Santa Fe - For one night at least, the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet could just as appropriately have been called Aspen Santa Fe Contemporary Dance. <a href=http://www.denverpost.com/Stories/0,1413,36~78~2309981,00.html target=_blank>more</a>

This ballet won't bore
By KIMBERLY NICOLETTI for The Summit Daily News (Frisco)

BRECKENRIDGE - If the word "ballet" elicits sleepy visions of sugarplum fairies, it's time to wake up. The Aspen Santa Fe Ballet plans to rouse audiences with a carnival of movement this week.

As part of its repertoire, the ballet company performs Twyla Tharp's "Sinatra Suite," which she choreographed for Mikhail Baryshnikov and Elaine Kudo in 1984. To date, she only has allowed three other dance companies in the world to perform it, which speaks highly of the quality she sees in the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet.

She sent Kudo to Aspen to teach it to the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet in June.

Aspen Santa Fe Ballet Joyce Theater, New York

by HILARY OSTLERE
the Financial Times

Ten bright young dancers energise this middle-range company. The dancers have ajoie de vivre that carries them through works - not always the best efforts of their choreographers. In a programme that featured one limb-entangling pas de deux after another, it was hard to keep track.

Backed by Bach and Sinatra, a Repertoire Rich in Allusions and Emotions

by JACK ANDERSON
the New York Times

His "Left Unsaid," to pieces for solo violin by Bach, suggested he is a choreographer worth knowing. ... the ways the choreography keeps pushing dancers together and tugging them apart soon suggest that this is a ballet of emotional as well as formal changes.

Footnotes: Out of the West come classical dancers who make ballet easy to watch
by TOBI TOBIAS for the Village Voice

... it's obviously interested first and foremost in success. It appeals with easily accessible choreography, forcefully executed by dancers who are as bright and attractive as the imaginary people in ads selling you vacations.

Ballet for children dancing into Eccles
by MATT JAMES for the Park Record

To make Taylor's ballet a more child-friendly program, Mossbrucker said that Aspen Santa Fe Ballet made some fairly significant changes to the program, condensing it to between 50 and 60 minutes, adding brighter, more visceral set design and costuming, and giving the show a narrator, actress Sarah Kennedy Roth.
