Dance Magazine honors Beckanne Sisk

Congratulations to Soloist Beckanne Sisk for earning recognition from Dance Magazine for Best Revival this year for her “tantalizing performance” in “Light Rain.” Wendy Perron of Dance Magazine wrote, “The central duet of Light Rain was given a tantalizing performance by Ballet West’s Beckanne Sisk and the Joffrey’s Fabrice Calmels at a YAGP gala. It took us back to the sex-drugs-and-percussion haze of the ’60s as envisioned by Gerald Arpino in 1981. The ballet was a hit for the Joffrey in the ’80s but fell out of favor, so this was a welcome, if controversial (some thought it vulgar or acrobatic) pas de deux.”
