    I think its great that you are exposing the company like this. It will really help them. The director seems amazing. I'd love to go see them dance

    The way you are informing your audience is really good. I think that it was good how at the end of the article you gave some information to dancers who would like to audition or be a part of this production. At times, when I would read an article that talks about an event it sometimes has no information what so ever about when it would occur, so it is really good that you dont do that. It sounds like the performance was incredible, and it is very nice of you to talk about a performance like this. Im sure that with this article many more people went to watch it.
