Philadelphia Magazine article

4 posts in this topic

Just wanted to call people's attention to an article in this month's Philadelphia Magazine by a sportswriter for the Philadelphia Daily News on Arantxa Ochoa, one of Pennsylvania Ballet's Principal Dancers. I found the article to be surprisingly well-written given that the author has never written an article on dance before- though there are a few too many sports analogies for my liking, the author is deeply respectful of the art form. And since PA Ballet has been touting the athletic abilities of its dancers in its ad campaigns for the past few years, it seems pretty appropriate.

There's no on-line copy of the article available, but maybe your local Barnes & Noble or Borders carries Philadelphia Magazine? I know we have magazines for Miami, San Francisco & New York in our local bookstores...

Thanks for this, Tessa -- any coverage of ballet and dancers in a mainstream publication is good news, in my book :)

December 2002. I think the cover is about great holiday gifts or something...
