I suppose it makes sense that an audience can get close to a dancer they’ve never met in person. Some dancers share so much more than the steps with the audience. Noelani Pantastico was definitely one of those kinds of dancers at PNB, before she left in 2008. I don’t think a single PNB rep passed last season without somebody I know saying: I miss Noe!
Pantastico writes occasionally for The Winger. Here’s her latest post…an interesting summary of what she’s been up to at the Ballets de Monte Carlo.
Those lucky people in Monte Carlo! In addition to the Mediterranean sunshine outside the theater all year long, they’re hogging Pantastico’s particular brand of sunshine inside. I wish we could get on their tour list somehow. In the meantime, enjoy Pantastico’s blog…
