The very talented Vanessa Carlton was also a destined ballerina. Almost finished the ASB curriculum at age 17 before she found her true calling. :roll:

Yes, Vanessa Carlton attended SAB and was even in the 1997 and 1998 SAB Workshops. However, I don't know if she was at the level to be offered a professional contract, and she seems to have some less-than-positive things to say about the ballet-school experience.

The Professional Children's School and the High School for The Performing Arts are two different schools. PCS is a private school, the High School for the Perfoming Arts is part of the NYC Public School System (I think).

Please forgive my cluelessness, but what might Ms. Carlton be seen or heard doing today?

Thanks. I seem to forever remain approximately 35 years behind the times when it comes to pop music.

Kim Darby ("True Grit", Star Trek and many other television appearances...I knew her as Derby Zerby)is the daughter of dancing parents. She danced in the San Francisco Bay Area as well as L.A. as a child. Also, Teri Garr ("Young Frankenstein" and many other films) danced ballet in the S.F.Bay Area before her film career was launched.

It was mentioned in the beginning of this thread that an actress from "Party of Five" danced in Canada. That would be Neve Campbell and she attended the National Ballet School of Canada. According to one fan site, injuries sidelined her first calling to dance - then she turned to acting.

I remember reading somewhere that she was taking it up again, but I can't find that reference now.

Ahallmark, Neve Campbell took up ballet again for her role in "The Company," directed by Robert Altman. Click here to see the relevant thread on criticaldance.com.

Iranian filmmaker Shirin Neshat:

Quote:
Iranian artist's work highlights fear and freedom

BY ELISA TURNER, Miami Herald

She is soft-spoken and slight, her lithe body sculpted by years of training in classical Indian dance, but she is tightly wound too. ''I feel constantly furious,'' says Iranian-born artist Shirin Neshat, ``but I try to be polite.'' <a href=http://www.miami.com/mld/miamiherald/entertainment/5454936.htm target=_blank>more</a>

Neshat's work is amazing. Her films have a very dancer like quality to them....and she definitely has the eye of a choreorapher. I really feel the field of video art often overlaps with video dance...as any arrangement of people and subjects can involve the art of choreography. Neshat's films are stunning, I highly recommend them.

Another film/video artist who used to be a dancer is Maya Derren (an active avant-garde filmmaker in the 1940s/50s). Orginially a European dancer, Derren's films are very fluid and movement based. Her film "Meshes of the Afternoon" is evidence of her background in dance.
