  1. Thank you for saying this! I too find the nisian photos distasteful. I have no problem celebrating a beautiful ballet body but his photographs cross over to titillation. Imo.
  2. I hope you’re right, Lady Bubbles! If (when?) Misty has to drop out of some of her performances Sarah would end up with Herman anyway. So awkward if there is a rift.
  3. If very short Copeland can dance with very tall Hallberg I don’t see why Sarah couldn’t be paired with Hoven. I don’t think that would be an extreme height difference. Would you say Hoven and Ahn are similar heights?
  4. This is what has me scratching my head. Surely Cornejo has some influence, particularly in his anniversary year, over who he partners. I’m completely befuddled and sad on her behalf.
  5. Hoping so much for this! I’ve always thought he and Schevchenko would be dream casting and hope Detroit goes well for them.
  6. This would be perfect since they were set to dance Giselle when she became injured. And frankly I think Hallberg owes it to his “home” company to honor her.
  7. Thank you, griffie! I’ve noticed this too and seems done by several of the most accomplished dancers. I’ve thought perhaps it was a new and accepted style that I wasn’t aware of. So glad to hear Sarah is carrying on the more purely classical arm positions.
  8. “Neglected home base” - I feel this too.
  9. This is my dream pairing. Hope to get to see them together at the Met in the future!
  10. Fabulous news and so deserved! Also hoping this means a Met debut! I’m thrilled!
  11. I wonder if BB will give her permission to video document class etc, which seemed to be an issue of disagreement when she was at Kremlin Ballet. I wouldn’t have thought she would be happy with an Artist contract.
  12. I think the ABT women do their chaines on a very high demi point and quite fast with the arms held down to their sides, hands placed just above the tutu. I’ve grown to like them when done in this way. My recollection when SB debuted was that they looked very clunky and slowed the momentum of the dance. I wonder if they’ve been tweaked over the ensuing years.
