  1. Me again! I didn't get to see any more of Round I, unfortunately. I wanted to watch Danny Tidwell, Ashley Canterna, and Melissa Hough perform, but since they were dancing in the afternoon, my mom couldn't get away from work to take me. I cried about that one for a while. I will be going to the first session of Round II tomorrow, and will try to update you all ASAP (but I'm grounded from the computer indefinitely for mouthing off to ole Maw and Paw ) I'll also be attending the winner's Encore Gala, so I'll let you all know how that goes as well. (Round 3 tickets have been sold out for a whi
  2. I went to both the opening ceremony and Session 2 of round one. The opening ceremonky was modeled after the olympics, with the torch and all. (Rasta Thomas carried it) All the Mississippians gave their speeches (mayor of Jackson, governor of MS, etc.) After intermission, the dancing begun. Miami City Ballet performed an okay "Rubies", after whom Adrienne Canterna danced a variation from Esmeralda, which was very disappointing. It was the one with the developpes that smack the tambourine, only she couldn't manage to reach her leg up there, therefore having to move the tambourine down. Her piro
  3. We all know the story of some of the greats' stage names, Suzanne Farrell(sp?)was once Roberta Sue Flicker, or something like that. I thought it would be interesting to talk about stage names? Do YOU have one? I've been looking for one...how does Anna (pronounced onna) Louise sound?
  4. Does anyone know of any other places where they have been mentioned/interviewed? I would be interested in finding out...thanks alot!
  5. Does anyone know where I could obtain a copy of that book? It would have to be online, not too many good bookstores where I live.
  6. Yes, I did see the dance magazine issue. There was also an article about them in Pointe Magazine...not the latest issue, but the one before that. I think that on Pointe Magazine's website, there may be an interview with them or a behind-the-scenes article under "Web Exclusives"
  7. Tee Hee....if I named him Maxim, I could call him Maxie, and if I named her Irina, I could call her Rinie! I believe I am over-obbsessed. I plan on writing them a letter sometime in the near future (I hope it gets to them!)
  8. Kate, I'll take it! If you think it would fit me....but I'd rather someone who really needs it get it.
  9. I don't think that this provocative dancing is appropriate for ANY age in a recital. I feel like even "senior" students and "sexually mature" teenagers should, well, keep it to themselves and in the clubs. I also feel that it is the choreographer's obligation in choreographing dances for students in a recital to keep the risky dancing to a minimum. Not only does it spoil the reputation of the studio for the general public to see the dancers performing in such an innappropriate fashion, but also for the dancers.
  10. Lately, at my ballet studio(which also offers hip hop, jazz, and tap) I have noticed some extremely risky and provocative dances being performed. (not by me!) Many of our JAZZ (obviously not classical) dancers are performing extremely provocative movements, often at 9 and 10 years old! I quit jazz at this studio since then, but I just wanted to see if I was the only one who is alarmed by this.
  11. Hi everyone! I don't know about all of you, but I like ballet jokes, especially funny ones! So, I thought that some good, clean ballet laughter sounds like fun! Here's one that's not too funny: Q: How many ballet dancers does it take to change a light bulb? A: 50, 1 to do it, and 49 to say they could have done it better. Ta da!

    Henry Danton

    Wow! I didn't think anyone would be interested in this! Do you know Mr. Danton personally? Just wondering. I can't find the earlier posts about Mr. Danton. I tried searching, but it only gave me this.

    Henry Danton

    Does anyone know who Henry Danton was? He's my teacher, and he's not very well known in today's time, but in the 40's and 50's he was quite famous....consider this a scavenger hunt for info, if you have time to surf the net and stuff....I'll letcha know if you're right!
