Daniel Ulbricht, a principal dancer with New York City Ballet, isn’t content to sit on a beach during his summer break. “I look at breaks as scary,” he said. “Dancers want to dance.” Ulbricht’s solution? Stars of American Ballet, a group of world-class dancers from NYCB and American Ballet Theater, whom Ulbricht directs and choreographs in summer shows. Ulbricht is also gaining a reputation as a teacher and will lead a class at the National Dance Institute while in Santa Fe. Stars of American Ballet will take the stage at the Lensic Performing Arts Center on Wednesday, Aug. 10, and Thursday, Aug. 11. On the cover are Ulbricht and Jeffrey Cirio; photo Christopher Duggan.
