International students shine.
Students from the New National Theatre, Tokyo, Young Artists Training Program stood out as exceptionally precise in Maki Asami's Sinfonietta. The men from The Royal Ballet School and Royal Danish School of Ballet were stunning, particularly Alban Lendorf-Thim of the latter.
For audiences, seeing this spectrum of new talent was a rare gift. For the dancers, the chance to perform with international peers at a world-renowned opera house was undoubtedly a formative moment in their budding careers. Hopefully, this occasion will become an annual event. If it does, it would be interesting to see American dancers from training grounds like School of American Ballet or The Harid Conservatory.
