Thanks, kirovgal! Please ask Maw & Paw to e-mail me, after a nice apology...you have an important service to perform, in the name of Art, through use of that computer! ;)

Cheers,

Skip the part about the birds, go to the second question -- they're talking about ballet in the aisles in Jackson.

The link below takes you to a list of all competitors who have made it on to the finals (Round III). NO SURPRISES - all of my pre-announced favorites, who came to Jackson for actual competition, have breezed through...Chinese, Bostonians, Kirov Academy faves...and Emi Hariyama of Japan.

You'll need Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) on your computer, so as to see this. If you don't have it, it can be downloaded for free via a number of internet sources.

hi, guys.
I would like to know your comments or other comments from the media about the only junior female competitor form China--whose name is Zhang Jing.

She is the classmate of Yao Wei and Fang Zhong Jing. I think she is also did a good job, although is not as good as Yao and Fang.

How do you guys like her?

Quick note to thank everyone who has been relaying information on this IBC (including the wonderful photos on the other thread!). I'm in 'overseas work status' this week & can barely squeeze time for quick peek at my favorite ballet board. I'm grateful that we have other 'Jackson Followers' out there!! :(

Can someone explain why if Olympic style judging is used at IBC, then why were there no gold medals in some rounds? I know that for the Junior girls there were many falls during the final round but is there a score that must be achieved for a gold to be given (which is not true Olympic judging).

Well, I don't think it's really Olympic style judging, but rather is "referred" to as the Olympics of ballet...

Here is a blurb from the Clarion-Ledger...
_

In the VII USA International Ballet Competition, concluding this weekend in Jackson, the International Jury also didn't award a gold medal to a senior (age 19-26) male or to a junior (age 15-18) female. That's not unusual, jury chairman Bruce Marks said. Unlike the Olympics, competitors aren't judged against each other, but against standards set by previous IBC winners, such as Jose Manuel Carreo (1990 Grand Prix, Jackson) and Mikhail Baryshnikov (1969 gold, Moscow).
