The performances will be part of a new dance festival organized by Claude Bessy (former director of the POB school) and Valery Colin (former POB corps de ballet dancer). It will take place outdoor, so let's hope July won't be too rainy !

The other ballerinas can do it, but they can't toy with it like she can.
Go if you can.

Paul, I couldn't agree more about LeBlanc in Square Dance!

One small article on yahoo.fr:
An introductive article in "Les Echos" (financial newspapers):
There are also the following articles on danceinsider.com:
Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend any SFB performance (I had originally planned to go to Paris this week-end for other reasons, and hoped that maybe I could get a last minute ticket, but had to cancel my Paris trip because of an ankle problem).
They haven't been lucky with the weather: it has been quite cold and rainy in Paris recently, and one performance was cancelled because the temperature was too cold.

Sounds like Stern Grove (minus the rain). They just can't win, can they?
Thank you for the links, and I hope your ankle gets better!

Some other reviews:
-by Debra Craine in the Times:
-by Jenny Gilbert in the Independent:
It's a pity the organizers haven't thought about a way to protect the audience from the potential bad weather: having some rain in July isn't very surprising, I remember a performance in the Cour du Palais-Royal which was interrupted by a very rainy and stormy weather (lightning, thunder, strong winds... It even broke my umbrella when I was on my way to the metro), and fortunately it was a cheaper ticket (the SFB performances are quite expensive- the cheapest tickets are at 25 euros- considering that it uses recorded music, and that the POB is performing in both of its theaters in the same period with orchestras and some cheaper tickets- this is not meant to criticize the organizers, as they can't rely on public subsidies, but I wonder if they managed to sell enough tickets in such circumstances !)

I know that Possokhov is represented by his and Tomasson's setting of Don Q, but I'm sorry they didn't bring either Reflections or Study in Motion. He's homegrown and I think as unique a voice as any out there in classical ballet (actually, more so.)

Would someone know who is the dancer who is on the advertisement that is on almost every walls of Paris ? She has some incredible feets.
The weather is warmer now, and it isn't raining anymore. I hope it will stay the same !

From what I've seen on another site, it is Yuan Yuan Tan and Yuri Possokhov.
There's also a tiny photograph of a dancer in a red tutu there:
The official site of the festival announces that the audience of the cancelled performance of July 7th will get free tickets for a new performance on July 14th (I wonder what they have planned for the people who can't attend a performance on that day- a lot of people are likely to go on vacation in this period...) and that those of the cancelled performance of July 8th will
get their money back. Also a new performance of the Balanchine-Tomasson program will be scheduled on July 16 at 3:30 PM.
