From a film by Tiit Helimets (Principal with SF Ballet) representing the three colors of the Estonian flag - this is part 3, White:

 

Also, she appears in the Sean Hayes music video for the song Gunnin

 

 

For more clips and photos of Ms. VP I recommend looking at the Projects page of her website:

THanks for posting, pherank.

 

I have seen Sarah van Patten stop the show in the middle of an adagio [within hte Golden hour]. She is an awe-inspiring dancer.

In interviews Ms Van Patten tells the story of being selected for Juliet by John Neumeier at age 15.  Imagine carrying a 3-act ballet at the Royal Danish at 15? Despite her emotional performances, there's some steel in this girl.

I've often heard that it can help to be "too young" for such roles, because the dancer has no idea she/he is supposed to take things so seriously.  ;)

Kids don't overthink the role and the responsibilites.

Or to paraphrase Mark Morris in the Jacob's Pillow documentary, when talking about how older generations view younger ones, the younger ones still are having fun, and they haven't realized yet that they are going to die.

I'd say that van Patten, though she's been a star since she was young, is an old soul. Her Juliet [in Denmark] actually slipped on the stairs as she made her ballroom entrance and it didn't bother her.

He's always very good copy, isn't he?

Great photos, but the public-facing ones on her Facebook account are very lovely.

Congratulations to the newlyweds flowers.gif
