ABT's new director

4 posts in this topic

Samba, I don't know anything about him. A presenter is quite different, and has different problems, from an executive director of a ballet company (the presenter gets the package gift-wrapped, so to speak, and doesn't have to worry about what the company goes through to perform on a tour). But he may well know that :) I have a soft spot for anyone who majored in dance at college. I wish him and the company all best -- they deserve some calm.

From my days running a modern dance co. that performed at Hancher, I remember Chappell as a nice guy. But I do find it curious that ABT couldn't find anyone from NYC who was familiar with the funding and social scene in their last two searches. NYC is not Iowa.

Maybe that's a good thing. It might be good to get some freshness into this rot-ridden organization. I hope he knows what he's getting into.
