  1. Nutcracker 2017

    Her extensions are gorgeous, that's for sure.
  2. Peter Martins Sexual Harassment Allegations

    I think Morgan was foolish to comment at all. I was expecting her to keep her mouth shut, as is the norm. I was very surprised she addressed it but I guess she felt she had to speak about her own personal experience. However, she was in the company a relatively short time and was a rising star. So she might have been somewhat sheltered and coddled from the worst of it.
  3. Nutcracker 2017

    Agree. There haven't been any surprise or compelling casting choices this year. I guess management just wanted to "stay the course" during the company turmoil.
  4. Peter Martins Sexual Harassment Allegations

    Kathryn Morgan mentioned three dancers she knew of that were sleeping with him at the time; in her comments she says one was a principal. I guess we can't speculate on this forum but it does make one wonder.

    Anyone have thoughts on Sara Mearns Instagram post re Dewdrop? I’m wondering if it was a jab toward Peter for taking her out of the role. To be honest, I don’t think every ballerina is suited for every role and Sara is much more of a melodramatic dancer whereas Dewdrop has to be happy, Light, and sprightly.

    By his own admission, Clifford fancied himself Balanchine's successor before Martins became the frontrunner.
  7. Peter Martins Sexual Harassment Allegations

    Interesting how it's been former corps members who all of a sudden "remember" these events.
  8. Judging by that Instagram clip she posted, I'm not sure that is a good idea... eesh.
  9. 2018 Met Season

    Those fouettes were fine. They got the job done. I adore Sarah's dancing, but yeah I think she needs to really get in the studio and have some intense fouette coaching. Especially for her debut in Don Q this spring season. And someone needs to tell her that 32 clean, confident singles are still going to wow the audience.
  10. Robert Fairchild and Tiler Peck...........

    Wow canbelto, that's kind of bizarre that they both blocked you. Bizarre and uncalled for.
  11. Nutcracker Casting

    I'd like to see Abi Stafford and Adrian Danchig-Waring on that matinee. Abi dances so rarely these days, I feel like it's a treat when she does dance.
  12. Nutcracker Casting

    Interesting...I wonder if she's thinking of early retirement in favor of a career in choreography. That would be a shame though, because I enjoy her dancing.
  13. Nutcracker Casting

    I want to see Megan Fairchild, although not sure if I can get down to the city when she's dancing Sugarplum. Maybe I can catch her as Dewdrop. Sidenote: What's going on with Lauren Lovette? Is she injured? Seems like she hasn't been cast in much the last couple seasons.
  14. Tiler Peck on Ellen

    There are dancers that are just such a pleasure to watch and she is one of them.
