NBC News has posted an article and lovely video interview with Stella Abrera. The video has some rare clips of her dancing, clips we never see from ABT.
The exquisite, gracious, enormously talented (and sadly under-utilized by ABT) corps de ballet dancer, Courtney Lavine, has officially been named by AVON as The Face of its new fragrance, Prima, which will debut in November. Congratulations to her and congratulations to AVON for choosing such an impeccably fine beauty and artist to join its team. Given AVON's huge presence in Russia, it should prove a boon to sales in that particular region to feature this beautiful dancer. This morning Allure Magazine launched a nice feature article online (this is for our friends at Ballet Alert - "ABT Fan" and other Lerts who use this blog as source material without attribution).
