  1. Getting back to last night, and the Trenary/ Shayer cast. As I mentioned I found the ballet delightful. Having gone in with the understanding of its historical context I appreciated the humor. The first act was fun and charming, and I found both Shayer and Trenary to be wonderful in their acting. Hoven was funny as well, and I imagine bringing his character to life would be extremely challenging. Shevchenko is lovely and I always find her to be a tremendous tactician. Act 2 has a lot of dancing, more than expected given previous reviews. I found the children to be well rehearsed, and the
  2. Just a quick note, having just gotten out of tonight’s show.... I loved it! I understand some will and some won’t, but I approached it from the historical standpoint and went in prepared. More later but the principals were fabulous. Trenary’s Columbine was a dream! She slayed the difficult choreography with a smile on her face. Her acting is equally as good. Shayer was a great Harlequin, as well.
  3. I am at the Saturday matinee. The first intermission report..... Trenary never disappoints! A fabulous first act debut, and I am completely enjoying both Teuscher and Ahn. A very enjoyable matinee today. Teuscher was lovely as Nakiya. I have never seen Ahn but I was very impressed with him and look forward to seeing him again. As I mentioned, Trenary was a wonderful Gamzatti. She really embodies the character and draws in the audience. The corps in Act II was very good. It appears they have ironed out any rough edges; the audience was very appreciative with a sustained applause tha

  5. Cassandra Trenary posted a lovely video on Instagram of her and Gabe Stone Shayer rehearsing Harlequinade. It appears to be a repost of a Dance Magazine article. I am very excited to see this new remake!
  6. Hello Eduardo. I would suggest Boylston-Whiteside-Teuscher. I enjoy all of these dancers very much. Also, given Misty Copeland’s popularity with the general public you may be able to get better and less expensive seats for the Wednesday show as well. This is my opinion, of course, and I would be interested to see what others think.
  7. I plan to support the soloists and up and coming dancers this season. I chose to come into town the beginning of June to see the Teuscher/Ahn/Trenary Bayadere on Saturday, June 2nd matinee, and the Trenary/Shayer Harlequinade on Wednesday, June 6th. I may also add another Harlequinade to see Sarah Lane. Given the controversial feelings surrounding some of the principals and casting decisions, as an audience I feel we should support those who clearly have talent and will be carrying this company into the future. There are many others I would love to add, but unfortunately time and resources lim
  8. Tickets for the Vail Dance Festival go on sale today, February 20th. Www.vaildance.org
  9. I have two tickets for ABT at the Kennedy Center for Wednesday night, January 31. Balcony Row A, seats 124 and 126. I can meet you at the theater before the show. Message me if you are interested.
  10. ABT Fan he was actually quite good! I can see some growth still needed in his technique and stage presence but he held his own and the audience enjoyed him very much.
  11. I just saw Blaine Hoven’s Full Circle Gala presented by his home studio in Mobile Alabama last night. What a treat to see Hoven with Cassandra Trenary, Isabella Boylston, Stella Abrera, Christine Shevchenko, and Jose Sebastian! Trenary was the most amazing Kitri, not only in her artistry but in her technique. She nailed the 32 fouettés, was strong, charismatic and beautiful dancing with Hoven. Shevchenko also performed a wonderful Black Swan Pas with Sebastian and also completed the fouettés with just a bit of traveling. All of the dancers looked like they were enjoying every moment which made
  12. Bingham, you are correct. Davis won the Grand Prix at YAGP then went into ABT Studio Company.
  13. I think that there is a corps member who is quite suited to partner Part... Gray Davis. I understand that she rehearses with him quite often by request, and in fact has performed with him outside of ABT. He was injured a couple of years back and hasn't seemed to gain momentum yet again, but given the chance I think he would more than rise to the occasion.
