Washington Ballet is clearly on dangerous ground over the dismissals. One wonders whether warnings were given about not meeting company standards - if not, the ground gets even shakier.

Paris Opera Ballet has a protection mechanism for dancers who serve as dancer representatives. They cannot be dismissed for two years (from memory) after the end of their service on the Board. The Kimberly Glasco case comes to mind and that cost National Ballet of Canada plenty after it became clear that the courts were siding with the dancer over wrongful dismissal.

WOW!!!!! That really blows my mind about the e-mail going out to the media and not any of the dancers. I would be seeing some serious RED :evil: at AGMA if I was one of those dancers. Not a good situation but ooohhhh what a great read these articles have been :shock: They just keep getting more and more unbelievable.
I guess we will just have to stay tuned for the next chapter. :arrow:

The school, which has an international reputation, was founded by Mary Day and run by her for 58 years until she retired. But when gala planners declined to seek her input for the event ? the celebration of her life's work ? she chose not to attend.


I'm not one of Mary Day's biggest fans, but her contribution to ballet education is undeniable, and I think such treatment is totally inappropriate.

Roger Arbrust reports in Backstage.com that the NLRB is requesting a September 7 hearing date on the unfair labor practice charges surrounding the dismissal of union organizers Nikkia Parish and Brian Corman:
