Laying here amongst all the stories. The ones …

Laying here amongst all the stories. The ones they’ve helped to tell and the ones they hold. However disposable they might feel or however fleeting they might be, I get to know each pair…  sometimes in seconds we’re flying and sometimes it’s a constant battle. Once they’ve been on stage they’re never the same again. Worn, stained, melted, scratched, roughened, mushy and uneven. Always needing them, treasuring them and yet always putting them to one side into the used pile. An endless cycle. These extensions of my legs provide an extra sensation… like no other. Oh and I love the smell of the satin and the glue and the wood. And the texture of the ribbon on my skin and the elastic and drawstring slightly digging in. These are my shoes. – Lauren Cuthbertson

Sterling Hyltin and Amar Ramasar in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, New York City Ballet, May 2015. © Paul Kolnik.

Hyltin and Ramasar, débuting as the divertissement couple, were resplendent; Hyltin’s ability to shape movement, concealing the mechanics behind it, is one of her supreme talents, as is her courage: her dancing is never timid. With the aid Ramasar’s elegant, unobtrusive partnering, she unfolded into one limpid shape after another with ease and charm. Ramasar danced with musicality and joy.
