    Danny Tidwell RIP

    Car accident. https://www.eonline.com/news/1129062/so-you-think-you-can-dance-s-danny-tidwell-dead-at-35
  11. You and your daughters are sure to have a good time--the dancers are great, 2 Balanchine ballets (Brahms-Schoenberg alone would be worth it), plus the Graham solo. Tell us all about it after you see it.

    Lauren Lovette is 28. But the rest of the female principals are indeed over 30.
  13. There is an ongoing civil case. The defendants have asked that charges be dropped.

  14. NYT obituary: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/21/arts/dance/tobi-tobias-longtime-dance-critic-dies-at-81.html “Sometimes I felt that she was uncomfortably brutal,” the dance writer Mindy Aloff said by email, “but she provided a beacon of integrity to the field. She was open to elements of darkness, even ugliness, as well as to beauty, as long as the choreography and performance met her standards of craft and accuracy.”
