Student expresses himself through dance
When it comes to expressing himself, Josef Capuano prefers ballet to words.
By Jill Duff-Hoppes | Orlando Sentinel Correspondent

"Most of the time, I'm very introverted, so I don't usually talk that much," said the 16-year-old student at Lake Howell High School in Seminole County. "I only say what's needed."
Once Josef puts on his ballet shoes and steps onto the dance floor, though, things are different. "It's like a change of character," said Josef, a dancer with the Orlando City Ballet. "You can express yourself. It's really cool."

The 11th-grader performed in the Orlando City Ballet's production of the holiday classic, The Nutcracker. Josef danced the roles of the Nutcracker prince, a Harlequin doll and the Russian.

Too much ballet?
When companies share turf, it's wise to diversify. By Diane Hubbard Burns | Sentinel Dance Critic


When does more of a good thing become too much?

That is the question dance supporters may be asking in coming seasons, as two recently established Orlando groups strive to gain toeholds as the city's second and third professional ballet companies.

Those neophyte groups go head-to-head in Nutcracker productions this month with the 23-year-professional Orlando Ballet as well as a slew of Nutcrackers presented by student groups in Central Florida's busiest ballet month by far.

But things could be heating up throughout the year for dance lovers if the dreams of the two new groups come true. Central Florida, a region that has struggled to support one professional ballet troupe and barely managed to keep a symphony orchestra alive, could face a lively trio of toe-dancing competitors vying for dance dollars and audience attention.

Season's ballet classic on stage
By Sara ShecKler | Sentinel Correspondent

KISSIMMEE -- A classic Christmas ballet opens at 8 p.m. today when the Osceola Center for the Arts presents The Nutcracker performed by the Orlando City Ballet.

"It's a wonderful story. George Balanchine introduced The Nutcracker to America and made it so popular," said Kip Watson, director of the center.

The Orlando City Ballet, under the artistic direction of Beatrix Aldana, is making its debut this year at the center, but this is the third year The Nutcracker has been performed at the Center for the Arts.

Clara, a little girl, and her family are having a Christmas Eve party. One of the guests is Herr Drosselmeyer, her godfather.
