I belong to a number of athletic groups, and the main issue is how to deal with the current Russian laws against any homosexual propaganda in respect to the Olympics.  I would love to open a discussion about if anyone has a feeling that this will play a part--or SHOULD play a part--in regards to watching current productions of Russian ballet, or of any dancers or people involved have discussed it?


For me, personally, it seems to reflect a dangerous precedent with Germany when it was unstable in the 1930s.  That may seem extreme, but I stand by that.

Discussions of religion and politics are off limits at Ballet Alert! unless they are germane to a ballet-related topic.   There are many places on the Internet where these topics are discussed and debated rigorously.
