Sierra Nevada Ballet performs this month.

Since Sierra Nevada Ballet utilizes a number of professional dancers -- alongside an assortment of apprentices and trainees -- it can be expensive for the company to keep the professionals in town for an extended period. So, Porter said, a tight summer schedule allows them to stay frugal while producing high quality art.

Courtesy of vrsfanatic, a link to a double interview with Dylan Gutierrez of the Joffrey Ballet and his mother, Andrea Paris Gutierrez.

Obviously, Andrea comes from a different perspective from other dancer parents, having been a dancer herself, but it could have easily been a double edged sword—maybe she knows too much, and it wouldn’t be the first time an impassioned stance led to irrational behavior. Having a parent who was also a dancer is like the set of ingredients needed for the perfect storm—though a storm isn’t necessarily a bad thing, just tumultuous. The end result for the Gutierrezes is a good one, with Dylan living the dream in Chicago, and judging by their interactions on Twitter, they’re close. Curious as to how they’ve gotten to where they are, I asked them if they would discuss their past and the nature of their relationship.

A story on Garry Stewart of Australian Dance Theatre.

The book Fifty Contemporary Choreographers from British academic publisher Routledge names Stewart alongside such luminaries as William Forsythe, Twyla Tharp and another Australian, Graeme Murphy.

This weekend Stewart is presenting the Australian premiere of a new work with West Australian Ballet, and his company, ADT, is up for four awards at the Australian Dance Awards in Brisbane.
