  1. Anyone know who is likely to be in the company as "NYCB MOVES" to Vail International Dance Festival? I just got tix and am so excited to break the ballet performance fast! DAAG, Sonatine, In the Night, Pictures at an Exhibition.
  2. I wonder if Symphony in C is appearing so that Maria K can have one last go. She was SO beautiful in the PDD the last time it ran.
  3. Each state keeps a registry. I imagine that is what will be used in the future to verify since the cards are so ephemeral.
  4. Per Robbie's Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/CNfzZA_D8Yj/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
  5. Wow!! He's just lovely in this role, and his youth shines! Effortless battement and so much spring in his step. Thanks for posting, Ivy!
  6. Do we know if the dancers will be paid during the cancelled seasons?
  7. Personally, I don't care for KM's dancing, and I find her social media empire insufferable, like that of most social-media-obsessed professionals. It is all incredibly narcissistic. But America loves a narcissistic celebrity. And yet, I watched almost the whole self-serving ("I'm an inspiration"), self-aggrandizing ("top-five company"), solipsistic ("trifecta of dance magazines') video right through like a sucker. It is like the Housewives - hard to turn away from. Can I get my money back?
  8. Let’s all hope the corona virus stays away so the show can go on! I feel terrible for all those SFBallet dancers who won’t get to perform in Midsummer.
  9. Casting is posted for the KC dates. https://www.kennedy-center.org/whats-on/explore-by-genre/ballet/2019-2020/new-york-city-ballet-68712/ Looks great! There's a whole new cast of corps dancers for Summerspace. What a great opportunity for them to push themselves and shine.
  10. Kowrowski's Diamonds PDD was breathtaking this past spring post-Farrell coaching. Maybe I was projecting a bit, but it was my most cherished ballet memory to date.
  11. I feel like there is a subtext in this article, but also in the general conversation about this situation, of unspoken, not-wanting-to-be-spoken, and/or “don’t you dare call me homophobic” homophobia. When I read about Ramasar’s “gusto,” or “machismo,” contrasted with Huxley’s reaction to a fall, I am left feeling like the community is still struggling with tremendous ambivalence about moving past traditional norms of gender. I just finished Michael Langlois’s book, and was struck by his description of the importance of gender-normative attitudes in a business that is decidedly queer. This “team Ramasar,” like the “team Martins” divide can feel like a pretty homophobic trope.
  12. Did Veyette dance today? Curious how he’s looking.
  13. I can't wait to hear from anyone who was at Tuesday's performance. How was Diamonds w Mearns/Janzen?
  14. I couldn’t agree more!
