    Peter Martins Sexual Harassment Allegations

    Many schools have a contract that the student is to sign including something to the effect that he or she understands that touching by the instructor is often necessary in ballet for giving corrections and guiding the student.

    Nutcracker casting & recommendations

    I am getting advertisements in my email every day but still no mention of casting. The only thing I have discovered with any mention of casting was on their Facebook page, referring to an article about Sydney Dolan a 16 year old apprentice being cast as the Sugar Plumb but I can not find any list of performance casting.

    Here is a review on the premiere of Devon Carney's Romeo and Juliet: http://www.kcindependent.com/equal-parts-dance-and-drama-kc-ballet-presents-new-version-of-durable-classic/
  5. What a neat gift it would be for ballet lover foodies!
  6. I wonder how this is different than the trainees that they had in the past. Their website used to list a few second company members and quite a few trainees. Now they list a slightly larger group of second company members but there are no trainees listed. Pictured in the article are about twelve young ladies who I assume are in the "new" program, but I can't help but wonder how it is different.

    Thank you Fleurfairy I have been wondering about this company. Would you say it is mostly Stephan Mills' choreography. I am getting the vibe it has more of a contemporary bend but I could be wrong.

    Le Corsaire: Pennslvania Ballet

    Saturday night's cast was spectacular, and the Odalisques did get to bow this time! I thought it strange they were left out last Sunday. (I guess too bad for last Sunday's cast) As a matter of fact everyone bowed last night. It felt like a better closing to me.

    Le Corsaire: Pennslvania Ballet

    I also saw today's performance. I thought it was great, definitely a feast for the eyes with such great sets and costumes. Aleksey Babayev was a standout as Ali and I thought Yuka Iseda was flawless, both corps members. I was a little surprised to see only two women in the finale. I know the female corps dancers didn't dance much but I expected to see the odalisque on stage during the bows.(What do I know, I'm no ballet expert) I am looking forward to returning next Saturday evening to see Babayev again, this time as Conrad and Mayara as Medora who I so enjoyed last year in Don Q.
  10. Kansas City Ballet has been invited to perform Devon Carney's Nutcracker in November at the Kennedy Center. What do people think of this company? I am looking to see a more diverse group of companies than my usual ABT, NYC, PA Ballet,

    Excited to see Sunday's show. I had tickets for the Kennedy Center in January and then it was snowed out. Will let ya know how it goes. I really enjoyed San Francisco Ballet perform Wheeldon's Cinderella, this will be my second Wheeldon Full length.
