Ellen Bar is featured as a "muse" in J Crew catalogues and advertising. She's interviewed on J Crew's website (look at the left for her name and click)

I'm sure they'll be more publicity and interviews as we approach the debut of film she co-produced of Jerome Robbins' NY Export: Opus Jazz the Film on PBS.

Bar is one of my favorite dancers at NYCB. I first noticed her when she performed with SAB at BAM. She performed the grand pas de deux from Nutcracker and also a solo from Raymonda. Ever since then I hoped to see her do adagio pas de deux again. She seems to be cast more as the big, happy athletic woman, which she is. We got a hint of the drama she's capable of when she performed with Nilas Martins' group at Dicapo Opera a few years ago.
