There's certainly a trend, but whether it's the dancers' inability to adapt or inappropriate stress caused by Webre is impossible to know. It would be interesting to find out whether the dancers with whom he's previously worked have had inordinate amounts of injuries and whether the WB dancers have typically suffered high injury rates when moving from one company (or one director) to another.

That would probably be American Repertoire Ballet dancers as that is where he was AD prior to Washington Ballet. I am sure there are people that have and are reading this that have worked with him in other companies when he came to set his choreography. I know his choreography has been set by him on MANY companies in the states. One of the more popular ones is the "Where The Wild Things" adaption. I know he set that on St. Louis Ballet within the last three years.

Anyone care to share experiences or anything???

Yeah! I hope it is equally abhorent to both sides and that no one can claim "victory", except maybe the federal mediator.

News from The Washington Ballet
Quote:
The Washington Ballet reached an agreement with its dancers and the American Guild of Musical Artists (AGMA), the union representing the dancers. After a complicated negotiation process, we now have a collective bargaining agreement in place - one that is fair and comprehensive, and one with which both the dancers and administration are satisfied. With the contract resolved, we can now focus on the bright future of our institution.

In addition, we have another piece of good news: we have rescheduled both The Bach/Beatles Project and 7x7:Women for May and June as we had hoped.

Great news! Fingers crossed for a relatively problem-free couple of years to get the company fully back on track.
