Spring Showcase 2012 Performance Review
The Model,Critic Reviews Ellison Ballet
"...And there was more ! Closing the program was a thoroughly engaging " Gypsy Dance" from Don Quixote.
Music by Minkus, original choreography by Larisa Calero, and Gypsy Solo by Larisa Calero after Kasian Goleizovsky. This turned out to be the piece de resistance for the evening. What was good ? Everything! Lauren Archer, the music,sexy costumes ,big wild hair with the flowers, all added up to a true gypsy camp; like swans, you can never have too many gypsies. Everyone likes the myth of Gypsies. Lauren Archer danced with wild abandonment as she displayeda flexible, pliant and expressive body. The choreography sizzled, and the corps of fellow gypsies were wild and beautiful, as gypsies should be."
