  1. After the suspension, Maxwell posted a photo of her with Ramasar and words of support. Among the commenters were several dancers, as well as Chase Finlay’s mother. She has now limited who can post comments, but the photo and words of support are still up.
  2. I think the claims are similar. The head of the national chapter didn’t disseminate the video, the frat boys did. Waterbury claims Finlay and others were exchanging and viewing these images at work. Part of her claim is that there was an environment not unlike a fraternity at NYCB, that there were people who knew this environment existed, and that nothing was done to prevent it.
  3. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/grade-point/wp/2018/06/15/woman-with-help-of-stormy-danielss-lawyer-sues-fraternity-for-circulating-explicit-videos/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.0cc0cf872be8
  4. Women sue fraternities on similar grounds, even though they aren’t members of the fraternity.
  5. Earlier in the thread I had mentioned the hotel room in DC as having $150,000 in damages, which seemed like an absurdly high amount. Rereading the complaint I see that it actually says: Likewise, on a recent trip to Washington D.C., several members of defendant NEW YORK CITY BALLET, INC., including, but not limited to, defendant CHASE FINLAY were fined over $150,000 for destroying a hotel room at a party they hosted with underage girls to whom they provided and plied with drugs and alcohol.
  6. Again, two different laws are being referred to. Stephanie’s law involves images/videos being taken and shared without the subject’s consent. It is illegal in all cases. The revenge law refers to sharing images/videos that were taken with the consent of the subject but then are later shared. It is the revenge law that has the “intent to cause harm” clause.
  7. In the case of the $150,000 trashed hotel room with underage girls being supplied drugs and alcohol, it sounds like it was while the company was on tour in DC.
  8. For the record, the 2017 NYC revenge porn law refers to distributing or threatening to distribute intimate images without the permission of the subject with the intent to cause harm. This largely refers to photos or videos taken with the permission of the subject, or photos the subject sent to a partner. It was already illegal to spread videos of someone engaged in a sexual act if the video was made without their knowledge or permission. There is no “intent to cause harm” clause. At least with revenge porn the subject knows the photos or videos exist and is no longer in a relationship with the jerk who shares them. What Finlay did was such a violation of trust—he did this to someone while they were in a relationship.
  9. I agree that 19 must refer to her age when she started dating Finley, because I remember reading, maybe on her Instagram, about the 20th anniversary of the heart surgery she had as an infant. And she started attending Columbia in 2016.
  10. Yes, last year Hoven filled in for Whiteside, partnering Murphy, once. (As did Gomes. Sigh).
  11. They released casting for Nutcracker in Costa Mesa. Blaine Hoven is cast with Sarah Lane and Thomas Forster is cast with Christine Shevchenko. Stella Abrera’s Prince is still To Be Announced.
  12. Looks like there are still plenty of tickets available.
  13. It’s odd that they would change her picture. They haven’t yet updated the Dancers page to reflect promotions and retirements, so I’m not sure the reason. The fact that she both states that she has left the company and lists her occupation as Former Dancer with ABT on her personal Facebook page and has removed ABT from her Instagram seems more telling to me than whatever is happening with photos on ABT’s website.
  14. I tried to find out more information. On her Facebook page it says she left ABT on January 1.
  15. I was just coming here to post the same thing. I love that Katherine Williams is getting this opportunity. With only two female soloists it seems like the perfect time for the women in the Corp to show what they can do.
  16. The lack of dorm thing seems crazy to me. I’ve always wondered how teenagers join the Studio Company if they don’t live locally. Are they all from wealthy families?
  17. Veronika Part is dancing with her in Isadora at Segerstrom Center in Costa Mesa. The Sadler’s Wells program just says she will be joined by three other dancers, including David Hallberg.
  18. Ah, he’s dancing there with Natalia Osipova in September for a program she is doing called Pure Dance.
  19. He says “Rehearsals for @sadlers_wells” but I can’t see anything on their schedule that makes sense.
  20. Hmm. ABT is bringing Harlequinade to Costa Mesa mid-January. I guess the children will be going straight from Nutcracker to Harlequinade rehearsals.
  21. I think that the JKO school will always be limited in the students they can attract because they don’t have housing. Their pool is limited to people who live close enough to commute. They don’t even have dorm contracts for their five week summer Intensive.
  22. If you click the link, it isn’t a reference to the Carol Pardo review.
