Thanks to Brendan on ballet.co.uk for finding this article in The Daily Telegraph Motoring Section.<P><B>Dancing in the street</B><BR>Parenthood can change everything from our choice of car to the way we drive it. Ballerina Darcey Bussell talks to Sue Baker about baby seats and a new life on the road. <P><BR>Whatever kind of driver you are, your attitude behind the wheel is likely to change when you have children. Parenthood alters the way we conduct ourselves - and not necessarily in ways we expect. Although for most of us the presence of a child in the car instils heightened responsibility and safety awareness, it doesn't necessarily improve our driving. Some of us drive more slowly, others more distractedly.<BR> <BR><A HREF="http://www.motoring.telegraph.co.uk/motoring/main.jhtml?view=DETAILS&grid=P8&targetRule=5&xml=%2Fmotoring%2F2001%2F11%2F30%2Femfkids01.xml" TARGET=_blank><B>click for more</B></A><P><p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited December 02, 2001).]

OK - a confession to make. There is also an article on Darcey Bussell in the December issue of Good Housekeeping talking about how her Christmas will be different since the brith of her daughter and about her experiences of performing over the Christmas period. Some nice photos of her and Phoebe.<P>

Oh dear, Joanne! I'm afraid a confession of your sins will not be enough. Some sort of community service is the lightest sentence you can expect.<P>Shame that the stingy 'Good Housekeeping' doesn't give any articles or piccies on its 'Subscribe Now' website.

Stuart, being stingy is all part of "good housekeeping"

Article in The Guardian (found via FT site) on Darcey and her return to work and pregnancy in Dancers in general.<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>In 1835, when Marie Taglioni found herself pregnant after a brief reconciliation with her errant husband Alfred, the ballerina superstar was obliged to fake a knee injury to explain her disappearance from the stage. For years afterwards, un mal au genou was the euphemism used by dancers in the same delicate condition.<P>These days, most ballerinas announce their pregnancies with pride - among them Darcey Bussell, who has recently given birth to her first daughter and who returns to the stage tomorrow to dance the Sugar Plum Fairy in the Nutcracker. But although there are no longer any blushes attached to motherhood, the number of top dancers who opt to have babies is significantly small. Despite all the medical and social changes that separate Taglioni and Bussell, ballet remains a hard profession to combine with pregnancy.<P><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://globalarchive.ft.com/globalarchive/article.html?id=011212000661&query=ballet" TARGET=_blank> <B> MORE </B> </A><P>There has also been a series of photos in The Independent this week which I haven't been able to find online, of Darcey in rehearsal for The Nutcracker.

Interview with Darcey in The Telegraph.

Quote:
Darcey Bussell recently insisted that she is "a bitch - a nice bitch, but a bitch all the same". During her 13 years as a principal dancer at The Royal Ballet, it is an image she has failed to project. But you can see why she might want us to think it. For the criticism most often levied at Bussell (and, generally, the only criticism levied at her at all) is that she is, quite simply, too nice.

Are there any decent interviews of Ms Bussell when someone actually asks her about ballet technique, drama and inspirations rather than car seats for babies, her diet and plans post dancing?

Congratulations to Darcey and Angus on their news. My impression was that she was dancing better than ever since her return. I hope she does return to the Royal Opera House for the 2004-5 season.
