  • Sir Paul McCartney's Pas de Deux with NYCB

    7292962_paulmaccartney_240As we first mentioned back in June, the former Beatle was tapped to score an "unnamed" ballet for an "unnamed" ballet company. Well, the cat's been let out of the bag!

    The name of the ballet is "Ocean's Kingdom" and it's created especially for New York City Ballet. "Sir Paul has been working closely with Peter Martins, the company's ballet master-in-chief, who will choreograph the show. Martins said the idea of a collaboration struck him when he bumped in to the Beatle at a fund-raiser for the School of American Ballet (the training ground for the NYCB) last year: "I knew, of course, about his foray into classical music and his interest in it. I said to him, 'Maybe we could do something together,'" McCartney took him up on the idea, and the stage was set for a unique collaboration."

  • Working Mother Magazine Interviews NYCB's Jenifer Ringer

    What an amazing article featuring "real working mother" Jenifer Ringer, principal dancer with New York City Ballet.

    JeniferRingerIt’s 7:58 p.m., and the high-stakes part of Jenifer Ringer’s workday is about to begin. As she hovers in the wings of the David H. Koch Theater in New York City’s Lincoln Center, about to present herself to an audience of thousands, the raven-haired, classically beautiful dancer calms and centers herself in a way most ballerinas can’t. “I picture my daughter, Grace, all curled up asleep in her bed,” she says. “Compared to that, all this doesn’t seem so big. Becoming a mom has definitely changed things for me.” ~ Working Mother.com

    You can read the full article here. If possible, leave a comment when you're finished. There seems to be a bit of "controversy" going on as to whether or not dancers are "real" working mothers or not. ;-)

    From the Wall Street Journal, "New York City Ballet's new marketing campaign features a relaxed, casually sexy aesthetic that represents a radical image overhaul for the company, part of its most significant effort yet to appeal to the younger New Yorkers it hopes will become future patrons."
