I remember Lydia Abarca fondly, and I'll never forget a spectacular Corsaire pdd she did with Paul Russell (who hasn't been mentioned here yet) at one of DTH's mid-Seventies seasons at the State Theater. She often reminded me of Suzanne Farrell.

We had a chance to chat with her briefly after a performance at SPAC. She is utterly charming, very humble and appreciative of compliments from fans. She is also exquisite. A beautiful dancer and a beautiful lady.

We're missing one Very Big Name in today's ballet world. I'm surprised. A man, dancing in New York......many of you mention him frequently as "why doesn't he dance more???"

I haven't seen her, but Houston Ballet's Lauren Anderson is supposed to be pretty good.
