Is this Christine Knoblach, formerly National Ballet (I didn't see her, but remember reading the name) and then ABT? Changed her name because Tudor said it meant garlic? :) She left ABT years ago; haven't heard anything of her since.

Just met her two weeks ago in St. Louis. She is the head of a dance department at a college.

I admired her when I was a student of Mary Day's who attended National Ballet of Washington performances.

must be! i remember that she came to chicago, i think as a guest, during ben stevenson's brief tenure there before houston. knoblauch does mean garlic in german, i wonder if she's related to the yankee left fielder? :)

Hi everyone!

Christine O'neal on the faculty in the dance department at Washington University in St. Louis. She teaches most of the ballet classes for dance majors/minors, and an intro to ballet class for nonmajors (which I took and loved). She was a great teacher...though I've heard from friends who took her upper level ballet classes that she's a tough grader. She does choreography for the annual faculty showcase and for student productions (both dance and musicals staged by the drama department).
