Tara Zahra of 'Dance-Insider' has a fine time at NYCB's 'Sleeping Beauty' with Jennifer Ringer and Jennie Somogyi:<P> <A HREF="http://www.danceinsider.com/f513_2.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.danceinsider.com/f513_2.html</A> <P>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited May 14, 2000).]<p>[This message has been edited by Admin (edited April 05, 2002).]

You know, it's funny how Jenifer Ringer (yes, the Jenifer is spelled with only one "n") dropped out of the scene for awhile only to make such a comeback. I remember being mesmerized by her dark eyes when she danced the Waltz Girl in Serenade.

Interesting review. I did rather wonder about the American prince. Since when is this country a monarchy? And aren't the princes usually French, Spanish, Russian, and English or something like that? I thought her comment about Abi Stafford developing birdlike nuances during the bluebird pas de deux was irritating. There is only one bluebird in that pas~~the girl is Princess Florine, and she is human! I agree that the music is at times too fast, and that the transitions are rather quick~~it's kind of like watching the ballet in fast forward on a VCR. Thanks for posting this! <P>------------------<BR>~Intuviel~

Intuviel, Americans sometimes forget we don't have royalty in this country. I guess Princess Grace was the closest we had. No, grace, I'm not talking about you.<p>[This message has been edited by Azlan (edited May 16, 2000).]

Here is an article from the New York Times on Principal dancer, Jennifer Ringer (I am spelling her first name with two "n's" because the newspaper did) on her return to dance:<P><A HREF="http://www.nytimes.com/2000/12/24/arts/24TRUC.html" TARGET=_blank>A Ballerina Ignites Again</A><BR>
