    In the interest of full disclosure, I am the father of Andrew Wingert who performed with MB II this past Saturday. With that said, I would like to point out that I believe that Ms. McClune erroneously identified Jose Soares as the male dancer who’s solo began “and then it rained”. The male dancer who opened the dance was Gerardo Olivares Avelar, who indeed did a wonderful performance. Mr. Soares, also, performed outstandingly during his time on the stage during both performances at South Milwaukee. As a final point, I was stunned to read that Ms. McClune is dismissive of traditional ballet pieces. Why in the world would the Urban Dial send a critic to critique a ballet performance who admittedly has little tolerance for traditional ballet. I do not know whether Ms. McClune stayed for the question and answer period with the MBII dancers following the performance but if she had she would have learned that when asked, many of the dancers stated that they prefer classic ballet over the contemporary. It is disappointing to know that the dancers who performed in the two classic pieces had their performance so dismissively appraised.

    @Howard Wingert You are correct, Gerardo Olivares Avelar was the dancer who opened the dance. We’ve correct the story.
