The birth of my new daughter – Alessandra Bella Wood – 3 months ago has been a blessing beyond words. Only images seem to be able to convey, with any accuracy, the beauty and profundity surrounding the arrival of our new little soul!

There are parties in DC and then there are PARTIES in DC! Last Saturday’s 10th Anniversary of The Washington Ballet’s Jeté Society (a society of young ballet patrons) Jeté Untamed was a PARTY no one will soon be forgetting!

The organizers of the much anticipated dance party made this year’s iteration all the more mysterious by not revealing the location of the soiree until the night of the event! “Look for the fire-breathers,” was the directive when asking for info from the Ballet’s representatives beforehand. The suspense leading up to the unveiling of the top-secret, never-before-used location on the Georgetown waterfront was well worth the wait, perhaps helping to make the 10th Jeté dance party the best one yet!!

Party Chairs Ashley TaylorWinston Bao Lord presided over the Cirque du Soleil meets Folies Bergère-like atmosphere –  where something new and unusual seemed to await you around every corner as you made your way through the building’s labyrinthine layout.

Washington Ballet Artistic Director, Septime Webre, in his SgtPepper best, was on hand to introduce a special performance by members of the Washington Ballet Studio Company. Former WB dancer turned choreographer, Aaron Jackson, fashioned the slightly naughty pièce doccasion, to the music of Lady Gaga, that sent more than a few tongues a wagging!!
