When in Paris...The Interview with Yuan Yuan Tan:

Still, even in such a youth-centric profession, Tan is adamant that experience can win out. “Right now, technique is overemphasized, but how you deliver it is a fine art. It’s in your aura on stage, your confidence. You’re not just doing gymnastics and I think even non-dancers can tell on stage who is the star and who is the wannabe.”

I heard him on the radio this morning -- he said it was interesting to be in Africa since it made him feel small.

I'm not sure about "small", but at least he would meet people of similar height. ;)

Apprently Yao Ming is in the wine business (Napa Valley, of course) - I did not know that. That was something Ms. Tan mentioned on Twitter.

"Meanwhile, He Hui, China's operatic soprano, and Tan Yuanyuan, San Francisco Ballet's prime dancer, were both honored as the most influential Chinese in the world of art."

A short article in San Francisco magazine online - be sure to click through the image gallery (Yuan Yuan Tan's comments are enjoyable):

Yuan Yuan was invited to a private screening of Yuri Possokhov's RAkU, with YYT in the lead role, naturally, at Lucasfilm (I presume George Lucas was part of the audience). Hopefully this means the ballet is going to be available on DVD soon. Fingers crossed.

YYT also posted a really great photograph of Davit Karapetyan holding her aloft while performing Possokhov's The Bells

for a St. Petersburg audience.
