"Allegro Circle brings together a great group of people who love the ballet and gives them an opportunity to become more involved with the artistic and operational aspects of the ballet, both professionally and financially.  As a result of my husband’s and my involvement with Allegro Circle, not only do we see friends at every performance we attend, our appreciation for the ballet has been enriched by our experiences with the dancers, choreographers, ballet masters, musicians and others we have met over the last several years."
