  1. It's so curious that this came out today, as I just yesterday brought back to The Ballet Herald homepage focus on the original article that started this thread. Like Lauren Lovette, I retired considerably young (at 27) and mostly because I was tired of my life being controlled by the many gatekeepers we dancers encounter during the length of our career.
  2. Will you be able to see them? If so, lucky you! MCB also had a program of outdoor performances and Orlando Ballet seems to still be going strong in the theatre. Amazing.
  3. Last night I watched and reviewed the company's fifth program, which I think is wonderfully curated. Each time I see Sarasota Ballet, I am more impressed; I really hope that their digital presence this year brings them more global recognition.
  4. This program features three Jorma Elo pieces filmed this month - including a world premiere - as well as eight archival recordings that should take Boston Ballet fans on a trip down memory lane Here's The Ballet Herald review.

  8. I love hearing about ballerinas who also want to be scientists As what happened when I interviewed Jordan-Elizabeth Long, only a couple of questions led to an essay-length response. Hope you enjoy reading Eastlyn's as much as I did!
  9. Hi Everyone, I have just published a story titled The Professional Ballet Community Adapts in a Pandemic World: Artistic Leadership, Dancers, and Educators Share Their Thoughts About the Past, Present, and Future in which 35 professionals of the ballet world respond to the following questions: 1. How have the events of the past year influenced how directors, teachers, choreographers, and dancers approach their jobs? 2. Although we all wish we had an eight ball, we know the future is unforeseeable. That being said, relative to the ballet industry, what predictions c
  10. What started as a couple of questions for Jordan resulted in an essay that I couldn't help but share. Her honesty as she shares her journey through this pandemic is uplifting and inspiring - I hope you will have a read and enjoy it as much as I do
