  1. Does anyone know if other dancers were let go? I thought he hired Sterling Baca with Sara Murawski because they would be good together.
  2. In any other field this would be grounds to sue - job discrimination based on looks - if she had grown while on the job I could somehow accept this but he knew her height when she was hired. He asked her to leave Europe and come as a Principal dancer. This is a bad move for the reputation of the company.
  3. I haven't seen the NYC Ballet Nutcracker in a few years. I think the last time I saw it Lauren Lovette was SugarPlum and Mary Elizabeth Sell was the Dewdrop. The performance was mesmerizing. They are both appropriate for the parts. Lauren was very much the elegant and delicate fairy and Mary Elizabeth Sell flew through the air with great ease. I wonder if she is cast again as Dewdrop this year. I still haven't bought my tickets. Any suggestions for a particular performance?
  4. Excellent article on the subject of body diversity in Dance Magazine http://dancemagazine.com/inside-dm/beyond_perfect_a_manifesto/
