    I am noticing that people aren't quite liking the guest artist thing. I wouldn't think he would have a choice. Whoever does the casting makes the decisions. At least in the normal world thats usually how it goes. I'm jealous you get to go regularly to the ROH. I only get to see whats in the theater and when people take illegal videos which I dont support but greatly appreciate. I'm relatively new to ballet, only watching the last few years and out of the company's the RB really is at the top. Its the only one i actually like to be honest. Its fun being able to identify the dancers on screen.

    Ed Watson is a strange fellow. Well i mean he's fine but I mean he's obviously very talented and he is at the top at the RB but you really don't see him in much, or maybe i'm just not looking enough. I don't think he does any of those extra curricular activities like galas and guesting. I loved his Maylering though.

    Thanks for the replies guys. Its nice to hear something positive, not just about Steven but others. I feel a lot of reviews and critics seem to be missing the point which is to dance. But you can't please everyone. I somehow located the La Fille mal Gardee from 2012 with Roberta Marquez and I absolutely adore it. I like Natalia, she's talented and fun but Roberta as Lise, you can just tell by her expression how much she embodied the character and she matched well with Mcraes Colas. He does stand out. I had gotten the 2009 Romeo and Juliet with Carols Acosta from the library an
  4. I only watched the Royal Ballet footage since that's the one I like best and it was so fun. They have the classes from the past years up but it makes me sad that the full streaming is no longer available for those who didn't see this in the past. It was really great to see so many principals in there and that Olga lady was awesome, though I prefer Brian Maloney, he sings the instructions.

    So I found myself here cause I had some unusual questions about ballet and forums are a great place to look and for fun I put in "Steven McRae" in the search box because he's my fave dancer, and I'm just curious...am I missing something? I read any and all posts that came up in the search and while I know everything is subjective, a lot that came up was just so negative (particularly from one person's frequent reviews who obviously believes they know everything). I personally find him to be an amazing talent. He's expressive, he's technical, he's versatile, has great musicality and he ha
