  1. Peter Martins Sexual Harassment Allegations

    I think they'll have to address the recent anonymous letter though; since they announced an investigation. The public won't forget about that.

    Group effort, I like it.

    Side note- Appearance is huge in ballet. Sex put aside, it's no secret that the more attractive people rise through the ranks quicker (of course because of their talent and work ethic as well). The principal's at NYCB are all very attractice, which is why many of them also get modeling gigs on the side. I guess my point is that if you have a straight male as an AD, your sex appeal in his eyes could affect your career, simply because he's human and a man, even if he's not saying or doing anything innapropriate. One of the reasons I'd like to see a female AD.

    Yup this makes sense. I initially read that qoute as "there's nothing I can do", but I realize now that she meant specifically within the company.
  6. Peter Martins Sexual Harassment Allegations

    Probably some misunderstanding on my part and failure to explain myself well enough. Anyways, it was difficult to read the description of what happened. Makes me angry and my immediate response was, police!

    Point taken. But would she not have also been terrified of the consequences of complaining to HR? Just thinking outloud.
  8. Peter Martins Sexual Harassment Allegations

    I don't think I said anything about it being easy.
  9. Peter Martins Sexual Harassment Allegations

    The implications of that would have been serious, I understand. But there was that option.
  10. Peter Martins Sexual Harassment Allegations

    "no where to go, no protection"? The police perhaps? And why was this charactized as sexual assault when the description suggests otherwise? So many questions...
  11. Peter Martins Sexual Harassment Allegations

    Does anyone remember the chapter in Suzanne Farrel's book in which she excuses Balanchines innapropriate realtionship with her? I re-read it today to see if I was remembering it correctly. Yup, she didn't think Balachine's apology was necessary. Considering the topic being discussed and many mentioning her name, I can't stop thinking about that paragraph.

    The teachers at my dd's school are hands on when it comes to corrections; are you saying this isn't common in the US? (we are in the US to be clear) As you said, I'm not sure how else you could properly teach?

    Few bounce back from allegations whether they're true or not...I don't think this is going to end well.

    "Bringing health to ballet"? What will they do that other companies aren't?
