PNB just tweeted about PNBS (2009) alumna Alexis Peterson, was the lead author on a paper on cellular regulation that was published in June in the journal "Biochemistry". The tweet includes a link to an article on Peterson published on the Boston College website; that article links to a page from which the abstract can be downloaded. Peterson danced in PNB performances as Professional Division student.

In case you missed the notice in the Links section, Phillip Otto discusses his Nutcracker for Huntsville Ballet here. They've got the mayor of Huntsville and his wife in the Party scene...

Was rummaging around on the Kansas City Ballet website and found Josh Spell listed. Don't know what he's performing, but I'm glad to know he's still on stage.

Thank you so much for the heads up, sandik! I found this "Dancer Spotlight" Q&A from last November:

Q: What is one thing most people don’t know about you?
A: Most people don’t know that I retired from dance when I was 29 and truly thought I was finished. I closed the door on ballet and went to school full time for Interior Design. The universe works in mysterious ways and did not think I was finished, so here I am again dancing professionally.

Here's the link to the list of dancers page on the Kansas City Ballet website:
http://www.kcballet....ny/dancers.html

I'm so glad he decided to return to the stage. Kansas City Ballet is lucky to have him.

He's teaching at this the Pilates studio, and this is his bio on the studio's site:

Alongside his choreography for his own company, Olivier Wevers will be making a new Midsummer Night's Dream for the Grand Rapids Ballet Company (directed by Patricia Barker). They just performed Andrew Bartee's "arms that work," which was a requirement from the original commissioning sponsor -- they're scheduled to perform Wever's new work next spring, May 2014.

Forgot to mention, Seattle Dance Project is in the middle of a run right now, at ACT Theater. Tim Lynch is now the sole artistic director (Julie Tobiason is on hiatus) -- Alexandra Dixon is still in the ensemble as well. They're performing two works by Jason Ohlberg, a restaging (and tweaking) of last year's Departure from 5th, and a staging of the Vivaldi Gloria.

Joffrey Ballet posted an Earth Day tribute photo to its Facebook page, and it's of Kara Zimmerman and Mauro Villanueva in Wheeldon's "After the Rain."

Heads-up -- Olivier Wevers' Whim W'him company will be performing at the Seattle Center Playhouse (used to be the Intiman Theater) May 17-19. And in the distant early warning category: the company will be performing at the Joyce Theater August 12-13, and Wevers has commissions coming up in the 2013-14 season for the Grand Rapids company (run by Patricia Barker) and Ballet Austin.

Andrew Bartee will have a work on the WW May program, and has been commissioned by Wolf Trap to make a work for their national park series (he'll be working with images of Olympic National Park). He's also a co-artist in residence at Velocity Dance Center in Seattle with Kate Wallich, working on a program for the 2013-14 season.

I keep being amazed at the talents Andrew Bartee displays. He seems everywhere and he seems to be doing everything. He's as good at fully classical as he is at totally contemporary......not to mention his choreography. All this and at the same time, if you watch him carefully while on stage, he seems to be having a great deal of fun. Some folks were just born to dance!
