  1. Also - Woetzel would have been great a few years ago. I think he may be too senior now and not in tip top shape. But 10 yrs ago, I'd say definitely yes.
  2. What a fantastic idea! Gomes and Fairchild definitely. No to Vasiliev. How about Angel Corella? (Even though he's trying to run Barcelona Ballet.) Osipova yes. Tiler Peck and Sarah Lane too. I think Guillem is too senior.

She’s never disappointed me. However, she is now about 35 actually, and I believe her time to be promoted has passed. ABT missed a great opportunity. But, now I can understand
  6. Well said! Couldn't agree more.
  7. Thank you California for posting that wonderful clip! I agree with GeorgeB fan that Marcelo's love for his partner is always evident and that he is the best male ballet partner today - at least the best that I have seen. It's not just that Marcelo's partnering is flawless, strong and engaging, but that he doesn't differentiate between "dancing" and "partnering". With a lot of male dancers, even if they're good partners, there is an visual separation between when they do their own steps (as in "now I'm down stage right doing entrechats") and when they partner ("now I'm stage left spinning my
