American, Serbian – Born in Phoenix AZ.
Education: Mystic Ballet Academy - Denise Lewis, Vladimir Putenko, Goran Subotic. Attended Miami City Ballet, The Harid Conservatory, and American Ballet Theatre Summer Programs on full scholarship.
His repertoire with Mystic Ballet includes works by Sidra Bell, Stephan Thoss, Jozsef Czaba Hajzer, Brian Enos, Sergei Vanaev, Lauren Edson, Gabrielle Lamb, Austin McCormick and Goran Subotic.
He earned critical praise for his performance in Mystic Ballet’s Swan Lake:
“Tall, regal and thundering with the conflicting emotions of the prince character, Aleksander Subotic commanded the stage with both an animal magnetism as well as the soaring, ethereal ideal of a man. Tender and attentive to his partner, Subotic displayed an adept command of artistic interpretation impressive for a young dancer.”
He performed a duet with Gabrielle Lamb in her own work Transit of Venus at Jacob’s Pillow in 2012.
Lamb paired with Aleksander Subotic for her haunting work titled “Transit of Venus.” The brief piece was a glimpse into something tantalizing, dreamily executed as if a mirage. The two dancers, both lean, tall and sinewy, were well-paired. – Dance critic Sharma Howard for The Day
He has performed throughout New England and internationally. In the summer of 2013 he returned to Jacob’s Pillow Inside/Out Series for 2 performances: Lauren Edson’s Imaginary Love and Sun & Steel, and in the lead role of Mystic Ballet’s performance of Sergei Vanaev’s Swan Lake, which concluded with a standing ovation.
