San Francisco Ballet's principal dancer Sofiane Sylve tweeted this video, which apparently has won a first prize (well, she says 'price'), though she doesn't say where.

 

I have no idea what's going on here, but Ms. Sylve could probably make walking across the street in a  thunderstorm while carrying three bags of groceries look like a work of art, so maybe it doesn't really matter what's going on.

This was interesting PeggyR - I happened to see the link on her Facebook page. The dancing is certainly only part of things: the fashions and the video editing are obviously a big part of this multi-media effort. I'm not sure either what prize was won for the video.  ;)

I'm wondering who did the choreography - Sylve?

It can be difficult to find footage of Sylve dancing, so I was happy to come across these videos online:

Sofiane Sylve and Carlo Di Lanno in Italy (La Scala?)
>> Some live footage of the pair as well as an interview in Italian and French

Sofiane Sylve Artist Spotlight video:

Actually quite interesting as these "Artist Spotlights" go - I didn't realize how involved she was in teaching (though I knew she was guesting with the SFB school). It seems pretty clear that she has another career ahead of her.

 

I just saw Sylve as the "Tall Girl" in Rubies - Sofiane commands the stage in a way that no one else at SFB quite matches.
