Rock Alumnus, and New York City Ballet Principal Dancer, Taylor Stanley will be performing one of the most difficult and storied male roles, Apollo in Stravinsky and Balanchine's Greek Trilogy Ballet through Feb 2nd. Here is a wonderfully insightful article by The New York Times on his journey into the role.
– as he faces the challenge of performing “Apollo,” he said he realized something: Maybe all this angst is part of maturing, not just as a dancer but as a person. “Is the pressure necessary?” he said. “Is it unnecessary?” He paused. He thought. He seemed, as he sometimes does, like a dance-world Hamlet.–
Congratulations and Merde on a fantastic performance this coming week, Taylor Stanley. We are so proud of your achievements.
