Last night at the New York City Ballet…...Stanley Taylor made his debut as “APOLLO”. He was a young God figuring out what he could do. He was elegant……forceful…..divinely cool. It was a brilliant debut.
He is not the conventional blond APOLLO that Chase Finlay was. Stanley has a sense of wildness under control……..abounding with energy.
Watch his video…..marvel at his technique…………ENJOY !
