I love his stuff. I'm glad I hoarded his candles, now that he's focused on skin care
It's got to be a lot easier to sell from a store rather than having to ship everything individually, plus there's the walk-in business.

I am listening to the Balancing Pointe podcast with Ellen Bar, Part 1, and at about the 18-minute mark on the iTunes download, Bar talks about knowing Jordan Pacitti from the SAB dorms and about his interest in fragrance back then:

The Whim W'him blog currently features a multi-part series about founder Olivier Wevers. The current post in an ongoing series describes why he left Belgium and how he got from Europe to Pittsburgh to Columbia City Ballet to Royal Winnipeg Ballet to Pacific Northwest Ballet:

This is coming off a summer where he was one of the four choreographers chosen for the National Choreographers Initiative and presented his new work, "Distinct Perceptions" at the NCI public performance. Here are some photos:
Congratulations, Barry, and welcome back to this side of the Rockies!

Excellent news for him -- I hope it's a great fit for all concerned.

I hate to throw cold water, and I admit I don't know how old Barry is, but I assume that being a director means that Barry won't be dancing a lot. Surely this is a good move for him personally or he wouldn't have done it, but I always loved the way Barry danced at PNB. He seems young enough to have a whole lot of dance still in him. He always stood out among the men to my eyes. I was very sad when he left PNB.

Heads-up -- PNB alum Jennifer Porter is making a new version of Firebird (contemporary setting, no Slavic references) for Ballet Bellevue (Meydenbauer Center, October 10-12), featuring live music. And Olivier Wevers' Whim W'him company will be guesting on the program, with his version of Les Sylphides, so it's kind of a Ballet Russe revision.

From today's Links, between the eight regularly scheduled performances of Grand Rapids Ballet's new "Nutcracker," the private gala (which raised $500K, split with Hospice of Michigan's Pediatric program), according to a linked article in this one, and 4000 school children who saw it, at least 21K people saw the new production, which will tour next season. Choreography was by Val Caniparoli, designs by children's author Chris Van Allsburg, Eugene Lee, and Patricia Barker (costumes).
Congratulations to Barker and the company!
At this rate, Barker is amassing more actual experience running a company than the vast majority of AD's in North America had taking over a mid- to large-size company.
