Baryshnikov still has moves of an athlete

By GUILLERMO PEREZ
Special correspondent for the South Florida Sun-Sentinel
March 2, 2004

Mikhail Baryshnikov, the former lord of the leaps, managed to reassert how entrancing the simplest weighted gesture can be, with a program titled "Solos with Piano ... or Not" at Miami's Gusman Center on Friday.

From Marcia Siegel in the Boston Phoenix:

Aleksandr Petrovsky comes to town - Or, Mr. Big’s defeated rival dances at Boston Ballet
Quote:
Creative dance in Boston gets a shot in the arm this weekend from Sex and the City’s Mikhail Baryshnikov, who’s concluding his current solo tour with two benefit performances at Boston Ballet’s Grand Studio on Clarendon Street to benefit the Ballet and Summer Stages Dance at Concord Academy.

A brief comment from Christopher Muther in the Boston Globe, Lord of the prance, mentions tickets are still available.... Because it is a benefit ticket prices are high but "you’ll be treated to some fine dance and public performances that are rumored to be among Baryshnikov’s last."

On a facing page of the print edition, an item in the "Names" column, THE SHOW WILL GO ON , refutes the rumor: "'He's never going to stop dancing, that's just not him,' said Christina L. Sterner, managing director of the Baryshnikov Dance Foundation. "

Although I didn't find this article, intended as a preview, until after the performances, I decided it is interesting enough to post.

From Susan Daniels in the Patriot Ledger:
DANCE PREVIEW: Baryshnikov returns to the solo stage
Quote:
....
‘‘In a funny way, this feels historic to me,'' added [Amy Spencer, co-founder and director, along with her husband, Richard Colton, of Summer Stages Dance at Concord Academy], who performed with the illustrious dancer in several venues during the 1980s and '90s. ‘‘These are the last two performances of a world tour, and I don't know when we'll see him dance again in this kind of program,'' she said about the kick-off event to expand Summer Stages Dance more securely in the local dance community.

Dana Bisbee of the Boston Herald on Baryshnikov 's performance:
Boston’s dance enthusiasts leap at chance to see Misha
Quote:
The Russian may have been rejected on “Sex in the City,” but he was Mr. Big at Boston Ballet on Friday and Saturday nights.

Ballet superstar Mikhail Baryshnikov (who actually is Latvian, having been born in Riga in the old Soviet Union in 1948) ended a yearlong solo tour with two performances at Boston Ballet’s South End studios.

Mikhail Baryshnikov, mover and shaker in the arts community, never slows down. This week, he cruises into the Prince.

I'm currently going to music school for guitar but after being there I have really wanted to know how to learn piano! I have started writing songs and I find that a lot of other songwriters use the piano instead of guitar.If you already know how to read the music and you know where the notes are on the keyboard then just start out playing simple music and just work your way up from there.
