Wonderbound fka Ballet Nouveau Colorado is now in Denver.

After twenty years, Ballet Nouveau Colorado has made the leap. The dance company is splitting in two, and the portion now known as Wonderbound has moved into Denver, to 1075 Park Avenue West -- at the confluence of Arapahoe Square, Curtis Park and Five Points. Wonderbound is sharing the building now known as "Junction Box" with Community Coordinating District No. 1, the group that's been working with the city to revitalize the area

A video interview with dancer Fernando Montano.

He talks to the BBC about how he pursued and achieved that dream, moving at the age of 14 from a port city on the Colombian Pacific coast to Cuba, eventually becoming the only Colombian dancer in the British Royal Ballet.

The dancer Pavel Dmitrichenko is detained in connection with the acid attack on Sergei Filin.

The New York Times

An official at Russia’s Investigative Committee told the Interfax news agency that investigators believe Mr. Dmitrichenko ordered the attack. The man believed to have thrown the acid at Mr. Filin was identified as Yuri Zarutsky. The third man detained, said to have driven Mr. Zarutsky to the scene of the attack, was named as Andrei Lipatov. All three have been detained for 48 hours.


Reuters

The daily Izvestia cited a friend of Filin's as saying that he and Dmitrichenko, who has been with the troupe since 2002, had quarreled over his management decisions.


Daily Mail

A Moscow police statement said: 'Today Moscow policemen searched the apartment of Bolshoi theatre dancer Pavel Dmitrichenko in connection with the investigation of the attack on the Bolshoi theatre head of the troupe Sergei Filin.'

The flat is in the same block as Filin but the dancer rented it out to a female tenant. 'This morning investigators brought Pavel here to the apartment,' she said.


The Moscow Times

News reports said investigators had identified Lipatov and Zaretsky by examining records of all the phone calls made near Filin’s house around the time of the attack. A similar method was used to determine suspects in the 2006 killing of prominent journalist Anna Politkovskaya.

The Kennedy Center announces its 2013-14 season.

On Tuesday, the Kennedy Center highlighted its jazz, dance, theater and international festivals for the 2013-2014 season, as well as the programming for the National Symphony Orchestra and the Washington National Opera. Although the programming included many of the usual suspects— violinist Joshua Bell, perennial runs of the Mariinsky Ballet — a week-long salute to hip-hop, an international theater festival and a tribute to Cuban jazz legend Arturo Sandoval indicate that the center is continuing its push to bring diverse audiences to its marble-encased halls.
