Has anyone seen her dance? I've heard from some people that she's one of the rising dancers at the RDB. She must be very young.

Terry, I haven't seen her. She is very young -- still a teenager, I believe. And, unless I'm mixing her up with someone else, which is quite possible, I think she's leaving to join San Francisco Ballet.

There's a fair amount about Miss van Patten available on Internet - her professors, etc.

She appears to be only 16 or 17 years old, and has already been entrusted with principal roles at the RDB.

Unfortunately, I have not yet seen her.

I've heard that she's coming here, and that we have every reason to rejoice.... including a dancer who can MOVE to inspire Tomasson to choreograph some ballets with a real kinetic interest in them again after several years of overheated spectacles....

Elizabth Loscavio was not much older than that -- if anything -- when she showed us what fun it could be to dance Tomasson's Menuetto -- which in everybody else's hands looked like nothing in particular, while she was tossing her head back and dancing like a little maenad......

If Sarah van Patten brings any of those qualities, all I can say is thank you, thnk you , thank you....
