THE LONE RANGERS. After performing with the world's best ballet companies, Ángel Corella returned to his native Spain to form the country's sole classical ballet company in 2008. The company is set to perform several different pieces, ranging from a flamenco/ballet fusion to a meticulously choreographed work that illustrates the power and might of the European bullet train.

IN YEARBOOK-SPEAK, THEY'RE THE MOST LIKELY TO SUCCEED. Though it is still a relatively new company, Corella Ballet has already performed across Europe and the United States. Not only are they performing locally as part of Spoleto Festival USA, but they are also set to appear in Spoleto, Italy, this July.

THEY'RE TALL, DARK AND HANDSOME. OR BEAUTIFUL. Not only could Corella himself pass for a male model (à la his American Ballet Theatre peer and Natalie Portman baby daddy Benjamin Millepied), the members of his company are absolutely gorgeous. Their stunning Mediterranean tans put our pathetic pasty ones to shame. Maybe this is a sign that City Paper staffers need to make it to the beach more?
