    Kurt Froman's Instagram & NYCB

    Quite bizzare. How does one "see" into another woman's mind. After reading her autobiography all I could think was "that's so messed up!!" (her relationship with Mr. B). Why question her feelings about it?

    Job posting for artistic director

    I've said this before on a different topic but it pertains to this as well...there are some of us (new ballet lovers), plus new generations, that are just discovering the brilliance of Balanchine. None of it is old to us, it's all new and exciting. Please don't let it die!! Please choose someone who will keep his legacy alive! *Hopes search committee reads ballet alert comments* 😉

    NYCB 2018-2019 Season

    I was looking forward to my one show I attend this year being the 1 time only Feb 8th date. Why can't I buy a single ticket? Is it for subscribers only?

    In the comments she says that "life circumstances" helped her lose weight so quickly. She looks incredible. I sincerely hope she is doing well, physically, emotionally, and mentally, despite "life circumstances". It would be pretty exciting if she started performing again.

    "Dancing Through It"

    I enjoyed her book. It's nothing like other ballet bio's you'll read.

    Thank you, that explanation does help me understand a bit better.

    Chase Johnsey leaves Trocks; Joins ENB

    Forgive my ignorance, but I'm really confused by him...he uses male pronouns...but goes under the knife to make his face more "feminine"... is he on hormones to grow breasts? "Gender fluid" just confuses the heck out of me. Genuinely curious!

    "Harlequinade" 2018.

    As a mother of 5 it sounds like pure torture at the thought of bringing one of my younger ones to a ballet. Why do that to yourself? Why do that to others? All of the behavior you describe is normal. The child was bored to shreds. Shouldn't have been there.

    Misty Copeland, Part Deux

    I've always assumed these dancers have unknown personal accounts that they share with family/friends. Public accounts like these are supposed to be for advertising, no? It's to promote themselves/their ballet company. If they can sell products too...good for them!
  14. The list I saw just says "George Balanchine's The Nutcracker".
  15. Balanchine's Nutcracker coming to Netflix June 1st.
