Congratulations to him :flowers: His dancing is a beautiful combination of plush muscularity and stature. We were lucky to see him in "Don Q" on tour in Vancouver.

AND...another good-(and rare, as we all agree by now)-example of racial diversity in ballet.

Natasha...I get the feeling he won't be too long in the Cuban ranks...so let's see. At least Valdes has-(once again)-another reliable partenaire.

Edited to add: The second comment on the following Youtube clip states...: : "Suffer you all..! Now all he needs is to be part of ABT, RB or POB"

Helene....this is from that performance in Vancouver you saw. Unreal moment from 4:28 to 4:42.

Thank you, Cristian! I watch this -- especially Osiel -- and my soul is sparked with positivity. This is why I (we) love ballet.

Now with Gounod I notice that Valdes' partenaires are becoming more and more her juniors. There's quite an age difference between the two of them.
