“Alonzo” showed the professional ballet ensemble at its best. Set to the deep, resonant beat of a taiko drum in music by Japanese New Age composer Kitaro, the work blended the grace of ballet with the athleticism of martial arts. Calvin Gentry’s technique stood out, though there’s more potential inside. Regine Meteyer’s authority continues to grow, enhancing her ethereal qualities; Laila Howard, a former student of Ballethnic, brings crisp exactitude and vigor to her paces. New this year is Indya Childs. In size and proportion, she fits alongside the other dancers; she carries a supple, muscular facility that’s naturally kinetic. Her pleasure is palpable."
