Among the international guests were Washington Ballet, Milwaukee Ballet, Sarasota Cuban Youth Ballet Company, La Jovem Companhia de Ballet de Leiria, Portugal, el Ballet de Santiago de Chile, and Ballet Nacional de Panamá.

For its part, the National Ballet of Costa Rica performed “Dracula.” Several other ballet academies and dance studios from across the country were represented.

“A great weekend full of ballet, international stars and wonderful audiences at each of the events,” National Ballet of Costa Rica shared. “It was an incredible experience.”
