There are two guidelines for performance reviews and comments:
- *Please use a single thread for each week (ex: NYCB Spring Season, Week Two), program (ex: Royal Ballet Sleeping Beauty) event (ex: Fall for Dance), and if a company is performing on tour or a special venue, please tell us where in the title or subtitle (ex: Bolshoi Ballet, Bright Stream (London)).
*Please use dancers's last (or first and last) names in reviews. I've received a lot of feedback that there's a lot of interest in trying to follow non-local companies, but it's difficult when first names are used. There are also generational associations with names; for me, I immediately associate the name "Ashley" with "Merrill," not "Bouder" (whom I love), and when they're in the same performance of Sleeping Beauty...
Think of this as an opportunity to learn how to spell Nina Ananiashvili's last name (which took me ages)
