Amateur Ballet

Recommended Posts

What are your opinions on amateur ballet**?

All ballet I ever see (not much, alas!) is performed by very competent and experienced paid dancers. Is there room for those performing just because they like to? I believe a Washington Post critic famously likened it to "amateur brain surgery". Considering how many people go through basic dance schools I wonder whether there should be more of a "popular front" in ballet, even if it offends critics. Resisting the urge to say especially if it offends criitcs... :)

** not to be confused with the annual shows of local dance schools featuring three-year olds in fluffy pink tutus!
