Dance critic Sharma Howard described his Swan Lake performance as “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. He has performed in New York at APAP 2013 and 2014. 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 Sergei Vanaev’s Swan Lake, which concluded with a standing ovation.
