The Dancer to Beat

 Teresa Reichlen, a soloist at New York City Ballet, is featured in today’s NY Times in an article that discusses her career, growth as a dancer, and of course, her height (The article also mentions that she’s a student at Barnard!). Reichlen has been on the rise for a while, and the article correctly points out that she has found a place for herself among some of today’s finest City Ballet dancers. Her dancing in Balanchine’s “The Four Temperaments” during NYCB’s Saratoga season last July blew me away, and she certainly stood out for her performance with Morphoses at City Center this past fall. I’m looking forward to seeing what the NYCB winter season has in store for her. For starters, she’ll be dancing the “statuesque sexpot” role (the words of Ms. Kourlas) in the “Rubies” section of Balanchine’s “Jewels” this weekend. Read the article here.
