  1. Thanks for the quick reply.
  2. Bravo to Unity Phelan filling in for Sara Mearns at Eastern Connecticut Ballet's Nutcracker; dancing Snow Queen and Mearn's scheduled Sugar Plum in one show! Does anyone know the nature of Sara Mearn's injury?
  3. I don't quite understand this decision...have other companies done this?
  4. Also guesting according to Eastern Connecticut Ballet's website for their Nutcracker: Sara Mearns, Jared Angle, Unity Phelan, and Adrian Danchig-Waring.
  5. She is listed as the new AD of Kaatsbaan SI 2020 on their website.
  6. I'm sorry I was probably misunderstood- she's cast in all of their other ballets. However in Nutcracker, she's only cast in Chinese (in the 2nd Act). I'm sure she could do something else. I'm not behind the scenes though... that's why I'm wondering if she likes the role or not.
  7. I wonder how Asian dancers feel about this... I'm genuinely curious if they enjoy, or loathe being cast specifically because of their race. The one Asian dancer at the largest company in my local area is ALWAYS cast in Chinese in Nutcracker. She will never even be considered for anything else, because, well...would it insult her if they cast a white dancer? I have no idea.
  8. Absolutely- the ballets & the dancers who perform them.
  9. Admiring dancers in a dance company, is kind of the whole point of a company Instagram account.
  10. They're not going to answer a question like that on Instagram. Instagram is for snapshot photos for marketing. Is there a specific scene in BB's Nutcracker that the user finds offensive? They would be better off sending an email with their concerns.
  11. Any update on what Gelsey Kirkland is up to? Sad to see she's no longer training pre-pro students. Her school seems to be a rec school now.
  12. I thought she had it in her profile but I could be wrong.
