It's All About Alys

February 16, 2013

A year or so ago, Dance Spirit associate editor Margaret Fuhrer came into the office raving about this ballerina she’d seen. We all tuned in as Margaret, our resident ballet guru, went on about Alys Shee.

Lithe, lovely—and young, just 15 years old—Alys Shee, was dancing with American Ballet Theatre’s second company, ABT II, at the time.

Now, Alys (pronounced “Alice”) is on the cover of our annual Ballet Issue!

The 17-year-old is overseas these days, dancing with the Birmingham Royal Ballet. And that sweet young thing Margaret first spotted years ago? Now she’s a full-blown star, making her mark on the dance world—and the online world! Surely you’ve seen Alys showing off dozens of fouettés on YouTube, right?

in the March issue, and be sure to grab your own copy, on newsstands now—you’ll want to rip these photos out and hang ’em up for inspiration!
