  1. Which tweets led you to believe that they found it amusing? I'm not on Twitter. The tweet I qouted was from an article.
  2. She posted the girls IG name, along with a re-post of the original text, including 6 other Russian girls IG's, 5/6 which are now "not found". When you re-post, it is not necessary to post the text/names. You can easily just post the picture. It shows up on their end when their name is tagged. Misty knows that. And yet still, after all of the bullying, she doesn't delete the text and names? She could leave her original message and picture and delete their identities. Any reasonable person would do so upon hearing that children are getting death threats. She said this on Twitter: "But until we can call people out and make people uncomfortable, change can't happen". But I digress. This is the reality of social media.
  3. Just curious if any of you are currently parenting a teen girl dancer in the age of social media? It's brutal out there.
  4. He mentioned Misty in Swan Lake in July- and how his training is the reason she's improved. Did anyone see her in this performance? Did you notice a difference?
  5. For those that were interested and talking about this months ago; the last 10 mins of this describes the nature of Misty's training year with Conrad.
  6. 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?
  7. I don't quite understand this decision...have other companies done this?
  8. Also guesting according to Eastern Connecticut Ballet's website for their Nutcracker: Sara Mearns, Jared Angle, Unity Phelan, and Adrian Danchig-Waring.
  9. She is listed as the new AD of Kaatsbaan SI 2020 on their website.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
