  1. Her and Unity Phelan, please ballet gods... I check for news of their promotions regularly, yet here we are. Anybody went to see the Bouder/Furlan Swan Lake run? I'm mostly interested in how Furlan did.
  2. Very true, I also did enjoy the episodes with Litton, and have actually gone and watched the 1973 footage of Balanchine's Symphony in C right after the episode discussing Bizet's piece and how Balanchine used it. I hope for more of these pieces about the music and the composers, it was fascinating. I did like the episode with the Principal Oboist, but it got a bit too technical for me at times in the explanations and they used words I had to look up as I have no knowledge of music theory - but also maybe because English is not my first language and I sometimes am missing the technical vocabulary of very specific fields.
  3. Any reports on the Furlan/Hod performance?
  4. I just wanted to say that I love the new feature of the podcast: The Rosin Box with Claire Kretzschmar and Aarón Sanz. It's been so nice to get to know the dancers individually, to hear them talk about their paths, their personal lives, their experiences. It's so fascinating, and makes them so human and "approachable" in a way. While I did find some episodes of the first season a bit dry at times, this new series is fantastic. I hope we get to hear from every dancer, and get more behind-the-scened tidbits like these.
  5. Joy has resurfaced on social media after facing what sounds like serious health issues per her Instagram post. I am glad to read she is on the road to recovery now, and slowly getting back to dancing.
  6. Thank you Vipa for the update on Tiler Peck. I am so happy to see you all rave about Jovani Furlan! He was always one of my favorites to watch down at Miami City Ballet, and I'm very happy to hear he's transitioned well into NYCB and is doing great already.
  7. Maybe I missed this, but how long will Tiler Peck be out? I gather she's injured since she's not cast anywhere.
  8. Oh goodness, that's always my biggest fear when I bike and I always try to stay clear of parked cars as much as possible... I wish him a speedy recovery, and I am very glad it doesn't sound like it's a major injury.

    She just posted this little video of her dancing Dewdrop at MCB on her Instagram, and I just had to share. It's like she never left. Her arms and her musicality are fantastic. I wish I still lived in Miami so I could go and watch her dance.
  10. I believe it's Megan Fairchild. I am also pretty sure it's Peter Walker with the beard and long hair tied in a bun. It looks like he's dancing with Pollack? It took me a while to make sure it was him as well.
  11. I finished listening to all three episodes today, and I am very excited for this podcast and the content we will get out of it. Silas Farley has THE perfect voice for this role, he's so soothing yet captivating. I could have listened to him go on and on for hours. I could hear in his voice the passion and enthusiasm he has for ballet and its history, so it truly was delightful to listen to him. I can't wait for more of it, and to also hear from Whelan and Litton. What a fantastic initiative! I love the direction NYCB seems to be taking right now with outreach and social media, with these new podcasts and the live Instagram video of the DGV rehearsal... Now bring back Devin Alberda's backstage photographs, and I'm going to be the most happy camper and NYCB fan ever.
  12. Thanks for sharing. I love podcasts, so I can't wait to listen to this one. Hopefully it appears on Apple Podcasts soon so it's easier for me to download and listen. This is a great idea.
  13. I used to watch her vlogs a few years ago while she was in her early years with the Kremlin Ballet after leaving the Bolshoi... She crossed my mind today and I was wondering what she was up. Great news for her! I hope she can thrive there and find a home for the years to come.
  14. Exactly, that's why I decided on these seats in the end. I figured since it's a ballet with a prominent corps presence, it was probably better to view it from a bit further up. I was very happy with that decision in the end.
