Alastair Macaulay reviews the New Chamber Ballet:

http://www.nytimes.c...w.html?ref=arts

The word “enterprising” always applies to New Chamber Ballet. On Saturday night at Studio 4 in New York City Center, in addition to its usual accomplishments of presenting new and recent choreography with live music, it offered a program set entirely to music written in the last 30 years. Let nobody underrate this. Of the dozens of ballets seen in New York in the last two months, how many have been to music more recent than Stravinsky or Britten?

A review of the Royal Danish Ballet in New York:

http://calitreview.com/17903

RDB’s La Sylphide is wonderful, lush and filled with exquisite detail. The scenery is understated and sophisticated—a perfect foil for the dancers, who move with a markedly unostentatious quality, even as they execute technically treacherous feats. In the second act, the sylphs seem to breathe as one; in the jigs of the first act, their movements are precise without losing the feeling of spontaneity.

"They've added 12 new classes i believe. they have everything from jazz to men's ballet dance to of course ballet and zumba. It's incredible," said Anne Namba, fashion designer.

There are two other Ballet Hawaii locations, one in Wahiawa and the other in Kapolei.

The Birmingham Royal Ballet travels to Ireland with "Coppelia."

http://www.independe...et-2806098.html

Today this international company is based at the Birmingham Hippodrome and tours extensively. Recently, the company completed a three-week tour of Japan; David Bintley is artistic director of both Birmingham and the National Ballet of Japan. When we meet, he is playing Sudoku. "It's a feast or a famine," he laughs, but one suspects that it's mostly a feast for this Yorkshire-born dancer and choreographer who was stage-struck at the age of four. He worked under the great Sir Peter Wright, Birmingham's Director Laureate who choreographed this production of Coppelia. Bintley is passionate about his country's fine tradition, believing that British ballet "leads the world in narrative dance and production values".
