  1. They are visible inher younger photos. She doesn't use them anymore because her feet have such huge bunions. Young: Her pointe shoes now:
  2. Kurt Froman announced it: https://www.instagram.com/p/CRjuKxLgA5A/ As did John Clifford: https://www.instagram.com/p/CRfGQf6A7i2/
  3. IMO going to the theater is a privilege, not a right. If theaters can impose dress codes (no flip flops, must wear shoes), they have a right to impose vaccination requirements.
  4. Some organizations like Hamilton are requiring employees get vaccines too: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/13/theater/broadway-reopening.html
  5. NY has something called an Excelsior Pass.
  6. A missed opportunity can mean years of delays. I remember when Stella Abrera was dancing nearly every night. She was doing soloist roles and corps roles and you couldn't miss her. She was for sure being tracked to principal. There was an announcement of Giselle. And she got injured. After that she spent years as a utility soloist before finally making principal at age 37 or so.
  7. In the interviews Megan conducted I was so surprised by the dancers who said they learned a role in a matter of hours bc of a last minute injury. I think Ashley Bouder said she learned Firebird after one run-through.
  8. The story of the principal asking for her role the minute she was injured sounds typical of the business. It's a very tough business and every injury unfortunately is an opportunity for another dancer.
  9. I am vaccinated but as I teach little kids I also have a responsibility not to get them sick. I would be less stressed out if more people were vaccinated and there is less viral load in the community.
  10. Indoors is a different matter though.
  11. I remember her getting a huge knee injury during the Here/Now festival in 2017. That was a season many, many dancers went down with injuries and lots of non-standard rep ballets were being performed. I saw her with a knee brace shortly after an in-performance injury. I remember her being subbed out of Russian Seasons for one.
  12. Springsteen on Broadway also has this policy: https://www.billboard.com/articles/news/9589966/springsteen-broadway-astrazeneca-vaccine-reversal-canada/
  13. Also visible with Irina Dvorovenko:
  14. Roman Mejia definitely will be promoted. Or should be.
  15. The Metropolitan Opera and Carnegie Hall have both announced this policy: https://operawire.com/metropolitan-opera-announces-mandatory-audience-vaccination/ https://operawire.com/carnegie-hall-to-require-proof-of-vaccination/ I think moving forward this will become the policy.
  16. They're visible with Sarah Lamb ...
  17. One thing I notice from a lot of interviews is that Merrill Ashley was a very strong force in the company and many dancers felt like they benefited from her. It's a shame that she is no longer involved in coaching. Gina is not the first dancer to say what a positive force Merrill was for her.
  18. I had been trying to buy a pod with a friend but it didn't work out
  19. I am so bummed I was not able to get a pod.
  20. Abi Stafford talked about having anxiety disorder here: https://www.dancemagazine.com/abi-stafford-anxiety-2647826840.html anyway, the Metropolitan also announced major changes in the fall: Ipheginie is canceled, as is the Netrebko concert.
  21. Isn't she taking a leave anyway to finish law school?
  22. This is not good news for me. I have a medical condition that makes me not have a strong bladder.
  23. Just looking at the SFBAllet roster with an eye test and while there are plenty of Asian dancers the lack of black and Latino dancers is striking.
  24. The Mariinsky has announced that longtime coach Olga Moiseyeva (and former ballerina) has passed away: https://www.instagram.com/p/CQgAy_rDX9V/
  25. I kind of think it's Corella rebranding the company. I could be wrong.
