Thanks for putting that up. I'd never seen her. She looks about right for the rep. :D

Who in the world ever allowed that photo to be published? Certainly the dancer would not have approved it. Is it actually in the brochure or published somewhere? It is really frighteningly bad. :eek:

For something slightly more flattering, there is a video of her at this link:

All I have to say is WHOA. I've never seen a dancer do 7 consecutive turns during fouettes.

Now that's a good thread. The NY Times is really good at selecting terrible!!!! photos. Like the picture of Ashley Tuttle on the front page of the Sunday Arts section. Ashley is really beautiful, but that picture was not flattering. I think the worst I have seen was one of Carlos Acosta on the front page of the Times advertising the article on him being the most astounding and elegant dancer. It was horrendous. I understand that the Times sometimes insists on using in house photographers, but who selects the actual picture. Pretty unbelievable!!

Just a note to say that I saw Ask Le Cour dance in Copenhagen Saturday night (November 16) - the Royal Danish seems to be making him work up to the very last minute he gets on the plane.

He did Bournonville's Konservatoriet, a male demi role, although a fairly prominent one. Very nice footwork and good stage presence - tall and rangy, more Peter Martins than Nilas Martins, with a devilish cleft chin that I'm sure will delight the ladies. He could be a keeper.

In today's NY Post there's a tidbit about Carreno hopefully joining soon as a soloist, apparently there's been visa troubles.
