  2. Here is a link to a page on the Mobile Ballet - where Kathryn will be dancing this year. We wish her a good season.
  3. A new article about Kathryn: http://www.worldartstoday.com/dance/moving-forward-by-going-back-home/
  4. Tours en L'air has a 2012 schedule posted. Thanks for telling us about it puppytreats! It's surely something to keep an eye on.
  5. I believe you meant "Tamara Geva" and not Vera Zorina. Zorina was wife #3, Geva was #1.
  6. Just last week, the New York Times posted a long and interesting article about Hypothyroidism and its relation to many problems, including psychiatric disorders. I too hope that her long absence will soon be over, and she can reclaim her place on stage and in our hearts.
  7. Thought I'd add this, which I found recently: Info about the tragic death of an NYCB alumna, a few months ago: By Judy Atchinson, the Schenectady Gazette: Dance honors
  8. And thank YOU, RG for your always interesting, always relevant photos!
  9. I was speaking recently to one of the directors of Kaatsbaan, which has several summer intensive courses in ballet for young people from all over the country. He is a former dancer, and when I asked him a similar question about dance students studying history, he said that in general, when they are young, all they want to do is dance, and be in the moment. Usually, after the major part of their career is over, they realize the importance of the history, BECAUSE THEY REALIZE THAT THEY ARE A PART OF IT!!!
  10. So sorry to hear. I knew she had suffered greatly.
  11. Marina Harss in "The Faster Times" her most recent blog entry: http://thefastertimes.com/dance/2011/04/21/some-thoughts-on-a-new-dance-collective/#comment-35
  12. Quiggin, please --- elaborate on this juicy-sounding seminar!
  13. Marina Harss has published a very thorough review of "Apollo's Angels" in The Nation. I've only been seeing and reading Harss recently, but I am very impressed by her writing, thinking and her vision.
  14. In the Spring, 1998 issue of Ballet Review there is a long profile of Osipenko by Joel Lobenthal. It has many mentions and photographs of Markovsky.
