Clement Crisp reviews the ballet Jane Eyre:

A declaration of interest is the decent thing. But how to qualify a massive lack of interest in Jane Eyre, which I found of raging tedium as a novel, and – lackaday – as a danced staging with which the Shanghai Ballet chose to make its London debut?

Alastair Macaulay reviews Wendy Whelan at Jacob's Pillow:

 

http://www.nytimes.c...obs-pillow.html

 

Entering the world of modern dance, as she does in her program “Restless Creature,” Wendy Whelan exhibits the same qualities of temperament she has shown for years as a principal dancer of New York City Ballet: She’s uncompromising, generous, bold, enthusiastic, adult, at the same time decisive and investigative. Few dancers in any genre show better that a work should be a process of self-discovery.

An obituary for David Howard  by Margalit Fox in The New York Times.

 

By genial choice, Mr. Howard took on a vast spectrum of students. He taught children, held evening classes for weary adult beginners, coached dancers in Broadway musicals and worked with some of the world’s most eminent soloists.

 

“When I was working with American Ballet Theater or New York City Ballet we had our own classes, but when I was in between, in the summer and things like that, I went to his class,” Mr. Baryshnikov said in an interview on Thursday. “He was a kind of father figure for people like me and like Gelsey.”
