I read that Macaulay Culkin studied ballet for awhile at SAB.

I think Home Alone would have been very entertaining with Christopher Walken in Culkin's role!

[In case the post immediately above is puzzling, I was responding to something that I didn't realize was on the first page of this thread. But I think it makes a good non sequitur.]

Without a doubt figure skater Kurt Browning! Just watched the A&E broadcast of Stars on Ice last night and thought again what a terrific dancer he would have been - I guess I'll just have to settle for him being a genius on ice!

I agree Noreen Arnold. Kurt Browning is my favorite skater. I saw him skate to the Mercutio solo music from R&J (Prokofiev) a few years ago. There were references to Cranko's choreography (which NBC does)in his performance.

Must be some ballet training,or an amazing ballet watcher's eye there.

Did we talk about Venus Williams yet?

What a shame that these skills were not used for dance:

Milene, Milan and a man called Ronaldo

There are at least 55,187 reasons why Milene Domingues is famous, and none of them have anything to do with her husband, a certain Brazilian striker. Anjana Gadgil for The Guardian becomes the latest in a long line of people to fall under the spell of that other Brazilian footballing superstar


The game had ended forty minutes ago. The team placed third in women's Serie A, Fiamma Monza, trounced lower league Reggina 4-0 on a bitterly cold night in Milan. All the other girls had put their goose-pimpled limbs back into their tracksuits and gone home with their boyfriends, husbands and parents.

But not Milene Domingues, the most high profile female footballer this side of the Atlantic, world-record holder for ball juggling and estranged wife of Ronaldo. She's still doing her hair.

An hour passes, and she's still "faccendo i capelli". But when the girl from Sao Paolo finally skips in, all five foot nothing of her, golden hair smoothed over her shoulders ... the wait was worth it. I've read that she has charmed press conferences packed with hardened journalists, so what chance do I have? In fact when I finally leave the club, buzzing with cappuccino and arrangements made to bring the girls to England, I too have fallen for her.

Antonio Banderas:

Banderas shows he's a song-and-dance hunk, too

By Desmond Ryan
Philadelphia Inquirer Theater Critic

NEW YORK - There is no shortage of big-screen heroics among Hollywood's reigning hunks du jour, but the challenge Antonio Banderas takes up in Nine requires a different kind of courage. <a href=http://www.philly.com/mld/philly/5641966.htm target=_blank>more</a>

From Miami to Madagascar

GEORGIA TASKER
Miami Herald

Mireya Mayor holds a mouse lemur, possibly the world's smallest primate, which she helped discover in Madagascar. This year she began dicussions with the Malagasy government about creating a national park to protect the little guy.

...

Mayor -- a former Miami Dolphins cheerleader, a University of Miami graduate and a Fulbright scholar -- eventually found the lemur and a new career, too. <a href=http://www.miami.com/mld/miamiherald/living/6182193.htm target=_blank>more</a>

How about Charlie's Angels:

Much-anticipated sequel sports sexy, hotly dressed people, action, adventure, giggles and ... a big promotion budget


Margaret A. McGurk
Cincinnati Enquirer

Maybe you've been too busy to catch them on TV, radio and magazine covers recently, but the Angels have been way, way out and about as their second big-budget, high-volume, action-packed, fashion-forward, comedy-minded mystery heads for the big screen. <a href=http://cincinnati.com/freetime/weekend/062703_charliesangels.html target=_blank>more</a>

Gee, without sports, she'd just be a scientist.

MATTI HUUHTANEN
Associated Press

HELSINKI, Finland - When James Brown (news) was winding down his show at a jazz festival, the crowds clapped to the beat of his 1970's hit "Sex Machine," then roared with approval when Finland's popular president Tarja Halonen walked on stage to jive with the King of Funk. <a href=http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/ap/20030718/ap_on_en_mu/finland_funky_president_5 target=_blank>more</a>

In an interview several months ago about the movie "The Two Towers", Orlando Bloom said:
Quote:
I really liked my part. Legolas is not just cool; his movements are smooth, like a cat. It was almost a ballet. Ian McKellen, Gandalf, thought I was the best Elf ever created. I walked around in a fantastic tight costume, but I would do it all over again!
I thought, well, as an Elf, he'd probably have good elevation and already he's okay with the tights.
