One more thing about Jacobs: as Helene mentioned, she's married to James Wolcott, a heavily mannered writer himself. I'd love to be a fly on the wall when they read each other's stuff. :wink:

One thing about Jacobs' writing is that I think she spends too much time talking about what a dancer looks like, and not enough on how the dancer actually dances. Her descriptions on Part for example. It's a mistake Arlene Croce, for instance, never made. Good dance critics I think always give you an idea of how a dancer moved.

Absolutely! And say what you like about Osipova – she can certainly move.
