On the Ground

Waking up in the morning, I sometimes feel like a pilot doing his pre-flight checklist. Today, the first thing I check is my neck. Somehow, I sprained it a couple days ago and it’s been in pretty rough shape since.

 
Writers & Readers

Underpressure

By Jillian Vanstone

When little girls and boys dream about a life as a dancer they think about the costumes and the lights, the thrill and the applause, the joy of movement, the storytelling, the fantasy. What children don’t imagine are the pressures of a career on stage.

Madness Ensues at the Ballet

By Deanne Kearney

The ballet is not a biography of Nijinsky’s life per se, nor does it unfold in chronological order. It begins with Nijinsky’s last performance on January 19, 1919, when Nijinsky danced publicly for the last time and called his performance a “Wedding with God.”

 
Emerging Dance Critics Programme

By Colleen Snell

In ballet, as in life, a dancer never knows which performance will be their last. The National Ballet of Canada’s (NBoC) Nijinsky opens with this dark thought.

On Criticism

By Philip Szporer

Choreographers have been unburdening their anger at dance critics on social media, taking them to task for negative reviews and registering disdain for the scribes’ perceived lack of insight. Our Montréal regional online editor Philip Szporer weighs in.
