привет, Stuttgart!

Elisa and I are in St. Petersburg to take part in this year’s Dance Open Festival at the renowned Alexandrinsky Theatre. The 17th edition combines ballet classics from different eras with a special focus on the late 20th century as well as Marius Petipa’s 200. birthday. We brought our own Stuttgart classic: A pas de deux from Cranko’s The Taming of the Shrew.

See you!
Jason and Elisa

Silingardi_Email aus NovaraHello Stuttgart Ballet friends,

On Saturday, 7th of April, I had the huge honor of being invited to perform at the10th year anniversary gala of Novara in Danza. It was a very memorable evening as at the end of the gala I was awarded with a very prestigious prize, Etolie di Domani. Having gone through the experience of the competition myself, it was extremely rewarding to return there as a professional dancer and to be awarded this prize. A huge thank you to Barbara Gatto, the organizer of the Gala and competition, for having me.

Alicia Amatriain during the award ceremony for El Ojo Crítico

Dear friends in Stuttgart,

last night was a really special one to me :)) I received the critics award El Ojo Crítico 2017. Every award is something special, but to receive this one in my home country Spain meant a lot to me. Short and sweet, see you all soon!

Greetings from Madrid

Oh, and ps: I’m wearing a dress from my own collection – #AA

Hello from Oslo!

Right now I am rehearsing for Onegin – I have performances on Friday and next Tuesday and I can’t wait to dance them. It has been great to be here in Oslo, I really enjoy it. They have a beautiful, modern theater and the company and people are very sweet, nice and friendly. I made a lot of new friends! :-) On the other side, I am staying here for quite a long time, so can’t wait to come back to Stuttgart to see my family – Miriam and Lucas (who turned one year yesterday) and also the company and the people and start to work on my piece for The Fab Five again. :-) :-)

See you all soon.

Jason Reilly as Onegin, Yolanda Correra as Tatjana and Roman Novitzky


Hei // Hi Stuttgart!

I’m currently enjoying the snowy north – with sub-zero temperatures outside, Roman and I are guesting with the Norwegian Nasjonal Balletten in John Crankos Onegin. After long days of rehearsing in the past week, I danced my first performance this past Saturday. The next one is on February 1st, and then Roman will take over the role of Onegin. This snapshot was taken right after Saturday’s performance, with my dance partner Yolanda Correra, who danced a wonderful Tatjana, and Roman.
