Dance critic, Sharma Howard – The DAY, 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.
” 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. – Sharma Howard for The Day.
