A YOUNG GOD • Stanley Taylor as APOLLO

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 !
