To use biblical language, Tyler Angle did beget Tiler Peck, nor did Justin Peck beget Jared Angle.The Angles and one Peck (Tiler) — a bushel and a peck?Still, their mom loved musicals, and by 4 1/2 , Megan was tap-dancing around the house. She started taking lessons and her little brother, who still looks up to her — though he’s now 6 feet and she, 5-foot-3 — followed suit. I’d never seen ballet of this caliber and such powerful and amazing male dancers, mainly Peter Boal, because he was my teacher during the day and I’d go to see him perform at night.Ten years ago, Megan Fairchild splurged on a box set of four Gene Kelly musicals. Yet here they are — Megan, strutting her stuff as Miss Turnstiles in “On the Town,” which opened in October to raves, and Robert, in the Gene Kelly role of the ex-GI in the Gershwin musical, “An American in Paris,” starting previews on Friday. According to a statement from his publishers, Hallberg has written about everything from his pre-ABT days to his early New York fame, his acclaim at the Bolshoi Ballet, his devastating injury and—the cherry on top—his triumphant return to dance. , will be released November 7 by Touchstone, an imprint of Simon & Schuster.

Before beginning the biographical and question and answer portion of my interview with New York City Ballet’s superb and sublime principal dancer Tiler Peck, let’s get any Abbott & Costello “who’s on first” confusion out of the way.At the age of 12, she moved to New York and entered the School of American Ballet, the official school of the NYCB for most of the 2000-2001 Winter Term.Somehow, before she formally began SAB she also found time to act in “Donnie Darko,” Richard Kelly’s cult classic with another brother-sister team: Jake & Maggie Gyllenhaal and a plethora of young actors about to step into larger roles: Seth Rogen, Jena Malone, Noah Wylie and Drew Barrymore.Peck was also about to step into a larger role, although on a much different, more rarefied stage.You probably remember that New York City Ballet principals Tiler Peck and Robert Fairchild got married earlier this year.
