  1. Hi, sasark, and welcome to BalletAlert! Lucky you, to have been able to see Erica Cornejo regularly. She was a favorite of mine at ABT, and I miss her. As you'll see as you browse the forums, there is no specific "language of ballet criticism," so don't feel intimidated. We're eager to hear what you see. Do you remember the leads in the Prague Swan Lake? Curious.
  2. Welcome to BalletAlert, kika. You do not yet have 10 substantive posts, so you do not yet have access to personal messaging. Any potential seller can reach you through the CONTACT US link at the top, right-hand side of the screen. The admins will be happy to forward messages to you. However, it might be more timely if you're willing to provide an email address here. That risks spam, but it's up to you. PS: If you get in, I hope you report on it.
  3. Thank you, winnieido, and welcome to BalletAlert! Hyperdog, since winnieido doesn't yet have messaging privileges (and if you're still following this forum), please use the CONTACT US link near the top right-hand side of the screen, and we'll forward to her.
  4. Welcome, amckean. Love the photo. So ethereal! I will look forward to reading your posts here. I hope you won't be shy about engaging in our discussions that may not be about a particular performance.
  5. And a warm welcome to you, too, kfalker.
  6. We are excited to have you, mnmom. I took a glimpse at http://balancing-pointe.com , and I expect to spend quite a few hours there. Congratulations to your daughter on her apprenticeship. And welcome to BalletAlert!
  7. Dale, are you talking about the "ring" seats numbered Row AA? Because I've never had a problem with the single-letter seats. Maybe the difference in our heights, though not great, accounts for our different reactions.

  13. Welcome to BalletAlert!, nicoletteliles. For your first ballet experience, I'd recommend the back of the First Ring. My personal preference is to be a little higher, but the difference between the back of First v. the back of Third Ring is significant. You'll enjoy greater immediacy while still having a full view of the stage. If you are within what would be considered a normal height range, your view will not be obscured by the person in front of you unless 1) s/he is unusually tall, or 2) s/he insists on leaning forward. Usually, a gentle tap on the shoulder and polite request to sit ba
