While it is still available from Indiana's WFYI station - the Indianapolis City Ballet Gala - inlcudes interview and complete PDD dance footage of Yuan Yuan and Damien Smith. Definitely recommended for fans of Tan and Smith.

This was the picture of Yuan Yuan that appeared in the SF Ballet program last year. This year, she has a more recent photo in the program which does make her look much more mature.

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.
