Moves like Jagger: Mick's partner debuts Stones-themed dance

Combined Shape

NEW YORK (AP) — Talk about your “Moves Like Jagger.” The recovering rocker made a stealth appearance at the ballet, slipping backstage Thursday evening to support his partner, Melanie Hamrick, as she presented her new dance based on Rolling Stones songs.

It was Hamrick’s first work as choreographer. Jagger arranged the score of three Stones classics: “Sympathy for the Devil,” ”She’s a Rainbow,” and “Paint it Black.” Hamrick created the ballet for the 20th anniversary of Youth America Grand Prix, the world’s largest ballet scholarship competition.

Jagger didn’t appear onstage or in the audience. But he did greet the crowd at New York’s Lincoln Center via a backstage microphone.

The 75-year-old rocker recently underwent medical treatment, reportedly for a heart valve issue, forcing postponement of the Stones’ No Filter tour.
