  1. Mist Copeland appeared on NPR's "Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!" and was quizzed on Morris Dancing. http://www.npr.org/2014/04/26/306545450/not-my-job-ballerina-misty-copeland-gets-quizzed-on-morris-dancing
  2. Volumes 1 and 2 are now available at Amazon.com.
  3. A season of Balanchine's NYCB in the 1950's. Not sure about the specific year.
  4. Its an interesting idea. A ballet draft would gain mention in the news outlets. The publicity would enhance interest.
  5. Any chance it will be reprinted?
  6. I purchased that DVD with the same goal of learning the names of the steps. I barely remember any of them because each basic step seemed to have a dozen minor variations. No fault of the DVD.
  7. What are you reading the board on? Firefox. The font and contrast have improved.
  8. Is there a way to adjust the display width (or number of columns)? To read a post I have to either use the horizontal scroll bar for each line or reduce the font size.
  9. Jewels is now available at US Amazon.com
  10. I would prefer to support the dancers except there is no apparent way to earmark donations. Maybe there is a non-company specific charity that benefits dancers. Union bashing is all the rage these days, but not for me.
  11. Locking out the dancers is harsh and heavy handed. Although I recently sent Joffrey a donation now I'll reconsider my level of support for next year.
  12. It is almost available at Amazon.com, Sylphides / Giselle
  13. Selling tickets 14 months before the performance is surprising to me. Is this a record lead time?
  14. Ballet's Magic Kingdom by Akim Volynsky is an interesting book and well worth reading.
