  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Absolutely- the ballets & the dancers who perform them.
  4. Admiring dancers in a dance company, is kind of the whole point of a company Instagram account.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. I thought she had it in her profile but I could be wrong.
  8. I agree they are likely paying very close attention to social media posts.
  9. I'm not sure if we're not allowed to discuss this (I noticed the Womack thread is closed for commenting); social media is obviously a huge marketing tool- and Womacks followers have been brutal lately on her IG; and Womack isn't deleting any of the comments. Is it possible BB is trying to avoid a spotlight on Womack's life right now? I'm just thinking, it's a possible explanation.
  10. I don't even think it's worth discussing to be honest (not that you can't)...I think he just wants press to sell his books.
  11. I guess it's just a matter of opinion. I don't think adding comedy to ballet necessarily = mockery. This is one of my fav's:
  12. Comments gone on her apology. Might as well just delete it.
  13. I'm not really sure I understand how a company can monitor health? You need more than just a scale.
