Who are they?


Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me about the following:

Martine van Hamel

Steven Hyde

Bonnie Mathis

Alla Nikitini

Maria Simpson


I think that Martine van Hamel was in ABT...correct me if I'm wrong, but I am curious to know about the others.


Kaatsbaan is hosting a Winter Workshop and these teachers make up the faculty...

Martine van Hamel was not only principal dancer at ABT (and National Ballet of Canada before that), she is one of the four co-founders of Kaatsbaan. There is a great deal of published material to acquaint you with her body of work.


Here is a good article about Bonnie Mathis:

Here's a brief bio of Steven Hyde (third entry):

And, thanks to Sylphide's spelling correction below, I found Alla Nikitina's brief bio here:
