Glass in pointe shoes and greased stairs...

3 posts in this topic

A lovely topic, but I was wondering...

Has anyone, in their perhaps extensive careers as dancers or otherwise, come across these acts (or other) of cruelty in the ballet world? I would just be interested in any stories.

Not that I am contemplating something bad, but I was just curous.

How desperate can dancers get?

I have heard of someone cutting up a potential lead's pointe shoes right before nutcracker auditions!

If there is one thing I've learned in my time in ballet, it is Mark Twain's Rule of Accidency: "Never ascribe to malice that for which a sufficient explanation is stupidity."
