Sarasota Ballet announces its 2017-18 season.

Quote

What does make it different is the news, hard on the heels of the season announcement, that the company is downsizing—not renewing contracts for an approximate one-third of the 51 dancers who made up the company last season. It’s disappointing news not only for the dancers (some of whom learned of their unemployment too late to secure positions with other companies for next season), but for fans who’ve enjoyed watching such a full complement of performers on works like Balanchine’s Jewels.

Alexei Ratmansky and Cassandra Trenary speak at a YoungArts Critical Junctures Salon.

Quote

Park asked Ratmansky about the issue of choreographing for different companies; does he adjust his style or do the dancers adjust to him? He said it really depends on the company. The Bolshoi, NYCB and Paris, for example, have distinctive styles and each dancer shapes the steps and makes them look like their company's style. ABT dancers are more eclectic, and adapt to different styles. As a choreographer, he sets the steps and then coaches the dancers and finds it extremely rewarding to see them develop. "He celebrates the individual", Trenary added.
