  2. Dear Members, We are again at the point of needing to cover the costs of running Ballet Talk for Dancers and Ballet Alert!, and we need your help! Your donations are used ONLY to cover the fees to Invisionzone and the cost of the bank account services and PayPal. In 2015, with your fabulous help, including the help from your purchases on Amazon made by going through our link, we reached goal in about a month, which was great! The Donation form on the Home Page for credit cards will activate March 6. 2017. (Detailed instructions are here.) If you are using your phone, you will ne
  3. The box has not been activated yet. It should be on the home page later today.
  4. Update...we were not able to get the donation form up today due to technical problems. It may be two or three days before it is functional. Please stay tuned!!!

Your donations are used ONLY to cover the fees to Invisionzone and the cost of the bank account services for allowing credit card donations. In 2014, with your fabulous help, including the help from your purchases on Amazon made by going through our link, we reached goal in record time in well under a month!

  6. We are getting close, everyone, but still need a little bit more to get us through. Would love to get this over with this week!!! Thank you so very much to all who have donated so far! Cubanmiamiboy, there might be a way, I don't know, but I really don't want to go there! Sorry
  7. Hello everyone! Just wanted to let you know that, after a very slow couple of days, yesterday was much better, and started off well this morning. So, we are over half way now. Really would like to get this over and done for this year by the end of March! Thank you so very much to all who have donated so far!!!
  8. THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!! We hit goal this morning, so the fundraiser can come down for another year!
  9. Hi everyone on Ballet Alert! I received a number of posts lately stating that they can't get the donation form to work. There seem to be some problems with certain browsers not handling the form and giving an error page. So, I tried it, using Google Chrome, which is my usual browser, and immediately got an error page. So, I went to Safari, and it went right through and I had an immediate receipt, both in my personal box, and the email notifications came right away to Ballet Talk's Contact Us email account. So, it seems that a part of the reason for the huge slow down in donations lately might
  10. Sunday, March 10, update. A few checks came in and we have hit the two-thirds mark. This is great! But, we really need your help if we are going to get this board paid for through March of next year!. With 3500 members here, and 15500 on BTforD, I was really hoping for more than 67 donations by this time. To those who have donated, we really appreciate your generosity and your appreciation of Ballet Talk for Dancers and Ballet Alert! If you have not done it yet, please think about getting it done as soon as possible. Thank you!!!
  11. Hello everyone! We got off to a great start, and we really appreciate your generous donations so far, but I'm afraid that it has slowed down too much this past week. We are at 50% now, slightly over, but that still only covers half a year, so please get your donations in as soon as you can so that we don't have to either keep going endlessly on this one, or have another one in a few months. Just a reminder to PLEASE put your screen name or email address on the donation form or check!!! I trying to get a thank you note to everyone, but it is complicated if I don't know who you are! Thank you
  12. I was able to access this site going directly from BTforD, and it is working, but, when I tried to access it from my bookmarked list or directly with typing in the address I only get the home page and it is blank except for the top red title bar. If I click on Sign In, nothing comes up. The same appears to be happening for some people on BTforD. And, if I try to go back to BTforD from the link on this page, it does open at all.
  13. Another major, and way too early, loss to the ballet world, to young dancers, and to those of us who knew and loved him. And everyone who knew him loved him. Mark was one of the good ones, in every way. I first met him when he was 12 years old, in Miami, and he was just one of those special kids, who grew up to be a special dancer, teacher, and an exceptional ballet master. He will be be greatly missed by many, many people.
  14. And thank you from all of us on Ballet Talk for Dancers, too! Lots and lots of to you all!!!
  15. She stood about 5' tall...maybe. She had a voice that boomed out like it came from a giant. She screamed a lot, and insisted on absolute attention in class by all, even the professionals. One must never lean on a barre, or practice in the back and distract her, and if by any chance your "feeefth positione" was not perfect at the barre, you were doomed forever.
