Regardless of the dancer's actual age, isn't it most important that she be able to "project" the appropriate age for the part? Like many ballet dancers, Ansanelli appears (onstage, anyway--I haven't seen her in person) rather younger than she really is. As much as I enjoyed her dancing, I really thought she came across more as a young woman than a mature, married lady with a 12-year-old son.

Thank you! Ballet is not a literal art. You do not cast a ballet the same way you cast a film. You find a dancer who can, through movement, hit the right emotional notes and relate appropriately to the other characters.

If necessary, go to the make-up box. And if necessary, have the dancer change her/his posture, but then, we're again talking about movement.
