Arizona Native

Paula Hartley of Ballet Arizona. Completely different types, from her and also from one another, but also impeccable, are Kanoko Inayoshi (also of AZ Ballet) and Natalia Magnicaballi (of Ballet Arizona and Suzanne Farrell). I'd have to agree with a previous poster, that the techncal barre for significant companies is so high, that many of the dancers have amazing technique ... what starts to separate them out are artistry, school of technique, and that je nais se quois.

In love with ballet
I'm surprised no one has mentioned Natalia Osipova yet...

Truly lovely.


i have recently dicovered videos of her. i think she is absolutely incredible, and her musicality is amazing. i would love to see her dance live.

as for dancers i have seen in a live performance; paloma herrera, herman cornejo, damian woetzel, ashley bouder, and murial maffre. and of course brishnikov, even though i've never seen him on stage.

Alla Sizova, hands down.


For the men, IMO, it is a tie between Herman Cornejo and Yuri Soloviev.
