I was just saying today that I would like to see Tom as Albrect.  Watched company class today and he had some beautiful front cabrioles and lovely arches for those sixes.  He probably has some acting chops too, watching him as both an evil step-sister and in the Moor's Pavane.  He should also get a shot at the purple von rothbart, especially with Sascha and Jared leaving after this season.

Agree that Forster is a soulful dancer.  Saw him in ABT's Lilac Garden and Company B at Sadler's Wells a few years back and thought him most impressive.  I feel too he may well be an impactful Albrecht opposite the tantalizing Ms. Abrera.  They are vividly matched. 


The STELLA AND TOM video is most beautifully shot.  The steady cam operator is a true artist .... and the setting spectacular.  Congratulations to the wonderful Mr. Salstein for exercising such apt taste in support of each and every element.

I liked this very much, but coming as it does right on top of the PBS screenings of the LeClerq documentary I was thinking of all the filmed duets we've seen staged as if it were an emotional encounter in the studio.

The company is launching a YouTube channel:





American Ballet Theatre has launched the ABT YouTube Channel, under the channel name of “ABTBalletTheatre.”  Offering an in-depth and candid look at the Company, the ABT YouTube channel showcases current dancers in two or three minute vignettes.  Taped segments explore experiences and points of view of ABT dancers, while adding to the experience of ABT performances with behind-the-scenes footage of rehearsals and day-to-day Company life.  Videos featuring special events and Company activity will also be posted.

American Ballet Theatre’s YouTube channel covers such topics as performance rituals, perseverance and competition.  Featured Meet the Dancer segments highlight dancers from each rank of the Company.  The channel provides users with a new social media experience in addition to ABT’s Facebook and Twitter presence.

Access to the ABT YouTube Channel can be found at www.youtube.com under the channel name of “ABTBalletTheatre.”

Welcome to the 21st century, ABT!  Here's hoping they actually do something substantial with it and even perhaps begin to compile a decent record of their dancers' work for posterity.

Does anyone know: Is there any way to "subscribe" to this YouTube channel so that you'll receive an email when each new video is posted, or do you have to go to YouTube and put it in the Search box every time?
