Joffrey Ballet performed "Rite of Spring" in Los Angeles:

The celebration of the “Rites” has begun.

“The Rite of Spring” (Le Sacre du Printemps) is the revolutionary 1913 ballet by choreographer Vaslav Nijinsky, composer Igor Stravinsky and artist Nicholas Roerich that clamorously heralded a new age for dance, music and all the arts. The L.A. Music Center and others will spend many months this year marking the 100[size="2"]th[/size] anniversary of this 36-minute Ballets Russes juggernaut, which debuted in scandale and now resides secure in the canon. The route from notoriety to eminence may seem random, yet is ever-predictable.

The founder of Britain's first dance injury center has passed away:

Howse was able to restrain his patients from premature returns to the stage. A recovering Judi Dench, for example, pulled out of the starring role of Grizabella in the original 1981 production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats on his advice. He also refused to perform a risky operation that Margot Fonteyn requested on an injury, saying he did not wish to be known as the surgeon who ended the ballerina’s career.
