BWW Reviews: Gelsey Kirkland Presents THE NUTCRACKER
December 23, 2014

'Tis the season. On December 11, 2014 my first viewing of The Nutcracker this season was the opening night of Gelsey Kirkland Ballet's delightful version, choreographed and directed by Michael Chernov, co-artistic director, after Vasili Vainonen, assisted by Gelsey Kirkland and Alexandra Lawler. What a pleasure! The decor and the costume design, adapted by Chernov, are beautiful, even a growing Christmas tree. Especially impressive are the doll cabinets: the large mechanical clock, which housed the three mechanical dolls in the party scene, and the huge toy cabinet, out of which emerged dolls, representing the dances to come in the second act and toy soldiers, standing on the top shelf, in the Midnight Battle. Costumes were by Jennifer Wood-Bonnell, Lynda Mead, Susan Sandford, Jetty Maika, and Naomi Morin, and carpentry by Technical Director, Brandon Walker.

BWW Reviews: Misty Copeland Contributes Electric Energy to the American Ballet Theatre
November 12, 2014

When a gifted dancer continually gets better and better, breathes fresh air into a classic ballet, and attracts all the eyes in the theater, attention must not only be paid, but commanded. Misty Copeland is proving herself to be just such a dancer.

BWW Reviews: LEGEND OF LOVE Opens the Bolshoi Cinema Season
November 5, 2014

With live broadcasts­ in major cities around the globe, the Bolshoi Ballet opened it's season of seven simulcasts with Yuri Grigorovich's Legend of Love, originally performed in 1961, with Maya Plisetskaya, Marius Liepa, and Natalia Besmertnova in the leading roles. In this current production, the principals were Maria Allash (replacing Sveltlana Zakharova), Denis Rodkin, and Anna Nikulina. The drama of this story was written by Turkish Poet and political prisoner, Nazim Hikmet, while in prison. The composer, Arif Melikov was in attendance, at the Bolshoi Theatre. The set designer, Simon Versaladze, created a Middle Eastern decor. The costumes, too, although anchored on colored unitards, had a Middle Eastern flavor.

BWW Reviews: Kathryn Posin Brings Contemporary Ballet and Voices of Bulgaria and America To the 92nd St. Y
November 4, 2014

From a modern dance education, Kathryn Posin has emerged as a contemporary ballet choreographer. In the program, she presented, October 17, 18, & 19th, at the 92nd St. Y, with Associate Choreographer/Associate Artistic Director Momchil Mladenov, her long time collaborator, the girls danced on pointe, in every ballet. The vocabulary is decidedly classical with a contemporary approach, meaning that the movement dictionary is enlarged to include today's culture. Emil Tabakov, acclaimed Bulgarian conductor and composer, who had a hand in this production, was in attendance at the 10/17, 8:00 PM performance, which I was fortunate to see.

BWW Reviews: Misty Copeland - A Star Is Rocketing at American Ballet Theatre
August 1, 2014

Misty Copeland, the rising American Ballet Theatre soloist, may not yet have been officially promoted to principal dancer, but her command of the stage attracts the full attention of the audience, as would any prima ballerina. Whether dancing principal or soloist roles, her strong technique and charismatic personality bring fresh air and excitement to both classical and contemporary ballets. Few dancers these days make me smile and spurt superlatives whenever I see them perform.

BWW Reviews: BALLETNEXT - The Great Leap Forward
May 22, 2014

Michele Wiles' BalletNext gave its best performance at BAM Fisher (Fishman Space), on Friday, May 17, Founded in 2011, the dancers have developed and matured into a cooperating, fluid dance company, rather than a group of interesting soloists without connection to each other. The two works presented had been previously performed by BalletNext and were welcomed back, demonstrating growth, deeper understanding of the works, and a stronger connection with the audience.

BWW Reviews: Dance Theater of Harlem Lit Up Jazz at Lincoln Center
April 30, 2014

On Friday, April 25th, the new Dance Theater of Harlem, now in its second year, presented three ballets. Pas De Dix, a set of dances taken from the last act of the full-length ballet Raymonda, choreography by Marius Petipas and originally staged for DTH by Frederic Franklin, offered this young company the opportunity to delve into the world of the classics. The dancers worked diligently to execute the steps and the feeling required for such a work. In the second variation Nayara Lopes was fresh and sweet, while Linsey Croop demonstrated qualities both strong and cute in the in the fourth variation. In general, however, while potential was evident, the dancers lack the experience and maturity to make the most of this ballet. I expect that in a few years they will be giving more assured, even exciting performances.
