Helen Pickett's Rave Reviews!

Peridance would like to thank Helen Pickett who recently conducted a successful workshop in Forsythe-based Improvisation.

Helen performed with William Forsythe's Ballet Frankfurt for over a decade, becoming a principal in 1991. Currently, she teaches Forsythe-based improvisation throughout the United States and Europe and choreographs works for many of America's leading ballet companies, such as Boston Ballet, Washington Ballet, Louisville Ballet, and Aspen Santa Fe Ballet.

We also congratulate Helen on the outstanding reviews she received for her piece Tsukiyo which the Boston Ballet premiered in October.

Here's what the critics had to say:

"Pickett’s language is profound, fluid and intimate." -Keith Powers, Boston Herald

"The beautiful choreography was exquisitely performed and created a powerful piece that stayed with the audience long after the curtain closed." -Shannon Brown, The Simmons Voice

"Helen Pickett’s world premiere, 'Tsukiyo,' with music by Arvo Part, [is] one of the most distinctive works to now join the troupe’s repertory." -Iris Fanger, Patriot Ledger

Thanks again, Helen and congrats!
