    I found it and watched it: Are there anyRussian speakers out there who could tell me who the other dancers are and which companies they are from? And was the lowest scorer eliminated?

    I too thank you Jayne. I will miss these dancers. I loved watching them. I hope the panic and horror these three men must be enduring moves them into a profound self-examination and change, as would a fatal car accident shock an alcoholic into sobriety and responsibility for the hurt that he inflicted.
  8. I think Gelsey Kirkland’s book should be reread to counter Mr. Clifford’s memory. All was not sweetness and light in “the good old days.” And I have had experience with “clique warfare” especially in theatre. It’s awful—there’s always a scapegoat if the director is weak and scared.

    Are there any great Classicists today?

    What about Sofiane Sylve?

    Cats in Charge

    When I was working as an actress and rehearsing at home, my cat, watching from my bed, would pee when I came to an heightened emotional moment! I learned to rent space to rehearse!!!

    Who rules today?

    I have seen all of these wonderful dancers many times on video and live as often as possible in New York. The dancer who appears uninvited in my memory and in my heart’s memory most often is Sara Mearns.
