Here's a lovely NBC News online piece about our Stella Abrera. She talks about how she was a complete bunhead at an early age, injuries, and achieving principal designation at a late age. Haglund remembers when Stella first showed up at David Howard's studio on West 61st Street when she was 16 or 17 years old. David adored her for more reasons than just her pink tights (with feet in them) worn underneath the leotard and barre work so pristine-disciplined that it made everyone else look like junk jewelry. Bunhead - oh yeah.
Georgina Pazcoguin is going to knock it out of the ballpark as Ivy in On the Town over the next couple of weeks. What a perfect match of role and artist. We have to wonder if she might also be able to manage a French accent at a later date.
