Can't wait to see if Sylviane is really All That; she's doing Sugar Plum tomorrow night (and Sunday afternoon), and while Balanchine didn't choreograph fouettes for his Sugar Plum, perhaps she'll grace us with them anyway, althought I'd bet not.

If not, she's always doing Third (née Fourth) Movement of Western Symphony next week, and I'm sure there will be a lot of people (like me) waiting quite eagerly for her to get to the fouettes. Wouldn't it be awful if she let everyone down by only finishing with a quadruple?

That it is. When referring to it in English, people usually call it the "Dutch National Ballet."
