In the dance world, people are talking about Lewis Segal’s piece in the LA Times "Five Things I hate about ballet." They are calling it curmudgeonly. Check it out for yourself. I think that that his intellect is apparent in the piece, however the title really sinks. Who wants to read anything with the word "hate" in the title?
However, I have a confession to make. Even though I am a recovering "bunhead," these days, ballet bores me to tears. Especially a bunch of 16 year olds with no physical maturity of movement. You want somebody who has lived to tell you a story with their body. Enough of all these whack-whack high kicks and 75 pirouettes.
