Huxley delighted audiences at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center by dancing both weeks, including opening and closing nights, July 5 and 16, respectively. He performed in “Fearful Symmetries” opening night and in “Emeralds,” the first act of “Jewels,” closing night. He was also in “Square Dance” and “Dances at a Gathering.”
His performances showcased the altitude of his leaps and his crisp, precise footwork. He joined City Ballet as a member of the corps in 2007. He is the 2011 recipient of the Janice Levin Dancer Award, presented annually to one of the ballet’s most promising young dancers.

A graduate of the Australian Ballet School in Melbourne, Hollingsworth joined the New Zealand Ballet in 1994, before setting off for Denmark’s Peter Schaufuss Ballet and later, London’s Rambert Dance Company. In 2000, she became a founding member of Bonachela Dance Company, headed by Spanish-born choreographer Rafael Bonachela.
Her relationship with the Spaniard remains to this day, with the pair filling the artistic director and dance director roles respectively at the Sydney Dance Company (SDC), and it was with Bonachela that she worked for the ‘pop princess’, starting with a performance of mega-hit Can’t Get You Out of My Head at the 2002 Brit Awards.
