No, Ansanelli, another dancer with great imagination and flair for story-dancing. I miss her.
Didn't Tiler originate Carousel A Dance with Woetzel?
I think the point about Balanchine schooling his dancers to become what he needed was key. I also think that, especially with choreographers like Wheeldon and Ratmansky -- essentially global freelancers, even if they are Choreographer in Residence somewhere or other) -- the most important quality they look for is the ability to understand what he wants of them. Sometimes -- you know? -- people just miscommunicate with each other. Especially in the arts, where suggestions may be more poetical than specific. And further complicated if the choreographer, working in a second language, uses a word with unintended nuance.
