  1. Thanks, Tom. FYI, we have a lengthy thread on Miss Austen here.
  2. Critics are there to tell us what they see. If a dancer is visibly heavy to the detriment of the dance in that critic's view, it's fair comment. There are plenty of ways to convey this without getting cute, as Macaulay did. That said, Ringer got some favorable publicity and a book deal, so it didn't turn out too badly. As for Macaulay, the adage about sleeping dogs comes to mind. It seems to me that female bodies these days are frequently celebrated for their athleticism, as in the Copeland ad campaign for Under Armour. This strikes me as progress, although for ballet aesthetic questions arise. It's nice to see power and strength recognized as admirable qualities for a woman to demonstrate. The guys on the other hand, are taking a Good Thing way too far in my view.....
