In case you're not following Morphoses or the Vail Int'l Dance Festival on Facebook, here is a link to Morphoses rehearsal photos by Kyle Froman (!) on the Vail Valley Foundation blog. Several NYC Ballet dancers are performing: Wendy Whelan, Adrian Danchig-Waring, Tiler Peck, Joaquin De Luz, Craig Hall, and Tyler Angle; there are a few others I can't identify in the photos.

Joaquin De Luz is actually not performing with Morphoses but
Gonzalo Garcia, Maria Kowrowski, and Jason Fowler -- as well as those mentioned above -- are part of the company. Former NYCB dancer Edwaard Liang is also with Morphoses.

Morphoses will also be performing at Summerstage in Central Park (free too!) on 8/14 and 8/15. I'll miss it (will be in London), but if you haven't seen Edward Watson (such a wonderful dancer) of the Royal Ballet -- who also performs with Morphoses -- do try to get to one of these performances. A new ballet called "Whither Shall I Wander" was made on Edward and Wendy Whelan
and will debut in Central Park (I can't believe I'm going to miss this!). From the very short preview clip that I saw it looks wonderful (I'll try to find the link and post if I do find it).

And speaking of Wendy -- was anyone in Vail last night for Wendy's tribute (mentioned in the NYT on Sunday)? I'm hoping that there was press there too.

Here's the preview clip of the new ballet for Wendy Whelan and Edward Watson.
You have to be signed up for Facebook to see this (it takes just a minute or two):

Thank you, Deborah. Non-FB members can view the video directly on Morphoses' own website, here.

Looks great, can't wait to see it at Summerstage. Thanks Deborah, and have a great time in London!
