Flash Reviews are instant impressions of performances, posted the day after the show. The Dance Insider is the only online or print source for overnight reviews. Why wait? Read about last night's performance today. To find out more about our Flashers, click here. (Note: Flashes of Saturday performances are posted Monday morning because, hey, even Flash Reviewers and webmistresses need to sleep in on Sunday.)
