Also -- I do know of at least one dancer who has been let go. But until it is published somewhere I won't give the name. I hope it's okay for me to say this, since I haven't specified the dancer.

The dancers, in my opinion, have danced remarkably well this past year, and I hate the thought of no one going to see them simply because the ballets being danced are not of interest.
You read my thoughts exactly, Pugbee. I'm only truly interested in seeing Giselle and the Lifar piece.
It was published in the Chronicle that Julie Gumbinner and Lucas Priolo will be leaving for Texas Ballet Theatre, and I do know of a few others who are also leaving, although it hasn't been let out to the public yet.

Yep, I listened to a radio interview with Broomhead that he is retiring. It's certainly a gain for the artistic staff; he has been doing a lot of coaching this season, and I hear he's a great teacher.

** I wish the season for next year was different, but the only thing I am looking forward to seeing is Christopher Bruces piece. After seeing Ghost Dances I have fallen in love with his choreography and movement.

I once heard Phillip say that, when he arrived at the Royal Ballet School, he wasn't very flexible, so he stretched everyday. It must have worked, because I remember his extension, and HEARING his leg hit the back of his head mid-cabriole from several rows back at Covent Garden.
I would love to see him teach, but I think it's unlikely. I've being trying to arrange a secondment to Houston from work, but it's not going to happen; all I've managed is an invitation to Albania!
