Thanks to rg, who tipped me off to Mirella's "Tutu Review" last night, I've found another online source of ballet articles. Mirella (the costume people) have a site with several articles, each with its own collection of links, by Mindy Aloff (dance injuries), Clive Barnes (Frederick Ashton) and Tobi Tobias (Ballerinas Today and Dance and Custume). There are four so far, and I'm going to post each one of them separately. Since they're permanently on the web, they may be useful not only for discussion now, but for browsers (and Homework Helpers) in the future.
The article on Ashton is by Barnes, long a champion of Ashton. There are lots of photos, and a collection of links at the bottom.
Sir Fred - A Twentieth Century Original
Original, passionate, innovative, and marvelously unique, Ashton simply is one of the finest classic choreographers of the last century.
