  1. I also enjoy Brandt's Instagram posts. I especially love watching the coaching sessions she has with Dvorovenko, and hearing Dvorovenko's corrections. What I really cannot stand are the posts (done by other dancers, NOT Brandt) featuring half-naked photography by this guy "Nisian". Maybe I'm being prudish, but I find them very distasteful.
  2. Thanks @bellawoodI watched it 3 times. Lovette's tight chainés are so beautiful.
  3. Thanks ABT Fan & fondoffuettes Sounds like waiting it out a few more months is a good idea.
  4. Tickets are on sale! Wish I could look into a crystal ball and see which performances are most likely to feature Teuscher or Schevchenko. I'm leaning towards opening night. This will be my 1st trip to the Michigan Opera Theatre - anyone know how liberal of an exchange policy they have?
  5. THANK YOU FauxPas, for staying up late to give us your full review! It was a delight to read, and I'm so happy for Sarah. She posted a clip of herself doing fouettes several months back, and I kept my fingers crossed, hoping that the opportunity would come. https://www.instagram.com/p/BtEKX1lnLSI/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
  6. Bless you, FauxPas for these updates! I am 3k miles away in San Jose, CA, and would give anything to see Lane perform SL.
  7. Kent Becker has posted some really great, high-quality photos. http://www.notmydayjobphotography.com/AmericanBalletTheatreCurtainCa/2017-Met-Season/i-JV32B8f
  8. Given the resurgence of Russia in popular culture, maybe she could go the same route as Irina Dvorovenko and venture into acting? I think she has a lot of potential for film and TV.
  9. I agree. It's especially difficult to navigate if you're on a Macintosh, as the only browser that seems to show everything properly is Internet Explorer - and that hasn't been updated for ages (and Microsoft has even said they are discontinuing development on the Mac version). Anyway, I sent an email to the NYCB office asking them about it, and this is the reply I received : I hope it comes out soon.
  10. Every morning, I look forward to sitting down in front of my laptop with a steaming hot mug of coffee and scrolling through all the new board posts and ballet articles, so I would like to say a big thank you to Ari - you've saved me from countless hours of searching the web for dance articles every day. Thanks to your hard work (and that of everyone else who posts to the 'Links' section), I have been kept up-to-date with news from all of my favorite dance companies, and have grown increasingly well-informed about those I previously knew nothing about. I wish you the best of luck in all your
  11. I don't know much about the book publishing business, and was wondering - how do publishers decide which dance autobiographies to reprint? Seeing as the University Press of Florida decided to reprint Farrell's autobio, does anyone think that there's a chance they would pick up on Merrill Ashley's? I'm very curious about this, because.....well, on my meager budget as a student, those prices for a used copy seem to run very high (and rightfully so, considering Ashley's status in the dance world.) Nevertheless, I've been wanting to read it for years, and unfortunately I can't find a library in
  12. In addition to Giselle, I will also be attending the Gala. This will be my first time seeing Theme & Variations and Ballet Imperial - I can't wait! I noticed on the Music Center's website that it says there will be a "free pre-performance talk" on hour prior to curtain (only for Giselle). Because I usually get stuck in a time crunch, I've never had the opportunity to attend one of these - until now. Can anyone tell me what they're like? Do any company dancers make an appearance?
  13. Thanks, carbro and marga! You saved me from hours of googling. Jacqueline- thanks for the tip, I will remember to check it out next time I'm at the supermarket.
  14. From an article in today's Sunday times (URL posted by Mme. Hermine in "Links") : I know Julie Kent and Victor Barbee have a son, but I'm clueless as to who is the third mother in ABT. Does anyone know who?
