lost in motion

He should have been undistinguished in the plain gray jogging suit, but he wasn't. 
Ruth, despite her youth,recognized that certain men could never be ordinary. 
Some drew notice without effort. 
It was more than
his face and physique, it was his aura.



Guillaume Côté is a man able to fly. This dancer born in Lac-Saint-Jean, Quebec attended the National Ballet School of Canada and thirteen years ago joined the company. His technique and ability to communicate on stage are such that it is able to leave the viewer breathless.

Earlier this year, the National Ballet of Canada chose Côté as the star of a video clip to promote the dance company in the world and especially in the World Wide Web.



Nikolai Davidov's leaps were like no one else's. He would spring as if propelled, then pause and hang
impossibly suspended before descending. His body was as fluid as a waterfall, as taut as a bow string.
He had only to command it. And there was more, Ruth knew, just as mesmerized by him as she had
been the first time she'd seen him perform; there was his precision timing, his strength and endurance.
And he could act—an essential part of ballet. His face was as expressive as his body.

Dance of Dreams
