American Ballet Theatre is officially on the road. Since kicking their national tour off at Washington D.C.'s John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts this past week, ABT has been keeping us up-to-date: From how many pointe shoes they need to pack (spoiler alert, it's a lot), to rehearsal silliness and even an onstage moment or two. We rounded up our favorite moments so far—including a Facebook Live where Isabella Boylston and James Whitesidefinally explain the meaning behind their nickname, The Cindys. Next stop, Detroit!
