Ballet Alert! Mission:

"To be a place for civilized discussion about classical ballet"


We are not the lobby.


Our rules are in place to support this mission (and to comply with copyright law) and further the discussion. Aside from specific posts, there is one critical policy that takes context and posting history into consideration: No agendas. We don't have a problem with criticism or strong voices, nor do we have control over whether people back off from either; however,

If you want to be:

  • The final word on a dancer, company, academy, or the overall subject of ballet, good or bad
  • A way to drum up internet traffic for a dancer,
  • The voice that must make negative comparisons repeatedly to bolster a dancer or theory and/or become the living incarnation of deja-vu-all-over-again, and/or
  • A claque leader or member,

get a blog. We'll probably read you. Just not here.
