   Has anyone ever seen Ari Takahashi of the Scottish Ballet? If so, I would like to hear some reviews/comments.
Thanks!

   Some readers might well respond but as a first cut it seems we have links to 12 reviews that mention Takahshi.

To find these you need to use the Advanced Search of Reviews feature. The menu for this (along with interviews and otehr stuff) is in our Links section. For speed this link brings up the Advanced Search page:

http://www.ballet.co.uk/cgi/reviews_database_search/db_search.cgi

But in 'Scottish' for the company and 'Takahashi' as the dancer....

   I've just had a quick look at the reviews above - not a bad word about Ari among them - and lots of good ones.

I've seen her in just about all of SBs productions over the past 2 or 3 years, and consider her to be ( increasingly ) one of the best things about SB. She has a lovely line and great musicality and gives the impression of being at home with every role so far.

It's good to see her getting to do the principle roles now. Unfortunately I missed her Giselle, instead seeing Nicci Theis in the role, completely outshone in Act 1 by Ari as one of the villagers.

I know she's dancing Juliet in June, - at least SB are using Fulvio Faudella and her in their promotional shots, - but catching her performances is a hit or miss affair as SB still don't give any casting info ahead of time.

Why the interest Terry ?

   Yes, I saw her in Hoffman dancing the part of the automaton Olympia. She danced with great precision and lovely comic timing. She's an absolute delight. I believe she is still only an Artist with the company. This is a disgrace - as Carly said, she's far better than certain others in more senior positions.

   Thanks for all your replies!
Well, I suddenly became very interested in her because she's making her first appearance as a principal at the New National Ballet Theater in Tokyo. She'll be dancing Swan Lake. I'd never really heard of her before in Japan (obviously because she's been dancing at SB) so I was just curious...Well, it'll be interesting to watch her
then! Perhaps she'll be the next Miyako?!

   I was impressed with the little I saw of her at Sadler's Wells, and I know Jenny rates her very highly.

   Sounds good for Ari and not so good for Scottish Ballet - I wonder how much longer she'll stay.
Let us know how things go in Tokyo.
