San Francisco Ballet is on tour to London, and the company?s new soloist, 18-year-old Royal Ballet School grad Nutnaree Pipithsuksunt, talks to the Independent:

?Before being signed up by San Francisco Ballet, she was offered contracts with Birmingham Royal Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Houston Ballet, Hamburg Ballet and La Scala Ballet. “I don’t know if that is lucky or not… I worked very hard. I didn’t audition as such for any of them. I went to New York to do some classes with the American Ballet Theatre, but when San Francisco Ballet – who had seen my end-of-term performance – wanted to see me again, I had to miss a week of school in London.”

Can?t wait to see this young woman come Nutcracker season. Thanks to Ballet Alert! for the link.
