Carla Korbes and Karel Cruz performed a pas de deux from "Concerto DSCH" in Dallas for TITAS' 19th Command Performance. The article mentions that Korbes performed in the "Don Q" pas de deux, but doesn't mention a partner, who I'm assuming was Cruz.

Edited to add: I missed this from"D Magazine'" which confirms that Cruz was Korbes partner in "Don Q."

Andrew Bartee is collaborating with modern choreographer Kate Wallich on an evening of work for spring 2014 at Velocity Dance Center. They've received a "Made in Seattle" residency grant from Velocity, a program that supports the creation of new work. They've been working together for a couple years, and showing the results around town.

Not sure if this fits, but PNB posted this pic of Jonathan Poretta at IKEA with Macklemore.

Carla Korbes and Karel Cruz are scheduled to perform in New Zealand Ballet's "Swan Lake," joining Amber Scott and Ty King-Wall of the Australian Ballet as guest principals for the run.  For this article, Ethan Stiefel said,

 

I believe that both sets of accomplished artists, alternating with superb casts from within our ranks, will inspire and entertain our audiences.

 

 

Korbes and Cruz were both injured during the last rep, and I hope they've healed.  Korbes is scheduled to perform in the International Evenings of Dance at Vail right after the NZ run, and I assume she and a healthy Cruz will be cast in the PNB performances (the opening gala, "Swan Lake" Act II/"Tide Harmonic," and all-Balanchine) at the Festival.

Ethan Stiefel, don't get any ideas...

Nice review of NZ Ballet Swan Lake with Karel Cruz as guest

 

"This prince, guest artist Karel Cruz, has a whimsical, vulnerable character, almost diffident. He is statuesque, with elegant legs that go on for ever as the peasants of the village dance exuberantly around him."

Another review of Karel Cruz in the NZ Ballet Swan Lake

 

"As Siegfried, the guest artist from Pacific Northwest Ballet, Karel Cruz, has regal bearing and command. Technically extremely strong, with soaring elevation, excellent batterie and neat placement, he is also a sensitive and caring partner. He is stronger in Act Three, his infatuation with Odile as powerfully conveyed. But in Act Two's great pas de deux, he seemed emotionally disconnected. This may well improve as the season develops."

Lindsi Dec will be dancing with Move: the company in "Pierced," a new work by director Joshua Beamish, at the Vancouver Playhouse September 7-9.  The company is scheduled to perform in NYC October 26-27 (venue tba) but I'm not sure if Dec will be appearing in that gig.  Beamish is one of the choreographers who made work for Wendy Whelan's recent "Restless Creature" project.

Patrick Fraser's film "Passage: Carla Körbes, Portrait Of A Ballerina" is going to be screened at the San Francisco Dance Film Festival on September 13.  It's been around online, but it would be nice to see in on a big screen...

Ezra Thomson and Saho Kumagai (from the PNB School) danced Price Suddarth's "The Spaces Between" from last spring's Next Step program in the Chop Shop showcase in Bellevue this weekend.

 

And Grand Rapids Ballet, directed by Patricia Barker, was also part of the programming.
