Flying High

FLYING HIGH:  If you live in Florida, then you're in luck.  But if you don't, then you can always admire the young men and women dancers of the Orlando Ballet from afar and wish them continued success as they bring a great holiday season of programming to their many fans -- including that favorite ballet of all time, The Nutcracker, in December.  Of interest is the fact that company includes dancers from the U.S. as well as Brazil, Mexico, Japan, Korea, Romania and the Ukraine -- and that graduates from the Orlando Ballet School have gone on to dance professionally with the Joffrey Ballet, American Ballet Theater, New York City Ballet, The Royal Danish Ballet and the Hamburg Ballet!  Amazing!  Shown here are some of the high-flying dancers of the Orlando Ballet including Balazs Krajczar (left), Telmo Moreira (top) and Stefan Drach (right).
