Sarah Kaufman, Ballet Critic Wins 2010 Pulitzer

Recommended Posts

Sarah Kaufman, the Washington Post's dance critic, has won the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for criticism:

For distinguished criticism, in print or online or both, Ten thousand dollars ($10,000). Awarded to Sarah Kaufman of The Washington Post for her refreshingly imaginative approach to dance criticism, illuminating a range of issues and topics with provocative comments and original insights.

One of her pieces, "Ballet Must Make Room Onstage for More Than One Genius," prompted a lengthy (and very interesting) discussion among BTers here: The Fell Influence of Balanchine

I don't always agree with Kaufman (I had more than a few reservations about "More Than One Genius,") but I think it's terrific that a dance critic, and a thoughtful one at that, won a Pulitzer. Congratulations to Ms. Kaufman!
