She has a very nice essay inside the back cover of the October issue -- part of their "Why I Dance" series.

PNB just tweeted, "Check your mailboxes for @Dance_Magazine. This year, Leta Biasucci is one of their 25 to Watch! http://ow.ly/i/1j7jS"

Last season, Leta Biasucci had featured roles in every rep, often replacing other dancers at the last and relatively last minute, and in none did she look like she hadn't been there from the first minute. She's one to watch and watch and watch. Congratulations to her :flowers:

PNB just tweeted a link to a feature on Carla Korbes written by Damien Woetzel in the February 2013 issue of "Vanity Fair":

PNB just posted a link to an interview with Seth Orza by Bodies Never Lie to its Facebook Page, and he reveals that Sarah Ricard Orza is six months pregnant. Congratulations to them :flowers:

I didn't see her on the cast lists for "Nutcracker" or "Romeo et Juliette," and I'm so glad she's not dancing for such a great reason.

That's going to be one beautiful (and talented) child!

There's a long interview with Carla Korbes by Marina Harss on DanceTabs - and some lovely photographs too.

(I've never seen her and was amazed to find she's blonde - I'd always imagined her as having very dark hair!)

Thanks for the heads-up -- I'll scamper over and look.

When the company performed Don Quixote, Korbës dyed her hair, and for a couple of minutes I didn't recognize her on stage. "That's Kitri's choreography, but who is that dancing?"

She also dons a dark wig for Anita in "West Side Story Suite.".

New Yorkers who see her in "Romeo et Juliette" this weekend will see her gorgeous hair down.

Margaret Willis just published a wonderful interview with Peter Boal in Dance Tabs:

So how long does he see himself staying on the far side of America? “Well, I am just about to sign another six year contract,” he grinned happily, and then joked, “That should at least see my kids through college.”

Leah O'Connor is graduating from the University of Washington this spring with a degree in sociology, earned while she's been dancing in the corps all this time. Big congratulations to her on this accomplishment!

I just received an email from PNB -- it's either to the subscriber or account holders list -- that gave us wonderful news about current and former PNB dancers who've had children:

If you haven’t heard, we’ve been having baby news recently. Mara and Oleg welcomed Hikari Ulyana Gorbouleva into the world on December 11, Jodie and Brian Thomas Pease welcome Siena Lane Thomas Pease on January 11, Sarah and Seth Orza welcomed Lola May Orza on May 15, and Chal and Ash welcomes Anika Eames Modha on May 20. Happy birthday, kids, and a happy 41st to you, PNB!


That certainly explains why Chalnessa Eames has not appeared in the last two Whim W'him programs :)

Congratulations to each family Posted Image
