Is Ballet Over?

New York Times' post "When the Critic Says an Art Form Is Dying" is questioning "Is Ballet Over?"

This is one of my questions, when I check out recent programs through famous theatres.

Truly, recent ballet programs tend to be, what Jennifer Homans stated, "museums for the old."

Is that so?
You can see comments from some famous figures about that questions that includes pressures from board members and so on.

I personally just hope that ballet can open up new fields with old traditions but without oppression from that, even though it won't come as long as elders don't want change and want to be filled with a sense of their nostalgia...

I like Ballet, so I don't want to let it be over.

Performing Arts Center @ Purchase College

If you are purchase students or live around there, you cannot miss great opportunities at Performing Arts Center at Purchase College!

The Performing Arts Center is a theatre complex within SUNY Purchase College, and as we are going into the winter, the season of this year at PAC is getting exciting!
Recently, I personally attended Anna Deavere Smith’s “Let Me Down Easy,” her solo play representing a dramatic range of interview subjects, from artists and athletes to doctors, and I had such a wonderful night with great theatrical experience.
Importantly, I am a Purchase student, so I only have to pay $5 for a student rush ticket!

From this week, a national traditional winter program, “Nutcracker 2010” is coming! In this year, it will have principle dancers from New York City Ballet, so don’t miss it!
For further information about programs of this winter season at PAC, you can check HERE, or their Facebook page!
Do not miss, and get such a nice deal at Performing Arts Center at SUNY Purchase College!
