Ballerina ALERT 🚨 This week I started working on Ballo Della Regina with the one and only Merrill Ashley! 🤩 I can’t even begin to say how excited I am to have such a legend in the house! Getting to work with THE ballerina that George Balanchine himself created this ballet for, is like... ahhhhhhh! Ballerina dream heaven! So grateful that she came all the way to Denmark! 🇩🇰 - - Photo: @jonathan_chmelensky 😘 - - #inspired #ilovemerrillashley #merrillashley #balanchine #bellodellaregina #grateful #soexcited #livinglegendinthehouse #fangirl #tearsofjoy #blessed #thankful #unbelievable #amazing #freezetime #balanchineballerina #nycb #beautifulballerinas #muscletone #legmuscles #rdb #royaldanishballet

john_cliff26. When Merrill Ashley and Sean Lavery guested with my company in LA SOUR

When Merrill Ashley and Sean Lavery guested with my company in LA SOURCE. This was a rehearsal for the opening nite Gala of our “home” theater, THE BEVERLY, on Wilshire Blvd and Canon. Now that beautiful 1,400 seat Art Deco theater is a parking lot. Sigh. In that Gala was also Alicia Alonso and Jorge Esquivel, and Gelsey Kirkland and Frank Augustyn. At 5:00 that afternoon Frank called to say he was leaving because he just couldn’t/wouldn’t work with Gelsey. He ended up doing White Swan Pas with my youngest ballerina Ellen Bauer, and she did Ben Stevenson’s 3 PRELUDES (all 3 Movements) as a solo. I actually have a video of that bizarre performance. What a night!!! I had to close dancing RUBIES. Bette Midler and other star fans of our company were there...but all anyone could talk about was Gelsey’s “solo.” Such is life in the theater. @spappajohn13 @caroledharting @barnettserchuk @roman.julian.mejia @kurtfroman @michaelseanbreeden @deborahwaldpics @wendyriche @wendyw @garbaczluke @victoriabader @williamjamesearle #merrillashley #ballet #balanchine #nycb
