Ballet.co is "moving to archive"

Yet, as Natalia pointed out, reality of sheer economics play a part. I know that BalletCo had get togethers in London - never unfortunately attended a single one, why? Well, traveling to London, cost of hotel and meals, not to mention tickets for RB performances just made it too expensive for me.
Probably I come across as totally embittered, which in a way is true, but my local company does nothing but modern, TV doesnt know what the word ballet stands for - result: I am now reduced to staring at bits and pieces at Youtube.
So BalletAlert is a shining light in my life - one can keep track of what happens in the ballet world everywhere. Moderators and posters, you all have my very heartfelt thanks for just being out there - cant really say how much I appreciate all of you!

We have had thousands of members over the years who have done nothing but read "Links" and have never contributed to the discussion or financially, and probably more hits in a day to "Links" than to the rest of the forums combined many weeks.
Yes, indeed, we do!!!!!
People are conditioned to pay little or nothing for what they get on the internet. Many of the publications whose articles we link to face the same difficulty.
It's not surprising that time isn't standing still and other forms of social communication are becoming popular. I do think that sites like ours and Ballet.co offer something special and it would be nice if others felt the same way.
That's right. And people's personal circumstances change and it gets harder to put in so much work.

DanceTabs is just going to be a magazine – no forum, no TodaysLinks (and its huge attendant database) – just Reviews, Galleries, Interviews and News items. The contributors will largely be names you know already and to which I look to add - I continue to want it to take a world view. It will use technology similar to the Balletco redesign but will be hosted in specialist space I don’t have to worry so much about. The gallery area will be hosted differently. Time is short – the launch will be in early February and while I would like to do different designs I may just use the recent Balletco ones with a few light modifications.

Occasional Dance Links - Features, Previews, Reviews, etc
"A place for links to (hopefully) interesting articles, reviews and the like from across the global English-language press - but deliberately less comprehensive (and rather later in the day) than the "Today's Links" of old. Others are allowed to participate........."
edited a few hours later: they have changed the thread to a forum:
"This thread can now be considered closed to new messages as Bruce has opened up a new forum titled Dance Links - reviews & features in which to post links."
