She's saying among others things, and I don't know if I should have a good laugh or be crying:

"Today, modern dance is often put forward and one forget there is a classical technic, it's even becoming exotic" :helpsmilie: .

From what I've seen in Paris during Ms Lefevre's directorship, I would imagine that she has little regard for classical technique

Well, how do you say "c'est l'hôpital qui se moque de la charité" in English ?

I'm always amazed by the complete lack of logic between what Ms Lefèvre says and whay she actually does.

Well, you can say
"the pot calling the kettle black" or "people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones?"

I really wonder what she has in her head. I even wonder if these words are really hers!
