Emily Patterson of the Joffrey
Posted 20 October 2001 - 10:42 PM
I must say that what made the whole ballet for me was the dancing by Emily Patterson for Variation VI. Though her partner was very good, I felt like any one of the excellent male dancers of the Joffrey could have performed that role. It was Emily's perfect tempo and elegance and grace and radiant beauty and mesmerizing execution of Arpino's choreography that held me entranced and wishing that Variation VI would never end. WOW. I couldn't take my eyes off of her the rest of the night.
Not only is she an enchanting dancer, but she has the most radiant, warm, and genuine smile during the curtain calls. She's a joy to watch, even during the curtain calls. I believe the Joffrey has a real gem in Emily.

Seriously though, I certainly am looking forward to her next performance so that I may be hypnotized once again by her beautiful dancing.
