Axel Ibot made quite an impression during the POB's visit to New York a few months ago. I'm glad to see that he was "ranked". What exactly does it mean to be "ranked"?

I guess ,it is liked being a runner-up. Maybe, next year, he will do better.

Perhaps I didn't use the right word... the dancers are listed according to the mark they obtain during the competition. They are promoted according to the number of positions available. It's a satisfaction to be in the list but it doesn't bring any privileges.

I could not believed that ABT did not hire Sae Eun Park when she was w/ the Studio Company. At the rate of her yearly promotion at POB, i will not be surprised if she becomes the 1st Asian Etoile of the POB .

McKenzie isn't always adept at recognizing talent within the ABT ranks.

From what I've seen of Sae Eun Park, her feet and legs are not at all up to par with the POB standard. She also seems to lack their signature refinement and that certain luscious quality that sets their dancers apart. The female premiere danseuse rankings I find most surprising... I've hardly even heard of Colasante, but have seen lovely dancing from all the girls ranked lower, several of which were featured in the US tour.

Sae Eun Park is very strong technically and naturally gifted. With those qualities, you often go fast in the 2/3 first ranks of the hierarchy, also because the system of the competition which requires in 2 variations to show what you can do. Once you are given small roles, you have to develop and show other qualities but she will have time to acquire the style because she is really talented. Does she have a talent to act, we will have to wait a little to know that.

Valentine Colasante is young and has risen fast in the hierarchy so she has not been given so much soloist roles but she’s strong technically and she has a way to get into the roles which has never disappointed me. She’s versatile and can be at ease in classics and in the contemporary rep, and it’s necessary with POB.
