As part of Classical Week on America’s Dancing With The Stars, the season’s first “Macy’s Stars of Dance” performance featured three of the most famous ballet dancers in America today, though all three are Cuban. They danced a specially choreographed segment from “Swan Lake.”
Lorena and Lorna Feijoo, principles for the San Francisco Ballet and Boston Ballet, danced with José Manuel Carreño, of the American Ballet Theatre.
The Los Angeles Times quipped,
The Macy’s Stars of Dance performance was a real treat. Of course, they were capitalizing on the Oscar and box-office success of “Black Swan,” but I absolutely loved this rendition of “Swan Lake” created especially for “DWTS”…
… Love how the show has gotten so classy with the serious ballet pedigree, yet still maintains its fun-loving “DWTS” disposition with the audience cheering the dancers on. Hoity-toity and hoi polloi unite. Bravo to all!”
