  1. Anyone else watch her interview with Lauren Lovette? Based on her comments I wouldn't be shocked if Lovette does not return to dancing.
  2. I know a lot of people look down on her for her social media presence, but Syklar Brandt has put in the work on major full length roles
  3. As someone who can rarely get to NYC I have LOVED all the digital programming, but would definitely like to see whole pieces. For instance Diamonds last year took my breath away I can't remember how many times I watched it. IF it was only presented in excerpts it wouldn't have been able to truly appreciate it. My local company tries to do Balanchine, but it leaves me just wanting to see more NYCB. Agree with everyone on promotions, I feel like there hasn't been much movement with the new regime.
  4. I don't know if any of you are watching Vail's virtual festival this coming week, but I really enjoyed Opening Night. I was especially taken with Unity Phelan in Apollo with ABT's Calvin Royal.
  5. hopefully we will get several casts of nutcracker
  6. I believe I saw on Indiana Woodward's instagram that he is injured
  7. Sara Mearns was on the latest With Dance and Stuff podcast and they have a really interesting conversation about why she gave up Lilac Fairy. If you just want to listen to Sara you can skip ahead to 13:46
  8. I understand where Ashley can come off as self important in the article, but I also applaud her for speaking out. If she hadn't then we would not know how much of an influence Martins still holds. I find it appalling that he was able to behave this way considering the reasons for his exit. I place that blame solely at the foot of the board who still seem to hold him in greater esteem than the dancers. I think it is fair for her to criticize why she was switched cast if it was truly done at the last minute. Maybe bringing to light these issues will speed along the reform that needs to happen an
  9. As well as Reichlen as Lilac, I believe her debuting Carabosse is a sign as that is what Mearns did last run
  10. No Mearns Lilac Fairy the first week is surprising
  11. I would love to see Unity Phelan and those extensions as Lilac Fairy
  12. Besides Reichlen and Mearns who were the previous Lilac Fairies?
  13. For those of you who cannot make it to the City, but still want some Balanchine Nutcracker in their lives I have discovered that the 2011 Lincoln Center at the Movies recording is available for rent/purchase on iTunes, the Kevin Kline narrated version is still on Netflix. It was great to see the current dancers while sitting on my couch tonight. It has Fairchild/De Luz as Sugar Plum/ Cavalier, Bouder as Dewdrop, Reichlen as Coffee, and Peck as Marzipan.
  14. very interested other about Ulbricht, he waited a long time for this
  15. I thought Gretchen Smith's purple suit was stunning
