In this post, I highlight the career of Houston Ballet Principal, Karina Gonzalez. Like Gabriela Montero, the renowned pianist whom I’ve written about in the past, Karina is from Venezuela.
Because I attend the ballet much less often than the symphony, I became aware of Karina through a car commercial! It seemed pretty random, but I was delighted to see another example of diversity in the Houston arts scene.
Check out these clips to see her seemingly effortless movement. So graceful! At the end I also include a nice interview with her from this summer. Enjoy and if you’re in Houston, see her live at the Houston Ballet! @HoustonBallet
