  1. Vaccine mandates are causing some orchestra members to be fired: https://www.post-gazette.com/ae/music/2021/10/26/Pittsburgh-Symphony-Orchestra-covid-19-vaccination-requirement/stories/202110220127
  2. I actually know of people who got vaccinated just to attend a one-off concert so you're not alone.
  3. Many dancers have been very outspoken about how they think the lack of vaccinations caused them to be out of work and threatened their livelihood. Herman Cornejo: https://www.instagram.com/p/CVVxZqkJRb9/
  4. The FDA is approving vaccines for 5 to 11 year olds. Hopefully that means more little kids can attend, just in time for Nutcracker season.
  5. I find that with AM it's not what he says, it's also how he says it. He comes across in this article as super-defensive, when sometimes a simple, straight explanation would do.
  6. At the Mariinsky Albrecht runs into the cottage with a fancy cape and comes out with his "peasant" brown outfit:
  7. This. I really am so disgusted at how selfish so much of the country is.
  8. David Hallberg used to do the brises very well too.
  9. One thing I've always been irked about is how the term "ballet body" is used to describe a certain type of extremely thin, leggy dancer. For instance, Maria Kowroski is a perfect example -- I heard over and over again how she had the best "ballet body" because of her legs and feet. But she herself has said many times that her super-long legs, arched feet, and flexible back made her prone to injuries. So "ballet body" is being used just to describe a certain aesthetic.
  10. In addition to negative comments being triggering, I'll say from experience that positive comments could also be triggering. For instance, I've had times in my life when I was subsisting on almost no food, and all I got were compliments for how "great" I looked. All that told me was that starving myself was a prerequisite to "looking great."
  11. Younger audience members are allowed in with a negative PCR test:
  12. Masks and vaccines are required for MCB too ...
  13. I would never go to a healthcare worker who was so irresponsible and reckless as to not get the vaccine but that's just me ...
  14. Actually, you can. All NYCB dancers either got vaccinated or faced dismissal. My workplace has a mandated vaccine too -- those who didn't got taken off payroll immediately.
  15. Well it's never going to end if people are selfish and don't get vaccinated ...
  16. Another person I saw in the audience was Zach Catazaro. Lots of alumni and former members of NYCB.
  17. I saw Heather Watts with Damian in the lobby. She was there, as was Eddie Villela. Ashley Bouder wasn't there but she might be rather immobile from her injury. I also saw Gillian Murphy in the lobby.
  18. I wrote up a little appreciation of the retiring dancers of NYCB: https://humbledandoverwhelmed.blogspot.com/2021/10/nycb-waves-goodbye-and-says-welcome-back.html
  19. Lauren King got a solo bow at the end of LA Valse.
  20. Some farewell tributes to Lauren King: https://www.instagram.com/p/CVGBYkGggMb/?utm_medium=copy_link
  21. Well Tiler is amazing in Other Dances and she and Roman often dance together. I'm looking forward to it.
  22. Reichlen used to always do it, Miriam Miller has done it, Rebecca Krohn used to do it a lot.
  23. Back to NYCB -- got an email for Nutcracker tickets and uh ... sticker shock. Fourth Ring tickets START at $89.
