Dance All-Pros | Review | Tucson Weekly
Amanda McKerrow and John Gardner, artistic associates at the local company for the past year, have returned to American Ballet Theatre in New York this fall. As reported (and pictured) in The New York Times last month, the spouses are staging the classic 1975 Antony Tudor ballet The Leaves Are Fading on ABT's current dancers.
The pair frequently worked with Tudor in his glory days at ABT, a company the British-born choreographer helped found.
"They danced a lot of Tudor," says Ballet Tucson artistic director Mary-Beth Cabana. "He chose Amanda for a lot of his dances."
After all, the pair will be back in January, fresh from working with some of the world's top dancers, to help train the local company's own young performers. And McKerrow and Gardner have also brought work by Tudor back to the desert. Last winter, they staged his Continuo on Ballet Tucson. This March, it will be Little Improvisations.
A dozen or more years ago, Barker danced the title role in a traveling PNB production of Cinderella in Tucson, winning universal praise. She's a Balanchine-oriented dancer, so Cabana invited her as a counterbalance to the Tudor-steeped McKerrow and Gardner. (Balanchine was associated with New York City Ballet, rival of ABT.)

Sweet Choreography | Review | Tucson Weekly
This weekend, Antony Tudor, the great ballet choreographer, goes toe to toe against Mark Morris, the great modern choreographer, at opposite ends of the UA campus.
Tudor has been dead since 1987, but Ballet Tucson revives his 1937 "Dark Elegies" in its 13th Annual Dance and Dessert concert. The local pro ballet troupe has won deserved praise in recent years for re-stagings of Tudor's masterworks, an undertaking made possible by company artistic associates Amanda McKerrow and John Gardner. The two former American Ballet Theatre dancers worked closely with Tudor for years.
Over at Stevie Eller, Tudor's "Dark Elegies" deals with dark emotions, reflecting a world on the precipice of war. Like Morris' dances, this one is set to classical music, Gustav Mahler's Kindertotenlieder (Songs on the Death of Children), with lyrics by Friedrich Rückert.
The "ballet requiem" conjures up a community that has lost its children, and it careens from anguish to anger to acceptance. A group work for men and women, it has the women dancing on pointe, though some of its movements approach modern dance. Made two years before Tudor moved to the United States and joined ABT, "Dark Elegies" is said to have been his favorite ballet. Some critics consider it his best work.

Sweet Steps A dance by the late, great Antony Tudor highlights Ballet Tucson's 'Dance and Dessert'
Ballerina Amanda McKerrow worked for years with choreography great Antony Tudor when she was a young dancer at American Ballet Theatre. So did her husband, John Gardner.
"He influenced everything we did," McKerrow said last week in Tucson, where she and Gardner are setting Tudor's "Little Improvisations" on Ballet Tucson dancers for this weekend's Dance and Dessert concert.
Tudor is probably the only 20th-century ballet choreographer to rival George Balanchine. An Englishman who grew up in Cockney London, Tudor created psychologically revealing works, among them "Jardin aux Lilas" and "Dark Elegies." He helped found ABT in 1939 and was associated for much of his life with the company. Gardner started dancing with him there in 1978, McKerrow in 1982. Both worked with him until his sudden death at 79 in 1987.
This year is the centenary of Tudor's birth, and McKerrow and Gardner are busy traveling the country setting his works on different troupes.
"We work for the Antony Tudor Trust," she explained. "Only a few people are allowed to set his pieces."
Tudor's "Little Improvisations" will be a highlight of the annual Dance and Dessert concert, which pairs a program of short dances with a menu of fancy sweets contributed by local restaurants.
The duet, to be danced alternately by Erica Alvarado and César Rubio, and Aurora Frey and Isaac Sharratt, is "one of his more obscure pieces. It's intricate, but a simple little piece. Mr. Tudor called small works like this 'dance arrangements.'"
McKerrow and Gardner have a loose "artistic associate" relationship with the local professional company--last year, they set Tudor's "Continuo" on the dancers--and they'll be back in town in May to help with the major production of Cinderella.
"We're busy this season and next with the Tudor Trust," McKerrow said. "We haven't talked about next season yet" with Ballet Tucson.
Apart from "Little Improvisations," Dance and Dessert features a tasting menu of seven other dances, three of them contributed by guest artists. Balancing out the Tudor ballet is a modern dance by guest artist Kim Robards of Denver. Her troupe, the eponymous Kim Robards Dance, recently won a slot performing at the prestigious Joyce Theater in New York.

I discovered Chaco's because I frequent Mama Louisa's Italian Restaurant, which sits just south of the building that houses what was one of the most interesting combinations of eateries in all of Southern Arizona: Chaco's is in the middle of the building; Mabuhay Filipino Food Store is to the left; and to the right, until it closed a few months ago, was the Tudor Rose English Tea Room.

Modern Narratives | Review | Tucson Weekly
The pièce de résistance is Antony Tudor's "Fandango." Coming at the tail end of the Tudor centenary, the chamber ballet for five women gets its first airing at Ballet Tucson. The late Tudor, one of the 20th century's dance greats, choreographed "Fandango" in 1963 for the Metropolitan Opera Ballet. Set to music by 18th-century Spanish composer Padre Antonio Soler, it's set in a village plaza, where five señoritas engage in a furious dance competition.
