1. I'm really excited that this kind of conversation can take place on this board. I left another dance site
because this would've been squelched, deleted and locked up long ago! <BR>2. I appreciate Michael's passion about this matter and I'm sure if we ever meet we'll have a contest about who is the MOST passionate about this incredible art form called dance/ballet.
<BR>3. I've been with the company I work for for only 4 months and I've seen 10 people go- some quit,some were fired, all weren't happy with the direction they or the company is going in. My point, Glasco isn't the only one who has faced this "injustice" but her story can and has inspired some really wonderful discussions and threads here about "upper management" and it's abusive nature.
<BR>4. And yes, I agree with those that suggest Michael use his passion in a more positive manner and create some goodness from it - he obviously cares very, very much about it. In my book it's all Kharmic and all those involved in the Glasco affair and others like it will "face the music" one of these days and when they do we'll all be happily involved doing what we love to do- encourage,promote and shout from the mountain tops why we love the wonderful world of ballet, dance and theatre. <BR>xo<BR>DH <p>[This message has been edited by DavidH (edited November 11, 2000).]
