Reality TV and ballet:

There’s more football on “Friday Night Lights” than there is ballet on “Breaking Pointe.” Even when it’s shown, it’s virtually ignored. Last season, the company worked on George Balanchine’s haunting ballet “Emeralds,” but I can’t recall having heard his name mentioned once. This time, the company is gearing up to perform Frederick Ashton’s “Cinderella.” I’m fairly sure that a dancer mentioned “Ashton” under her breath, but that’s about it for context.
