BEST DANCER

PEGGY BAKER

NOW Magazine - Best of Toronto - - Stage -

There are so many good dancers in the city that it’s hard to sin­gle out just one. The Na­tional Ballet has the ver­sa­tile Guil­laume Côté, the ath­letic Jen­nifer Fournier and the in­stinc­tively dra­matic Xiao Nan Yu. The whole com­pany at Toronto Dance Theatre is ex­cit­ing, and we’re the first at any show fea­tur­ing Kate Al­ton, Yvonne Ng, Daryl Tracy and Sasha Ivanochko. But Peggy Baker com­mu­ni­cates so much with ev­ery inch of her leg­en­dar­ily long arms, it’s hard to take your eyes off her. Never mind that she’s over 50 in a pro­fes­sion that loves youth. She gets more in­ter­est­ing with each per­for­mance.
