Great job today, Alexandra--fascinating presentation! Did any other Ballet Talkers attend?

Thank you very much;, Hans. I wish you'd come and said hello! I didn't see you (I can't see faces from the stage, except those in the first few rows.)

The audience had one thing in common with a group i had last year: they're not happy with the state of ballet today. That surprised me. Several ballet teachers and dancers came up to me afterwards but I think most of the people were long-time, very knowledgeable (from their questions) fans.

There's another one next month on "The Nutcracker" :) (And "Swan Lake" and "Sleeping Beauty" ini January and April.)

I plan to attend all of them. :) I am pretty shy in person, but I will try to work up the nerve to introduce myself next time.
