Looks like Susanne Farrell's going to do a 90 minute class on June 24th in DC for adults. It says it's for non-dancers, but thought that there would be some people here interested anyway. I would just pretend to be a non-dancer
Have fun but be ready to be busted if you have had any training to speak of. I think she would recognize it in a flash; any teacher would really. They may not mind though.
I have a gigle for you. One of my relatives recognized her feet when checking to see if a restroom stall was occupied. Seriously! That is who came out and she spoke to her. Apparently they had met at some fundraising event. I'd have had nightmares after that if I were Miss Farrell.Laschwen

I tried to get a ticket last year but I think it was either only offered as part of a subscription package or it was sold out but this year I was able to buy one online as soon as they announced it.
I can't wait -- just to be in the same room with Suzanne and watch her work, even with amateurs, is an amazing opportunity. I'm not all that worried about the non-dancer part -- I bet a lot of those attending will have some ballet background since that would be the natural pool of interested people. It would surely be a first for me to be thrown out of a class for knowing too much rather than not enough!
I'll report back...

Ms. Farrell does have very distinct looking feet and ankles. I think I would recognize them anywhere too! After meeting her on the street one day I was impressed with her directness and the fact that she took the time to speak with me. I wish I could be in Washington, D.C. to take this class!

That's what I get for not keeping up with BT on the weekends!

I think they say non-dancer (although I didn't see that on the page) to mean no pre-pros. It's not a master class... its a special class for adults.

My mother is taking me to see the Suzanne Farrell Ballet do Balanchine's Don Q on the night of June 23 as a 30th birthday gift, as well. I am so excited!
