My best friend is a choreographer and classically trained dancer. I am an athlete and have no dance talent whatsoever; however, I have had the privilege of watching Jenny's "process" since we were in our teens. She has taught me to appreciate beauty in movement and to admire artistic ingenuity even though I don't have a clue as to the names of the steps nor the significance of the performances as I watch them. That being said, every performance of DWDT I attend (and I have been to almost a dozen) evokes an emotional response that I can't put into words, but humbles me in its beauty, originality, and creativity...from the staging to the choreography, it is unlike any experience I have ever had in a theater environment. I describe it to friends as classical ballet and theater meet Cirque du Soleil. It is my hope, that more Houstonians and visitors to our underrated city take the opportunity to attend a DWDT ballet.
