Dan Miller from Fort Lauderdale
ODESSA BALLET, IN FORT LAUDERDALE
This is a third rate ballet company, unfortunately. The training of the dancers, their competency, and the choreography are all far below American and international high standards. Only two female dancers, in the roles of Aurora and Good Fairy/Lilac Fairy, were good, and their choreography was very rudimentary. In the entire first act, there were no male dancers; there were several walk-on males for scenery. The ballerinas were supported by female dancers of the corps. The music is recorded from different sources and sometimes a piano replaces the orchestra; it is disconcerting. The steps the dancers performed are very basic and simple, and were always repeated three or four times, as a first-time choreographer might do. I have never seen such dirty shoes, on both females and males; they obviously do not change very often. In the second act, of four male dancers, two could not place their feet in first position. Sad and sorry. There were many colorful costumes.
