“I always look forward to Jete dance party…it’s a fierce night out with with fun energetic people,” said Aaron Jackson, choreographer for the evening’s high-energy showcase entertainment set to Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face.”
“I chose Gaga because I am a fan! I love that she takes risks in her wardrobe, beliefs… I also think she is a inspiration to individuals trying to find themselves and their identity.”
The sold-out event for young professionals not only financially supports the ballet’s programs but also showcased the talent of the city’s local performers, such as Jackson.
“During my eight seasons [as a dancer with] the Washington Ballet, I choreographed for each Jete Dance party. Getting in the studio for creation on talented dancers…there is nothing like it! It’s the best ‘high’ ever!!”
