Alastair Macaulay on debuts at New York City Ballet:

The most exciting news has been of younger dancers who have made debuts in other Balanchine roles. Lauren Lovette (as the “Raymonda Variations” ballerina) and Ashley Laracey (in the fourth, allegro vivace, movement of “Symphony in C”; as the third soloist in “Raymonda Variations”; and in the fourth role of “Robert Schumann’s ‘Davidsbündlertänze’ ”) have both shown real distinction, touching grace and wonderful clarity. There have been male performances of no less accomplishment: notably Anthony Huxley’s as the title character of “The Steadfast Tin Soldier” and as Ms. Lovette’s cavalier in “Raymonda Variations.”

Allan Ulrich reviews Oakland Ballet:

"Oaklandesque" is not an adjective in common usage, but if Graham Lustig has his way, this admission of the singularity of the city across the bay should soon find a place in the vocabulary of dance practitioners and dance audiences.
