  1. Welcome to Seattle! I’m always happy to read more writing about ballet here. If you like, check out seattledanceannual.com…there’s access to a free, online book about some of the dance that happened here last year. I’m looking forward to your piece on the Jewels coaching. I was there too. What a charmer!

    1. Thank you Rosie! I’ve heard so much about you and SeattleDanceAnnual already and would love to meet at some point! He was a charmer, wasn’t he? Now I’ll always think of him and Danilova when I see a man bow…

  2. Hi!

    Comments don’t seem to work on your d’Amboise coaching post, so I thought I’d answer your question here. Carrie Imler was working with William Lin Yee, and Elizabeth Murphy was working with Steven Locke. At least according to a colleague who was there — I had to miss it, and so am doubly glad to see your report.

    1. Hi Sandi! Thanks for pointing that out…Not sure what was going on but it should work now. I’ll update the post accordingly!
