That was hilarious. And uncomfortably close to the Brussels bureaucrats modo di fare... <P> from a 'European'.

Sarita, you'd be surprised how quickly we have all got used to the hard hats. In fact the white ones for the RB Odettes look rather fetching. Indeed many have said that they are the best design element in the whole of the RBs production.<P>The fouettes are now spread over the performance starting with the middle of the white act when Odile dashes on, does the first 5 and then dashes off again. However, it does mean a lot more opportunities for applause for the leading lady. <P><p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited April 14, 2001).]

I suspect that hard hats aren't anything new in ballet.<BR>I mean, have you ever had a good look at the costumes in Spectre de la Rose? What about Nijinsky's headdress? All those roses on it don't fool me.<BR>Still, if you are quite determined to leap in and out of windows all the time...

ok - the thing I really want to know is....<P>When we are doing Swan Lake do we still get to wear those feather headpieces around the outside of the hard hats?<P>and how do I get my hair bun inside? I need practical answers to practical questions.

Frankly, I welcome the new rules.<P>There was nothing so distracting during a variation as having a ballerina drop on top of you. It generally upset my timing, and it certainly made it difficult to maintain my princely demeanor. <P>THEN, to have to rechoreograph during the variation itself to jump OVER the supine danseuses was terribly inconvenient. <P>I would suggest that the EU commissioners also consider the inherent dangers of working with only one foot on the floor. To minimize workplace danger, I strongly support a two-feet-on-the-floor-at-all-times rule.

However if you've ever had to change hairstyle in the middle of a performance you'll realise what a godsend the hardhat is. Just stick the wig/hairpiece on the hat and bobs-your-uncle instant glamour. It doesn't take as long as one would think to adjust to the dome shaped head appearing onstage.<BR>Basheva, if you coil your hair on the top o fyour head to fit in the top o fthe hat, you're bun worries will be abated.

The articleis almost certainly made up, I know this because I made it up on a very slow news week. I hope every one enjoyed it though.<P>I think harnesses and hard hats may liven up the Royals shows.<P>regards<BR><P>------------------<BR>Neil Nisbet<BR>Director<BR>S4[one] Dance Company<BR>www.s4one.co.uk
