Not counting criticaldance.com, my favorite dance site must be Michael Phelan's <A HREF="http://www.baydance.com" TARGET=_blank>www.baydance.com</A> for its comprehensive ballet and modern dance events in the Bay Area. Let's put it this way, I plan my life around it! Michael will vouch for me!

Right - besides criticaldance - Ha - considering how I feel right now, this would be the appropriate site -- <A HREF="http://www.danceinjury.com/" TARGET=_blank>http://www.danceinjury.com/</A> -- just kidding, since I'm really just sore, but geez...<P>And it's not really dance, but it's yoga and I like it -- <A HREF="http://www.will-harris.com/yoga/" TARGET=_blank>http://www.will-harris.com/yoga/</A> -- I posted it before and people got all crazy with the fonts on another part of the site. They're pretty cool, but the exercises are my favorite.<P>I'm into Native Alaskan dancing, and think this little section about Alutiiq Dance is neat - <A HREF="http://www.mnh.si.edu/arctic/features/fisher/" TARGET=_blank>http://www.mnh.si.edu/arctic/features/fisher/</A> <P>Sometimes I look at the Japanese version of this site for kicks, since it's really the pictures I'm after anyway --http://www.nsknet.or.jp/~butohkan/KBKe.html<P>

well. i admire so many, but have less and less time to visit them, since being involved with this board!<P>in australia i appreciate being able to get lots of factual information from the AUSDANCE site: <A HREF="http://ausdance.anu.edu.au/" TARGET=_blank>http://ausdance.anu.edu.au/</A> <P>as a teacher, i very much appreciated the ballet central site, when i first found it: <A HREF="http://www.danceart.com/balletcentral/" TARGET=_blank>http://www.danceart.com/balletcentral/</A> <P>i like the gaynor minden pointe site: <A HREF="http://www.dancer.com/" TARGET=_blank>http://www.dancer.com/</A> <P>i love the marty sohl photo at that baydance site azlan mentions above! Image<P>on another subject, but i think the 'something-fishy' site, about eating disorders, is a marvellous model of just how much the internet can really help people in practical ways in their lives. it's HUGE and varied, and of use to others as well, particularly about behaviour issues.: <A HREF="http://www.something-fishy.org/" TARGET=_blank>http://www.something-fishy.org/</A> <P><BR>for little children i think Bianca's Ballet Barre is fun. i can't find the site right now, but i have made several whole pages of links to sites i admire, at my AICD website, so i'll direct you to the links pages there. Bianca's Ballet Barre is on one of those, fun for children aged up to about 12.:<P>BALLET links (incl. Bianca!): <A HREF="http://www.ballet.org.au/l/gloB.htm" TARGET=_blank>http://www.ballet.org.au/l/gloB.htm</A> <P>GENERAL DANCE LINKS: <A HREF="http://www.ballet.org.au/l/gloD.htm" TARGET=_blank>http://www.ballet.org.au/l/gloD.htm</A> <P>oh, and of course i love blandine, and the trocks: <A HREF="http://www.blandine.org.uk/" TARGET=_blank>http://www.blandine.org.uk/</A> <BR>the trocks site is accessible somewhere in the FUN STUFF forum.<P><BR>

Here is one that I use a fair amount:<BR> <A HREF="http://www.firststateballet.com/balletweb.htm" TARGET=_blank>http://www.firststateballet.com/balletweb.htm</A> <P>I also use Google a great deal - with the quotation marks.<P>

Image <P>Alvin Ailey's 'Revelations'<P>I don't know if we have covered this before, but I have just discovered a gold mine of information. The PBS site keeps the briefing notes associated with all its arts programmes since 1997. <BR> <A HREF="http://www.pbs.org/wnet/gperf/index.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.pbs.org/wnet/gperf/index.html</A> <P>For instance the Alvin Ailey section has three articles and a resource page.<BR> <A HREF="http://www.pbs.org/wnet/gperf/alvinailey/html/work.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.pbs.org/wnet/gperf/alvinailey/html/work.html</A> <P>Other dance features include:<P>ABT's 'Le Corsaire'<P>NDT III<P>Ballroom dancing<P>Zizi Je T'aime<P>Cats<P>Busby Berkeley<P>Swan Lake (both trad. and AMP)<P>ABT now<P>Suzanne Farrell<P>For a long time here at criticaldance we have talked about a Listings page. Can we use this topic as a place to include all those links we really like, with a view to selecting a number for our Links page when we get it going?<BR><p>[This message has been edited by grace (edited November 04, 2000).]

I can't resist even though I know this is off topic - but the Ailey picture - "Revelations" if I am not mistaken!! I have had the supreme pleasure of not only seeing that performed and encored live - but also was at a rehearsal - WOW

I can certainly vouch that Azlan plans his life around ballet. For Azlan, life = dance.<P>Does anyone remember a hilarious tongue-in-cheek ballet web site, I think Stuart mentioned it once.<BR>

Yes indeedy, Michael. That would be <A HREF="http://www.blandine.org.uk/" TARGET=_blank>http://www.blandine.org.uk/</A> And I vote that it goes on the favorite websites link. The ballet classes are a fabulous resource, and Father Vicky offers up such excellent advice for dancers. Also included are mouth-watering recipes.<P>Also, the exciting vacation site, Ekaterinaworld, where you can see the monumental minimalist sculpture of Alicia Alonso's bun as seen from above. <A HREF="http://www.ballet.co.uk/magazine/yr_00/may00/blandine_may_00_welcomehtm" TARGET=_blank>http://www.ballet.co.uk/magazines/yr_00/may00/blandine_may_00_welcome.htm</A>. <P><BR>[Edited by Azlan to fix URL]<p>[This message has been edited by Azlan (edited November 03, 2000).]
