From Lewis Segal of the Los Angeles Times in the Boston Globe: Purists may scoff, but DVDs and videos foster dance appreciation

It seems absurd to object:

Some of the dancers are no longer active/alive. If the younger generation wants to see Fonteyn and Nureyev, for example, they have to watch tape.

Not everyone has access to live performances. Age, disability, living in rural areas, etc. can limit ability to attend performances. Should someone not be able to see ballet because they don't live in a major city?

Local companies are not 12 months a year. SFB, for example, runs for about 4 months + nutcrackers. Should I not watch ballet for the other 8 months?

Anything that promotes love for dance is good.
