New York City Ballet Delights With a Varied Robbins Triple Bill

The All Robbins program offered this spring season by New York City Ballet is a testament to the range and depth of the choreographer’s genius. “Glass Pieces”, the 1983 work to the driving rhythms of music by Philip Glass, is an ideal opener with its masterful blend of postmodern and classical movement styles that call to mind the pulsating urgency of urban life.

On Friday, May 9th 2014, Rebecca Krohn and Amar Ramasar were outstanding in the section of “Glass Pieces”…

American Ballet Theatre Delights With Gallic-Flavored Highjinks in “Don Quixote”

On the rain-soaked evening of May 16th 2014, ABT delivered a mood-boosting performance of “Don Quixote” for a full house of grateful dancegoers at the Koch Theater in Lincoln Center. Dazzling Gallic-flavored dancing and full-throttle comedy to the music of Minkus helped to push dire flash flood warnings out of the minds of many in the audience. I heard plenty of comments during intermissions by people who said that driving in from the suburbs or sloshing through sidewalk puddles…

Profile Information

I am a
Dancer - Pro, Dance Teacher, Company Director, Dance Writer
About Me
I'm the Founder and Artistic Director of Ballet Ambassadors, an arts education company with the mission of giving children and teens in underserved areas the chance to share the stage with professional dancers in costumed productions of adaptations of the classics, original ballets, and world dance productions. I'm also Co-Editor-in-Chief of ThirdAge.com and a member of the Dance Critics Association. In 1997, David Wilson saw my byline in Dance Magazine and invited me to write for DanceArt.com. In March of that year, the New York Dance Scene made its debut. We called it a column because the word blog hadn't been coined yet! I'm thrilled to be back home at DanceArt.com.
My Favorite _______ is _________.
My favorite ballet is "Sleeping Beauty." When I was a child, I danced the roles of a Mouse pulling Carabosse's carriage and a Page during Aurora's birthday scene when the Royal Ballet came to Detroit where I lived at the time. That experience -- along with seeing "The Red Shoes" and reading "Dance to the Piper" by Agnes de Mille -- made me determined to become a ballerina!
I hope to
get sufficent funding for Ballet Ambassadors as we enter our tenth anniversary season in 2011 to make the company sustainable indefinitely.
