Peter Martins<P><BR>New York City Ballet will salute Dance Theater of Haarlem in three shared programs on Thursday, Saturday night and next Sunday afternoon at the New York State Theater. In late March, Arthur Mitchell, ex-NYCB dancer and founder of Dance Theatre of Haarlem, and Peter Martins, a principal dancer at City Ballet who became artistic director of the company after Balanchine's death in 1983, talked with Jennifer Dunning of The New York Times backstage at the State Theater about the joys and perils of directing ballet troupes. Here are excerpts from a conversation punctuated by roars of laughter and sympathetic murmurs. <P>If you have not done so already, you will need to register (free) with the NY Times site first. This link will last for a week from the date of the posting.<P> <A HREF="http://www.nytimes.com/yr/mo/day/artleisure/harlem-dance.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.nytimes.com/yr/mo/day/artleisure/harlem-dance.html</A> <P>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited January 31, 2001).]<p>[This message has been edited by Admin (edited April 05, 2002).]
