  1. Has anyone watched Jewels yet? All around I enjoyed the production, but was not a fan of Froustey's interpretation in Rubies. Here's my review - would love to hear what others thought.
  2. One of our contributors found the triple bill to be "nostalgic, sublime, and flirtatious"(here's her review). I'm looking forward to watching it this weekend.
  3. Writing these reviews gives me a chance to actively reflect on the art I have just seen and often brings to my attention just how much a piece has impacted me. It felt especially the case with this program.
  4. Here's my review of a wonderful program with variations from the most well-known to the more obscure of classical ballets.
  5. I may watch Bernstein again as I seem to be one of only a few who was not wowed by it; perhaps I will get something different out of it next time!
  6. Aside from Skylar Brandt's performances, I was not as wowed as I was hoping to be by this performance. I was especially unenthused about the premiere of Bernstein in a Bubble...Here's my review; has anyone else watched this yet?
  7. Wonderful and you're welcome! Did you read or listen to it? Willie's voice is amazing!
  8. An inspirational essay for young students and professionals alike regarding what it means to take risks as a dancer.
  9. Over four years ago, Pennsylvania Ballet started a pilot program – Dance for All – with the mission to create an environment where dance is available and accessible to any person who wants to learn and enjoy the benefits of our beloved art form. I had an opportunity to interview Valerie Amiss, a most passionate person who is spearheading the program, to learn more about these important efforts.
  10. This year's Signature Series featuring works by Andrew McNicol, Yury Yanowsky, and Jennifer Archibald so wholly exemplifies the company's continued excellence. Here's my review of last night's live stream; a rebroadcast will be aired on March 14th. I highly recommend it!
  11. This program of The Sleeping Beauty prologue and Abrazo, a premiere by Nayon Iovino, got me wondering if, at a time when dancers' faces must be partially covered, choosing repertory that leans more toward control than abandon is such a prudent choice. More thoughts here in my review.
  12. It's so curious that this came out today, as I just yesterday brought back to The Ballet Herald homepage focus on the original article that started this thread. Like Lauren Lovette, I retired considerably young (at 27) and mostly because I was tired of my life being controlled by the many gatekeepers we dancers encounter during the length of our career.
  13. Will you be able to see them? If so, lucky you! MCB also had a program of outdoor performances and Orlando Ballet seems to still be going strong in the theatre. Amazing.
  14. Last night I watched and reviewed the company's fifth program, which I think is wonderfully curated. Each time I see Sarasota Ballet, I am more impressed; I really hope that their digital presence this year brings them more global recognition.
  15. This program features three Jorma Elo pieces filmed this month - including a world premiere - as well as eight archival recordings that should take Boston Ballet fans on a trip down memory lane Here's The Ballet Herald review.
