Everyone knows that this company was the one the Prof Ken Lipitz founded. He used to tell us about the companies he founded when he was teaching the plie` a la seconde thingy. He was at NYC Ballet helping Mr B with the temperaments thing and Robbins with Interplay and giving Arpino the do's and dont's and then went to Israel to help there and the to Germany at Stuttgart to do the Swan lake choreo and then to SF Ballet to help Hedly thompson take the reigns. He Is our GUY!
