Spoiler Alert: This review is about what happened Sunday night on the series finale of “Breaking Bad.” You’ve been warned. Vince Gilligan’s “Breaking Bad,” in so many ways the ideal TV show, gave until the very end, until its lead character, Walter White, a cancer-stricken chemistry teacher who turned himself into a drug kingpin of the gritty Southwest, died on the floor of (most fittingly) a meth lab. There was never a dull episode in the five seasons that “Breaking Bad” ran on AMC, including Sunday night’s heart-poundingly satisfying finale. Walt (Bryan Cranston) had his revenge on nearly everyone, in one way or another — from confronting his former business partners in their mansion to poisoning the Stevia packet of the duplicitous Lydia Rodarte-Quayle (Laura Fraser).

Roles ballet flats 1 that seemed solid were upended by jazz and modern-dance punctuation, leaps and patterns that consistently decomposed and reformed themselves in a kind of delightful cross-talk, The wonderful assembly of Mathilde Froustey, Joseph Walsh, Frances Chung, Gennadi Nedvigin, Vanessa Zahorian and Davit Karapetyan swiftly created partnerships and then often deconstructed those, Froustey stretched into arabesque like a modern-day sylph, Zahorian dropped back like a tango dancer, Karapetyan slammed his feet together as if part matador and part Tartar tribesman, Nedvigin quoted Robbins, Carrying them onward was Ratmansky’s ingenious spatial counterpoint and switchback forms..

The main event was Higdon’s “Dance Card,” commissioned by Salerno-Sonnenberg and composed for the New Century players. Indeed, Thursday’s vigorous, committed premiere, performed in the concert’s first half, seemed tailor made to demonstrate the full palette of orchestral colors and textures at this ensemble’s command. Higdon, this season’s New Century Featured Composer, came onstage to introduce the work and said the title derived from a memory of her mother using the anachronistic phrase “dance card.” The New York-born, Philadelphia-based composer joked that the score, structured in three fast and two slow movements, moves “the way I dance — uncoordinated and all over the place.” Well, maybe. The opening movement, titled “Raucous Rumpus,” certainly seemed packed to bursting, with chords spilling out in a cheerful, exuberant jumble. But the orchestra sounded well-coordinated and focused from the top.

Ramirez credits her survival so far to a fiery brand of determination. “Coming so close last time just made me want it even more,” she says. She also believes she’s much more mature compared to last season, when she was still living with her parents and attending Saint Francis High School in Mountain View. Since then, she has moved to North Hollywood to chase her dance dreams. “I’m more confident, and I’m a lot more comfortable with myself,” she says. As for Rich, who is on leave from her job as an instructor with Tiffany’s Dance Academy, she surprised herself by making it onto “SYTYCD” in her first try.
