Congratulations to all the recipients.

:yahoo: and :flowers: to Postlewaite, a beautiful dancer.

Seattle is lucky in many, many ways.

A beautiful dancer indeed -- and Seattle really is lucky to have PNB (makes up for the Mariners, no?), although I think Boal has probably made at least some of his luck. I still remember Postlewaite from a couple of SAB workshops (he was so musical even then). At the time I thought "Won't it be delightful to watch this career unfold." Alas, I didn't think I would have to change coasts for that to happen!

Congratulations to all.

Sigh ... I got more than a little wistful when I saw the pictures of Körbes and Weese on the Vail Dance Festival site.

If Monaco thinks I'm going to forgive them for stealing my Juliette (Pantastico) by lionizing my Romeo (Postlewaite), then they may just be right :flowers:

Seriously, if you were luckily enough to have seen PNB's production of Malliot's R&J this last season, you will know just how special these 2 dancers are. Congratulations to both of them.
