This NY Times article will only last for a day:<BR> <A HREF="http://www.nytimes.com/yr/mo/day/news/arts/dance-notes.html" TARGET=_blank>www.nytimes.com/yr/mo/day/news/arts/dance-notes.html</A> <P>The gist is that Boston Ballet has announced the departure in June 2001 of Anna-Marie Holmes as artistic director of the company, a position she assumed in 1997 after a long association with the company. <P>There was a newspaper report that she had been forced out by the Director Geoffrey Babcock, but she said, "That's not true. We've asked for a retraction." <P>Ms. Holmes, was an internationally known ballerina in the 1960's and 70's.<P>Anyone, including out readers from the Boston area, know more about this or have any thoughts about Ms Holmes?<p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited 01-03-2000).]

Oh my. She was only recently mentioning, in a live chat on Voice of Dance, her strategic planning for placing emphasis on male dancers in Boston's school.<P>She also seemed progressive in wanting to use works by young choreographers, like Christopher Wheeldon and Val Caniparoli.<P>In response to one of my questions, she described her rise through the ranks at Boston Ballet, making her way from ballet mistress to finally Artistic Director.<P>Here is the full transcript of the chat:<BR> <A HREF="http://www.voiceofdance.org/Insights/vchat.a.holmes.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.voiceofdance.org/Insights/vchat.a.holmes.html</A>
