  1. Very interesting article. Thank you for posting it.
  2. Jean-Pierre, Thank you for allowing us to see your videos. They are very interesting.
  3. Hi KFW Thanks for your quick reply. Unfortunately the vhs is out of print and the cheapest that I can find it for is $250. So, I am going to have to put it on the back burner for a while. If I do order it, I will surely do it through your link. Again, thanks for your time.
  4. Hi I have been looking in the usual places for a DVD or VHS of Balanchine's Walpurgisnacht. I wondered if anyone could give me guidance. Many thanks.
  5. Daniil, Thanks for posting the list of the finalists. Would you (or anyone) happen to know who the judges are this year?
  6. Thanks for clarifying what is on the VHS of Balanchine Celebration, Part 2. Now if I only can find a place to purchase a copy....
  7. Thanks for your help. After reading your posts, I ordered the Jacques D'Amboise DVD. Amazon is out of the Balanchine Celebration, part 2 and I haven't found it elsewhere yet. Again, thanks.
  8. Hi I was looking in the usual places for a video or DVD of Balanchine's Stars and Stripes without any luck. I wondered if anyone knew where I could get a video of it. Many thanks.
  9. While this thread has turned into one about an 18 year old apprentice who has been cast as Juliet, it seems somewhat unfair to say that the 16 year old student Juliet "did not make it" when in fact she is out due to injury. Just my opinion, but I felt I had to say something.
  10. I have a friend from overseas who had a "sponsor" while he was a violin student at a major US conservatory. He found that the sponsor was a "support system". He was invited to the sponsor's home for dinner; the sponsor attended all of his concerts, etc. Even after he left the conservatory and went on to his career, he has kept in contact with his sponsor. It may be that some ballet dancers actually enjoy knowing their sponsors. Just because one is wealthy enough to support the arts in this way, does not mean that they are some kind of difficult personality. So I don't know if I would view sponsorship as a problem....it is just another way to raise funds for the arts.
  11. Thanks Helene and sandik for responding to my inquiry. I guess we'll just have to wait until September to see if there are other additions/promotions for the 2006/2007 season.
  12. Thanks for letting us know about Carla Korbes, drb. Is there any word on company promotions/additions for the 2006-2007 season?
  13. Have any of you had the chance to attend the NBS showcase that is taking place this weekend? If so, could you share some of your impressions? Thanks.
  14. I wondered if anyone could help me find the web-site for the Prague International Ballet Competition. Joseph Phillips won in 2002 and I can't seem to find any information about the present status of this competition. Thank you for your help.
