Interview with Yann Trividic on MCB Blog

2 posts in this topic

Former MCB principal dancer Yann Trividic is returning to the company to prepare for the lead role -- the Poet -- in Edward Villella's Neighborhood Ballroom. He left in 2004 and his just completed his degree in osteopathic medicine in France.

Trividic took only a few balletclasses while in school. The plan is to work a month or so with the company to regain strength, return to France to begin his practice, and than come back to Miami in the winter for the rehearsals and February performances.

I remember Trividic from my first 3 seasons of MCB-watching. He had a marvelous stage presence. This worked especially well in Neighborhood Ballroom, a series of 4 episodes in the history of a dance hall: Waltz/ Quick Step/ Fox-Trot/ and Mambo. Without a powerful and, frankly, sexy male lead, the story line and dancing simply will not support a full-evening. Energy flags and the mind and eye begin to wander. Trividic held it all together. His replacements since he left have not have not. Welcome back, Yann.

If you attended the International Dance Festival at the Kennedy Center in 2003, you would have seen Trividic dancing Phlegmataic in MCB's 4Ts. Alexandra Tomolonis, reviewing for Dance Magazine, wrote:

Miami City Ballet's superb production of Balanchine's The Four Temperaments was considered by many to be the hit of the festival. This was topdrawer Balanchine, edgy and energetic yet subtle, the soloists dancing, rather than emoting, their roles. Yann Trividic's snaky, jazzy Phlegmatic was a standout.
