Lauri Stallings was in this month's Dance Magazine as one of the "25 to Watch." She is such a creative force and has made quite a name for herself. She is choreographing a world premiere for Atlanta Ballet which will be performed in March if anyone is interested.

And by the way, welcome to Ballet Talk. We look forward to hearing more about Atlanta Ballet.
It isn’t perfect. There are parts of it that still need major tweaking. But the basics are firmly in place: The Atlanta Ballet’s “The Great Gatsby” is a major coup. The audience at the Fox Theater last night was still on its feet and cheering by the third curtain call; can this really be the sonambulet “Nutcracker” crowd?
For that matter, can these really be the “Nutcracker” dancers?
Yes, and that is one of this troupe’s proudest stocks-in-trade: versatility. Put these willing, youthful bodies in the right choreographic hands and watch what happens, especially when the material teems with some of the most intriguing characters ever to emerge from the pen of F. Scott Fitzgerald. You remember them from high school — Gatsby, Daisy, Tom Buchanan, Nick Carraway, Jordan.
