Captivating Carla Körbes

The only thing I dislike about gorgeous ballerina Carla Körbes is that she doesn’t live in NYC, where I could see her all the time. Yes, fine, the Pacific Northwest Ballet principal will be visiting the Big Apple next week, when PNB comes to New York City Center. But I think getting that little taste of her onstage is only going to make me miss her more once she heads back to Seattle.

That’s why I was especially happy to stumble upon PASSAGE: Carla Körbes, Portrait of a Ballerina this morning. Directed by photographer Patrick Fraser, it’s a glorious five-minute montage of slow-motion dance footage, showing off Carla’s perfect technique in exquisite detail. Saut de chats, tour jetés and chaînes have never looked so poetic. (Also, her flowing locks are to die [dye?] for.)

Take a look!
