Warren Carlyle stages excerpts from Jerome Robbins' Broadway work on New York City Ballet.

Quote

Mr. Carlyle said he had tried to put in as little of his own choreography as possible. “My role is to celebrate Jerome Robbins,” he said, adding that he had to create transitions between sections and choreography where some of the Robbins material has been lost. One of the lost fragments is the Times Square ballet from “On the Town,” which Mr. Carlyle has used in the finale, in what he described as a “mash-up of choreography.”

A review of the final two programs of San Francisco Ballet's "Unbound" festival by Rita Felciano for danceviewtimes.

Quote

The Festival’s Grand Finale — depending on your perspective — was the high energy, low interest “Bjork Ballet” by Arthur Pita. Last year he horrified/delighted the audience with his “Salome.” The new work partly masked, partly undressed the dancers in Marco Morante's spectacle costumes. Good to see was the short solo for the departing Principal Maria Kotchekova who, later dressed in tinsel and feathers, was carried out like a trophy. The Andres/Ingham couple performed a limb-curling number; Sarah Patten/Birkkjaer a slightly more sensuous one. Neither warrants rescheduling.......

An interview with Megan Fairchild.

Quote

She explains that her plans include, “Going to acting classes, doing a French immersion course in Bordeaux and teaching at a lot of ballet summer programs. In the next six years I will be attending Stern at NYU to get my MBA so that by the time I am done dancing I have a great degree to catapult me into a totally different career. In the end I would still like to work for a ballet company, but in an executive director capacity.”
