Let's check out United Ukrainian Ballet: Giselle at the Kennedy Center. Event begins at 7:30pm. From the website.
This remarkable company of dancers unites in a powerful interpretation of Giselle, specifically created for them by world-renowned choreographer Alexei Ratmansky.

Let's meet in front of the Kennedy Center on the Potomac River Facing Side at 7pm sharp. Please look for the PC Sign or contact the organizer via email or cellphone. Will send more details 48 hours before the event. Depending on group we can meet beforehand for dinner or grab drinks after. Will decide closer to the date.
