NYCB Dancer @ Vail

I don't know if any of you are watching Vail's virtual festival this coming week, but I really enjoyed Opening Night. I was especially taken with Unity Phelan in Apollo with ABT's Calvin Royal.

Thanks for the reminder, Cassieallison - I downloaded the videos but didn't have time to watch all that last night. Looks like they were generous with the amount of footage.

I've also been enjoying the Vail Festival offerings. The interview with Heather Watts, Damian Woetzel and Unity Phelan and Calvin Royale III was very illuminating. I found Heather particularly inspiring, talking about how dancers should dance "like themselves" and develop their own responses to the music and choreography, rather than copying what earlier dancers have done. She's saying this as someone who coaches younger dancers in roles she has performed, not as a way of throwing out existing (masterpiece level) choreography.
