The Beauty of Dance, Part Six: Francesca Dugarte, Washington Ballet, Washington, DC

Originally from the Venezuelan capital of Caracas, Francesca Dugarte is turning heads in the capital of the United States as a member of the Washington Ballet's company.

She danced in various companies all over the world before arriving in D.C., and she earned a first-place award in Korea’s International Ballet Competition.  Ms. Dugarte's repertoire includes roles in The Sleeping Beauty, Le Corsaire, La Sylphide, and Diana &  Acteon, among other ballets.

Fun fact: She was a contestant on the Italian talent show "Amici di Maria de Fillippi." :-)
