Dancers laid off
Posted 01 March 2003 - 01:24 PM
Apparently, they will not be leaving immediately, but at the end of the season. They will be missed.

(It seems the dancers' contracts aren't being renewed for the next season, not that they're being fired on the spot. This often happens for a variety of reasons, including a good dancer who is no longer able to perform for reasons of age or injury.)

seems that corporate America's pink slips have trickled over into the artistic world

I don't know what I can say except it makes me feel sad.... i really feel for the dancers right now, and don't want to say anything that could be taken wrong. I will say, I feel it most with Maynard, since he's refined himself so remarkably since he came here, and become not only a spectacular showman but also a dancer who can LAND as softly as he can jump high. ANd added depths of artistry in characterization -- he was the most poetic of all the Albrechts I saw.... I was really moved by his performance.

The Boada firing is shocking
and now, after years of rarely performing but drawing a paycheck he gets canned.
So how then is that shocking? Do you think any non-profit organization (or for profit for that matter) can really afford to keep anyone one the payroll if they aren't actually doing their job????? The current (arts) econonmy simply can't afford that kind of action.
I will miss Maynard greatly.

My sympathies go out to the dismissed dancers, and I wish them the best. Very sorry to see Parrish Maynard go, especially. This may be reflective – unhappily so -- of the depth of the bench on the men's side that we see in the company right now.
