  2. Welcome to Balletcoforum’s first virtual… Night At The Ballet -- LIVE EVENT THREAD -- Hello everyone! So lovely to see you. Glad you could join us at the Your Living Room Theatre for the opening night of our virtual trip to the theatre!

  5. In order to try and keep track of all the dance-related streamings which are being shown at the moment, as an experiment we have reinstated the forum's calendar feature, with forthcoming showings listed in date order in the right-hand column of all the sub-forums, or below them if using a smartphone (the list of new threads can still be accessed from the Home page). Note that this is a community calendar, which means that any member can add to it! Do bear in mind that this is meant to be a rough guide only: at the moment, we are only posting dates, plus company and production, ra
  6. Karen Kain, Artistic Director of The National Ballet of Canada, and Barry Hughson, Executive Director, today announced the cancellation of the June season.

  7. Dear all, I had tickets to a number of ballet shows in the coming weeks, and needless to say a lot of them have understandably been cancelled which has made me very sad. I expect I’m not the only forumite in this boat. We’re also most likely facing an extended period of relative social isolation, with some people already needing to squirrel themselves away in their homes. With that in mind, on the night I would have been seeing Acosta Danza, I’d like to invite you all to join me for: A Night At The Ballet 7.00pm, Saturday 28 March “Er…” I he
  8. At a time when we are continuously inundated with news that incites feelings of sadness, anger, and confusion, I wanted to create a space where we can be reminded of the beauty that awaits us when go to the theatre once again and of what we can do/read/watch/learn right now to keep the love of ballet and its beauty in our souls: #TheCurtainWillRiseAgainTTB Your contribution to the content is appreciated!
  9. NEW YORK CITY BALLET As New York City Ballet continues to prioritize the health and well-being of our patrons, artists, staff, and the community at large, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Spring Season in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19. While we are deeply saddened that the Company’s artistry will not be seen on stage this spring, the current pandemic has left us with no other choice. The cancellation will include all performances and events, including the May 7 Spring Gala, as well as the Company’s public pro
  10. We held what seems to have been a quite successful virtual ballet evening yesterday evening - see the original announcement thread here: and the discussion thread here: Now that people's lives are presumably starting to settle down into some sort of pattern, I wonder whether Saturday evenings are best, or whether we should try a different time/day next time? If I've got this poll right, you should be able to select as many options as you like as to what suits you (responses should be anonymous). Assume something like 2-3 pm starts for matinees and 7-7.30 pm U
  11. This is available now for streaming. Recorded about 10 years ago. Where are the students who appeared in it now ? I'm sure that some people out there will know. And, by the way, why do I have nagging memories of Martin Harvey in Peter and the Wolf ? An earlier version ? Seems like there was one back in 1995. Your memories please ?

  13. Hi Everyone. Although an unfortunate topic, it is a real one. I have created this page on The Traveling Ballerina dedicated to how coronavirus is affecting the ballet industry.

Thank you so much!
