    Job posting for artistic director

    I thought the same thing when I saw this.

    Could she come back as a soloist with NYCB?

    Balanchine's Don Quixote: Worth a Revival?

    For the record...I think all of those relationships were "bizarre". He didn't love them in the way we understand love. The master-muse relationship in various art fields has always been a bit bizarre.

    Eating disorders and ballet

    A non-apology apology. Yup, that's a thing. I've gotten them.

    I realize it's a turn off that's he's all me me me I did this and that all the time...but that seemed like a great coaching session none the less. Even if he was "only" with NYCB for 7 years; that's still a long time for a ballet dancer. He has coaching value.

    ABT 2019 Met Season

    The more I read about ABT the more I wonder why any dancer would want to work for them. You dance very little, and only if you're very very lucky will you ever dance a lead role. What is the draw to this company? Don't dancers join companies because they want to, you know, dance!?

    Where is Brooklyn Mack?

    The board is delusional based on the qoutes in this article. Wake up...you're broke. Time to switch things up.

    Crazy thought...maybe they'll decide in the end to just keep the interim team in place. Why ruin a good thing just because it's not traditional.

    Yikes...so he clearly can't run a company. Thanks for this info.

    I didn't realize he was that old! He looks good for his age.

    I'm curious as to the reasons why he's an obvious no? Obviously he has a huge ego. But so did Balanchine. He thought his choreography was so brilliant (it was, to be fair) that individual dancers shouldn't think of themselves as stars. His choreography was the star. Talk about ego... To be honest...I really liked his idea that he presented in his last videos (ballet to Broadway as a way to bring in more $$).
  13. Do you work for NYCB? I don't know why you would assume it's "likely" the dancers don't care, or that they're overestimating the effect of the lawsuit (do you know how many letters they've received from donors withdrawing support?), unless you work for NYCB.
  14. How do you know they don't know the facts? If Ramasar admitted to the existence of the texts publicly, I would think the dancers would know even more, privately (Sterling H. has said there is more the public doesn't know). With the texts alone however, that's enough to justify any female dancers discomfort.
  15. To be fair though, we have no idea what each NYCB dancer thinks about what was said; they have no choice but to stand there and clap.
