I cannot believe another year has nearly flown by. We are two days away from 2018, and I have a long list of things to be thankful for from this past year. From the performances I was able to be a part of, to the touring I did, to my promotion to Soloist with ABT, the numerous experiences I had both on and off stage, and love I've received from so many of you. Life has truly been wonderful these last twelve months. As I look ahead on the new year, I dream, hope, and desire to grow and learn as much as I can. I want to do more private coaching for roles that I have coming up, and roles I still aspire to dance one day. I want to give back in some way either through teaching or community service. I would love to travel to a part of the world I've never been before. I will try my best to find balance and staying focused on whatever I'm working on at that moment. I reach out my arms and heart to all that lies ahead of me. Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season and a Happy and Healthy New Year!!!

Hi All!

So here we are, another fall. The year is flying by so quickly. Its had its highs and lows, but overall I can say I've learned a lot and have grown so much. Rewinding a bit, I had an incredibly nature filled summer after my Spring Season with ABT at the Met. After a couple shows with my friend Gemma Bond at the Joyce Theater,  I was off to Vail Colorado, and Sun Valley Idaho, both of which were beautiful and picturesque. Once the performances came to a close, I spent two weeks on a break in California with my love, and I'm currently back to rehearsals at the ABT studios for my Fall Season performances at Lincoln Center. The opening is right around the corner, and I have a full list of ballets that I'm really excited to dance. A new creation by Alexei Ratmansky titled "Songs of Bukovina" set to a series of preludes by composer Leonid Desyatnikov, the return of Alexei Ratmansky's "Serenade After Plato's Symposium", I'll reprise my roles in Frederick Ashton's "Symphonic Variations" and Jessica Lang's "Her Notes", and join the first cast in Benjamin Millepied's "Daphnis and Chloe".

I'm thrilled to be back on stage here in New York. From the moment the first curtain rises on the season to the final bow, it'll be really special to be out there doing what I love, and what makes me feel the most free.  A feeling I'll get to experience night after night as I share with the world the gift of dance. I hope you'll join me! Casting and ticket info are in the CALENDAR section of the site. See you there! xCalvin

It's been awhile since my last post here. Apologies. Initially when I created this page, I wanted to keep a more up to date running log of things that are happening, but in reality it's been busy to say the least, and I spend so little time on my computer these days... Since the season at the Met with ABT ended, I've been on the move. I'm still buzzing from my recent promotion to Soloist with the company I've been apart of now for over 6 years. It's a new chapter and new day to go out and explore.  I had time to work and perform with my dear friend Gemma Bond at the iconic Joyce Theater and the Vail International Dance Festival. I've been feeling pretty overwhelmed by all of the energy surrounding me honestly, but I find myself enjoying the simple day to day moments more and more. The feeling I have inside is truly indescribable, and I am so thankful for all the blessings that are taking place...
