It's pretty low on the Russian companies as well.

I wish they had posted the list of fourty (sic) critics who came up with that list. It has a very heavy European slant. Not a single dancer from NYCB?

 

 

I looked over the list quickly, but only noticed Julie Kent at ABT and Sonia Rodriguez at National Ballet of Canada. It's a pretty offensive list for us North Americans.

I think we all understand that no publication, not even the NY Times, can afford to send critics to see everything. A list of critics divided by continent, perhaps, could have selected honorees from among the companies they could realistically see. And it's really odd that they didn't list the names of the critics somewhere. At ballet competitions, the names of the judges are known to everyone, aren't they?

Agreed. It is certainly the fair thing to do. Dance For You is based in Germany, no? So I'm not surprised at the heavy Germanic slant, but they should make it more clear where their sympathies lie by publishing the list of judges/critics too.

They do run an English language version, and refer to themselves as an international publication, but Dance for You is very much a European-based project.  Take a look at the rest of the website.

Dancing away in San Jose

Ballet San Jose has lined up top dancers from around the country and abroad - including members of American Ballet Theatre, New York City, Boston and San Francisco ballets (Taras Domitro and Maria Kochetkova from our town) - to perform with the company at its Nov. 16 gala season opener at San Jose Center for the Performing Arts, celebrating the arrival of the ballet's new director, José Manuel Carreño. You can pay a grand for the full schmeer (dinner, after-party, maybe even goodie bags) or as little as $50 to catch the performance, which includes excerpts from works by Balanchine,Christopher Wheeldon and David Fernandez. For more information, go to www.balletsj.org.

A couple fun pictures of Masha, taken by Mathilde Froustey on Mount Tamalpais (southern Marin County), overlooking the San Francisco Bay Area:

I see that Yuri Possokhov's Classical Symphony was nominated also, for choreography. There's no mention in the article, but Kochetkova was the ballerina at the premiere in San Francisco. The article did not mention what critic nominated it nor what company the nominating critic saw perform it nor where -- it has been danced in Moscow and I think in Berlin. I'm glad to see it was nominated --I think it's a wonderful ballet and that American critics don't rank it high enough.

Apropos of nothing much except end-of-year, post-Nutcracker silliness, Maria Kochetkova tweeted this.

Kochetkova's tweet explains why she looked less than joyous and not very interested during her penultimate grand pas de deux on Friday evening.  Both Mathilde Froustey on Dec. 26 evening and Sasha De Sola at the Dec. 27 matinée  gave radiant performances of the grand pas de deux with beautiful execution and musicality.   Mlle. Froustey had family from France attending, including her father!
