  1. Mist Copeland appeared on NPR's "Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!" and was quizzed on Morris Dancing. http://www.npr.org/2014/04/26/306545450/not-my-job-ballerina-misty-copeland-gets-quizzed-on-morris-dancing
  2. New York City Ballet in Montreal, vols. 1-5

    Volumes 1 and 2 are now available at Amazon.com.
  3. time travel

    A season of Balanchine's NYCB in the 1950's. Not sure about the specific year.
  4. Ballet "Draft"

    Its an interesting idea. A ballet draft would gain mention in the news outlets. The publicity would enhance interest.
  5. repertory in review available on ebay

    Any chance it will be reprinted?
  6. In need of a ballet vocabulary video

    I purchased that DVD with the same goal of learning the names of the steps. I barely remember any of them because each basic step seemed to have a dozen minor variations. No fault of the DVD.

    What are you reading the board on? Firefox. The font and contrast have improved.

    Is there a way to adjust the display width (or number of columns)? To read a post I have to either use the horizontal scroll bar for each line or reduce the font size.
  9. Mariinsky JEWELS being released on DVD

    Jewels is now available at US Amazon.com
  10. Joffrey dancers locked out?

    I would prefer to support the dancers except there is no apparent way to earmark donations. Maybe there is a non-company specific charity that benefits dancers. Union bashing is all the rage these days, but not for me.
  11. Joffrey dancers locked out?

    Locking out the dancers is harsh and heavy handed. Although I recently sent Joffrey a donation now I'll reconsider my level of support for next year.
  12. It is almost available at Amazon.com, Sylphides / Giselle
  13. POB @ Harris Theater in Chicago

    Selling tickets 14 months before the performance is surprising to me. Is this a record lead time?
  14. Ballet's Magic Kingdom by Akim Volynsky is an interesting book and well worth reading.
