Alexei Ratmansky on American and Russian Dancers

 “What I admire about New York City Ballet dancers is their rhythmic complexity. You can see all shades of rhythm in their bodies. With Russians, what you see is a melodic thread in their dancing, an upper-body expressiveness that brings out another side of the work. In ABT, the dancers have a bit of both. It’s good. I can play with that. – Alexei Ratmansky
