Wendy Perron's Best of 2013


• Borderlands, choreographed by Wayne McGregor for San Francisco Ballet at War Memorial Opera House. With snaking spines, vibrating arms, and torsos diving through a partner’s negative space, this kinetically exciting premiere was danced magnificently by SFB. Lucy Carter's saturated lighting immersed the dancers in a unique environment.


Superlative dancers, heretofore unmentioned, who continue to top their own artistic achievements:
• Michael Trusnovec of Paul Taylor
Yuan Yuan Tan and Sarah Van Patten of SFB
• Stella Abrera and Sarah Lane of ABT
• Matthew Rushing, Alicia Graf Mack, and Linda Celeste Sims of Ailey
• Sara Mearns, Tiler Peck, and Georgina Pazcoguin of NYCB
• Jon Bond of Cedar Lake
• Carla Körbes of Pacific Northwest Ballet
• Julie Diana of Pennsylvania Ballet

BEST NEW CHOREOGRAPHY (world premieres or New York premieres.) - See more at: http://www.dancemaga...h.QC2KIMsB.dpuf


• Christopher Wheeldon’s magical Cinderella, made with a team that includes designers Julian Crouch and Basil Twist and librettist Craig Lucas. Enchanting transformations, smart choreography, and luscious dancing. Co-produced by San Francisco Ballet and Dutch National Ballet, seen at Lincoln Center.




• San Francisco Ballet’s Maria Kochetkova: a perfect ballerina in Serge Lifar’s Suite en Blanc, an absolute animal in McGregor’s Borderlands, a heart-rending motherless child in Wheeldon’s Cinderella, and a joyous Aurora as a guest artist in ABT’s Sleeping Beauty.
