Did anyone have a chance to see Atlanta Ballet's The Great Gatsby? It was truly fabulous -- great reviews and standing ovations at every show. Lauri Stallings, who is Atlanta Ballet's choreographer in residence, choreographed an entirely new production, working with AD John McFall. It was such a departure from Atlanta Ballet's traditional fare -- and the company rose to the occasion spectacularly. Courtney Necessary was one of the dancers cast as Daisy, and she was so beautiful and ethereal. Jonah Hooper was Gatsby, and he was fabulous as well. Hope some of you were able to see it. Lauri Stallings was in this month's Dance Magazine as one of the "25 to Watch." She is such a creative force and has made quite a name for herself. She is choreographing a world premiere for Atlanta Ballet which will be performed in March if anyone is interested.
