An interview with Miko Fogarty and her mother Satoko by Kaori Shoji in The Japan Times.

 

During our meeting, Satoko’s gaze was rarely off her daughter, and clearly there was a bond that went beyond the maternal. They’re both performance-arts professionals and, as such, her mother seems to know exactly what Miko requires to climb up another rung on the sky-high ballet ladder.

 

“It’s not a question of what she wants, really,” said Satoko (in English). “Because what she wants is to do ballet. It’s always a question of what she needs to get to the place she wants to go with the ballet. There’s nothing else.”

A review of Houston Ballet's season opener by Kristina Nungaray for Broadway World.

 

The second ballet of the production is a world premiere from former Houston Ballet dancer Melissa Hough. Set to Gabriel Prokofiev's String Quartet No. 1, ...THE THIRD KIND [IS] USELESS. is a marvelously jarring and enigmatic piece of modern dance that is both sensual and radical. Reminiscent of performance art, Melissa Hough's ...THE THIRD KIND [IS] USELESS. is a successful amalgamation of several styles that keeps the viewer watching each dancer with bated breath. Connor Walsh excels as the male lead whose inner humanness and psychological torment is exposed. He dexterously emanates a confidence and dominance while slowly altering to show an inner turmoil. Kelly Myernick delivers a powerful performance as Connor Walsh's foil....

Q&A with Darcey Bussell about the new season of "Strictly Come Dancing."

 

Do the judges receive feedback about how the celebrities are progressing between the launch show and their first performance on Friday, September 27th?

I wish we did! We don't see or hear a thing until their first performance. I'm actually quite busy over the next few weeks doing a documentary about dancing for BBC2, so I'll be filming that in between. It's about the history of dance and looking at the divas of the ballet world. I'll be travelling to Russia to speak to a lot of dancers over there. Luckily, I'm a natural diva too so it all comes easily to me!
