And here you can see the photo of Dan with Patricia McBride in Coppelia:
Here's a snippet of the blog:
"It is a real honor now to be teaching Nikolaj's company dancers for a second consecutive year here at Royal Danish Ballet. My admiration for these amazing artists, who are among the world's best, grows daily. A few nights ago I witnessed them brilliantly perform John Neumeier's Kameliadamen (Lady of the Camelias), a passionate, deeply emotional work set to piano and orchestral music of Chopin and costumed in full-length, 19th- century dresses and suits. Interpretive and technical challenges abound , and all are beautifully met. From there this remarkable troupe will step into a program of three towering Balanchine/Stravinsky masterpieces, clad only in Balanchine's signature leotards and tights and mastering a full evening of Stravinsky's complex counts and changing time signatures. The challenges are great, but these dancers are definitely equal to the task, and I am very excited to see the program's premiere performance on April 27."

Daniel Duell was a very popular dancer at NYCB, and many of his fans, self included, will be interested in following his current activities. He seems to have built a promising enterprise in Chicago.

And some of the latest results of the later phase of it - not to omit credit to his wife, Patricia Blair, whose own career includes dancing in Edward Villella's Eglevsky Ballet - will be on view this weekend here in Chicago.
