For two extraordinary weeks in May 2016, Company | E, in partnership with the Embassy of the United States in Azerbaijan, brought two of its signatures programs, and a whole lot of teaching, to the Azerbaijani Capital, Baku, and three cities in Azerbaijan.

The program kicked off with BROADWAY BOUND, Company | E's celebrated Broadway review. Featuring over 100 Azerbaijani singers, dancers and musicians and a star-studded line-up of Company | E artists, BROADWAY BOUND took the stage in Baku for two great concerts.

Then it was off on a three-city tour around Azerbaijan to share "SPEAK EASY." Choreographer Robert J. Priore's celebration of love and the exquisite music of Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Sarah Vaughn, Etta James and many of the other great voices of the '50s and '60s.

All along the way the Company spent days teaching, talking and building new partnerships and new friendships in one of the Caspian's most dynamic nations.
