Hey Stuart,

I guess you are right. This guy doesn't know the use of the word indeed. To him, anyone studying ballet is a "ballerina". He should have (at the very least) used the term "ballet-student" in order to be more accurate.

An article on Charlize Theron:

Quote:
THERON NEVER WANTED TO BE FAMOUS

Contact Music

The MONSTER actress, 29, was oblivious to the culture of celebrity while growing up on a farm in South Africa - and only learnt about fame when she won a place to study dance at THE JOFFREY BALLET SCHOOL in New York as a teenager. <a href=http://www.contactmusic.com/new/xmlfeed.nsf/0/6B091F1ACAFE56E180256EF30057D67C!opendocument target=_blank>more</a>

What a career it is :)

Former dancer takes the Khmer crown, with Hun Sen's approval

by JAN McGIRK
the Independent

Sihamoni, a 51-year-old former ballet dancer, was selected by a special government council which met in the royal palace near the banks of the Tonle Sap river. The apolitical prince won the approval of Prime Minister Hun Sen, the strongman who actually rules the impoverished kingdom, and the coronation is planned for 29 October.

The powder room
Want to know how to give your reception that little added extra? in The Times Kate Spicer hears from a make-up girl who had a brilliant idea.


Women have always treated the ladies like a no man’s land, a place where the barriers and bitchiness of womanhood come down and two strangers will bond over the texture of a Stila lip gloss, the pigment in a Nars blusher, or a simple, “I really like your top.” Given our ability to turn a lavatory into a private boudoir of chat and beauty, it’s a wonder that nobody thought of the Powderpuff Girls sooner.

"Women have always treated the ladies like a no man’s land...two strangers will bond over the texture of a Stila lip gloss, the pigment in a Nars blusher, or a simple, “I really like your top.”

It's very similar in the Gents. A typical conversation might be: "I have a tie with egg stains just like."

Behind the counter
by MARISA DUFFY for the Scotland Herald

When a neck injury forced dancer Stephanie Laird to end a glittering career with the Royal Ballet in London, she was heart-broken.
However, years of performing in intricate costumes had given her an appreciation of beautiful clothing which, coupled with childhood memories of her mother's prolific knitting, led her to open a hand-knitted cashmere shop.

Your waking nightmare
by MARY BRENNAN for the Scotland Herald

When it later emerged that Murphy, who'd been one of the first (and few successful) dance-makers to integrate film and mixed media in his choreography, was intending to write for the stage . . . well, disbelief turned to sheer bewilderment.

Former First Lady Betty Ford, widow of the late president:

Quote:
Born Elizabeth Anne Bloomer in Chicago in 1918 and raised in Grand Rapids, Mich., Mrs. Ford was passionate about dance. Not long after she graduated from high school, she studied with Martha Graham in New York City, becoming a member of the Martha Graham Auxiliary Group. In 1941, back in Grand Rapids, she became a fashion coordinator for a department store and formed her own dance group.


More in the NY Times

Does snyone know (well, someone surely knows; I mean does anyone here know) if "the Martha Graham Auxiliary Group" was the equivalent of today's Martha Graham Ensemble -- the second company?

Vanessa Carlton

"Vanessa Lee Carlton (born August 16, 1980) is an American pop singer, songwriter, and pianist best known for the single "A Thousand Miles" from her platinum-selling debut album, Be Not Nobody (2002)".

"She attended the School of American Ballet in New York City. The stress and rigid training of the ballet lessons proved too much for her, and she chose not to become a dancer upon graduation".

She is seen dancing (and of course, playing the piano) in one of her latest videos - I think she is quite good!
