Because Elaine Baldwin steps to it, the Charleston Ballet works

By Bob Schwarz
Charleston Gazette

Elaine Baldwin takes the checks from the dance students and walks the money to the bank. She writes press releases for the Charleston Ballet and creates the brochures for the American Academy Ballet dance school. She paints sets for ballet performances and sells ads for the programs. <a href=http://www.wvgazette.com/section/People/2004080324 target=_blank>more</a>

By ERIKA KINETZ
The New york Times
August 15, 2004

"Much to my husband's consternation I kept bidding," said Ms. Courts, who has been on the board of the Atlanta Ballet for 20 years.

Five minutes and $3,000 later, Ms. Courts held a photograph of her prize: John Welker, the evening's star, whom she had purchased the right to "sponsor" for the next year.

Jane Attenborough
Energetic administrator who championed the arts
by CLAUS MOSER for the Guardian

Within the arts, she dealt with all the applications that came our way, showing judgment and wisdom in advising trustees on what to do. Moreover, she carried the main responsibility for all our major arts projects, including links with the Royal Opera House, the National Theatre, the Royal Court, the Sage in Gateshead, and many projects offering opportunities for new audiences - one of Jane's passions.
