A review of the Bolshoi Ballet in "The Flames of Paris" by Luke Jennings in The Observer.

 

But Ratmansky's work always yields unexpected rewards, and guest artists Ivan Vasiliev and Natalia Osipova give a spectacular account of the lead roles. The pair left the Bolshoi in 2011 to seek wider horizons and have been stars of the international circuit ever since. Vasiliev's leaps and turns are jaw-dropping, but it's the resonance of Osipova's performance that gives the piece dramatic life.

A review of Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre by Jane Vranish in The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

 

Just back from the Beijing Ballet Competition, where he took the gold medal, Yoshiaki Nakano was brimming with confidence in the tango-esque section, marked with snapping, bullish poses. He was also featured in the "Peasant Pas de Deux" with the charming Amanda Cochrane. There he showed how much he has grown into his height since last season, looking more refined and graciously authoritative, with vertical aerial turns that descended into the most miraculously deep plies.

Tamara Rojo performs in Cuba.

 

The director's eyes sparkle when she talks about the forthcoming proposals of ENB: Nutcracker replenishment and a program entitled Lest We Forget, in commemoration of the centennial of World War I, composed of four new creations of great choreographers.

A TV news story on Ballet Hispanico de San Antonio.  Video and photo gallery.

 

Worthen's vision to bring ballet with a Latin flavor twist started on a dance floor. Ballet Hispanico de San Antonio is unlike any other company. Most of the dancers are from Latin America.

 

Yanailet Lopez and her boyfriend, Eddy Soto, are from Cuba. Both heard about a new ballet dance company starting up in south Texas.

A feature on Chengwu Guo by Sharon Verghis in The Australian.

 

But from the outset the young dancer has seemed destined for a high-octane, unconventional career trajectory. In 2008, he scored the role of the young Li in Bruce Beresford's film Mao's Last Dancer, which tells the extraordinary story of Li's life as a young dancer during China's brutal Cultural Revolution and his dramatic defection to the US. (Li, a close friend and mentor, says he sees himself in Guo, from his artistic curiosity to "the wonderment in his eyes and attitude to embracing a new culture - I was like that when I first went to America".)

An interview with Jean Marc Cordero.

Eventually, Cordero joined Ballet Philippines as a scholar at the age of 18, under instructor Noordin Jumalon, before finally becoming a company member in 2007 and continuously practicing with bigwigs Augustus Damian III and Alan Hineline.

 

For Cordero, Ballet Philippines is an exciting and very dynamic place to nurture one’s love for the dance. “I spent nine years working with and learning from different artistic directors,” says Cordero. Aside from Jumalon, he was also mentored by former artistic directors Cecile Sicangco, Agnes Locsin, Denisa Reyes, and of course, Edna Vida.
