  1. She might not return, but it would be nice if she got a farewell performance of some sort. Same for Stella. Whatever they can dance.
  2. Did anyone watch this? I enjoyed the new Bernstein piece, but the Seasons pas de deux was not as magical as I remembered it in the theater.
  3. Herd immunity should kick in by July if everyone cooperates and gets their shots. I think that makes the September goal doable.
  4. I never see the point of grieving for objectively horrible people. There are so many wonderful people to grieve for. Especially this past year.
  5. Megan Fairchild wrote a book and it;s coming out Dec 7!
  6. I can say I was disappointed with MCB's offerings. They didnt offer anything I really liked.
  7. I really enjoyed all of Sarasota Ballet's offerings too. That's a company I don't get to see much. Perm Ballet has been fantastic too. Their streams of Natalia Osipova's Giselle and Nikya were stellar. I also really enjoyed all of Royal Danish Ballet's streamings including their new production of La Sylphide.
  8. I personally think NYCB might win because for years we had heard that videos of their performances would "never" be released because of all the myriad issues with the Trust and the different unions. And we instead got a treasure trove of stuff. I also really enjoyed Perm Ballet's streams.
  9. We saw a lot of streamed performances this pandemic, much of it never before seen. Here are some of the companies that have streamed many new performances. WHo won the streaming wars?
  10. Stravinsky Violin Concerto was wonderful!
  11. It's going to be released March 12 on YT. I emailed them.
  12. I think Olga Spessivtseva was the first ballerina to really be long, leggy, and ectomorphic:
  13. There;s actually a rather blurry video of Krohn in Violin Concerto:
  14. One ballerina today who definitely has waist and hips is Sara Mearns:
  15. John Clifford has very negative things to say about the streamed T&V. I don't agree with him. SInce it's public-facing I'll quote it:
  16. Yeah apparently the hoax news was a hoax itself. Paris National Ballet has confirmed it. Very sad. So young.
  17. There are some articles now saying that it's a hoax?
  18. The truth is it's very hard for any dancer to stay in shape and dance a demanding schedule in a big company without being healthy. There are eating disorders like Gelsey Kirkland and Jenifer Ringer but these dancers had to step back from dancing.
  19. I just love the joy Peck showed when she danced. Her entire body seemed to be sparkling with energy.
  20. He added gargouillades for the female soloist, and he also reworked the ballet to be the final movement of the complete Tchaikovsky Suite #3. Here's the ABT version:
  21. For me whether a ballerina "looks" a certain way is less important than if she is healthy. Some ballerinas and athletes have a different, bonier build. For me, the signs of a healthy ballerina are whether they're able to get through extremely demanding ballets, and whether their career is long and not ended by constant injuries. It's not really for me to judge whether a ballerina "needs a cheesecake." I learned never to judge a ballerina by weight after once I saw a ballerina look extremely thin and tired. Her performance was low energy. I was a bit alarmed as her performance didn't have the sparkle it usually has. A few weeks later the same ballerina announced she'd be taking a break as she was pregnant with twins. What I thought was alarming thinness and lack of strength was probably first trimester fatigue.
  22. This T&V was just what I needed tonight!
