brave woman basheva!
I will amend the Michael Corder sentence, because it has caused you such offence.
LOL <img src="http://www.criticaldance.com/ubb/smile.gif" alt="" /> -no need, stuart!
there is nothing wrong with the dancers, they're fine. The real problem is the shortage of good new choreography.'
stuart i think this is a fashionable 'line', and i'm just sick of hearing it....i don't get the impression that people who say this actually stop to think - it's just a fashionable thing to be saying in recent years.
in return, i COULD quote you from this july interview with marilyn jones OBE (stanton welch's mother, ex-director of the australian ballet and ex-prima ballerina of that company):
Do you agree with the view that there are no truly great ballet choreographers today?http://forum.criticaldance.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=4&t=000312
"No. Absolute rubbish! It's like classical is going forward and across. Ballet is more demanding than anything, and just as exciting as anything."
neither your quote nor mine proves anything, however - just two people's opinions...
please: who is the McGregor you refer to?
