Ripped From Today's Headlines

"Scientist To Clone 5 U.S. Presidents.
News Readers get to pick."
The photos included Lincoln and FDR, and then I averted my eyes:)
Better than the People's Choice Awards! I thought we should have a chance to play, too.
If the scientist has an interest in ballet -- or perhaps the First Runner Up Scientist; we can't be picky -- and you could pick 3 ballet people (choreographers, dancers, whatever) from the past to clone -- not bring back as little old men, but reborn, ready to apply their genius to today's troubled times -- who wouldl they be?
(I am not making this up. Check it out when you go to the grocery store. It's the one with the screaming headline: 'Hitler's Whacky Predictions" which included "internet porn and the rise of J.Lo." I wish I wrote for a tabloid. It would be so much more FUN than writing about dance.!)

Can we choose composers as well?

Balanchine, who is the one choreographer who could adapt to any age.
And I'd be very curious to see how the Vestris family would make out in New York That's very greedy, because there were about a dozen oof them, but they'd share a room.

We need teachers and patrons too. And Nijinska, just because I want to see if there could have been more - or was Les Noces and Les Biches really it?

I'd like to see what Nijinska would do, too, although she might well have been a modern dancer/choreographer rather than a ballet one had she joined the firmament at a later time. That, too, would have been interesting to see.

Tannaquil LeClerq (who will dance into old age)
Is that too many? If we're back to presidents, I'd like to see Thomas Jefferson.
