Last night we drove two hours (each way for dinner and a show. The Moscow Festival Ballet presented "Swan Lake" at the Ferguson Center in Newport News, VA.

What a grand show! A plethora of feminine pulchritude (pretty maids all in a row) and not an underarm hair to be seen.

Put me in mind of the old BBC skit when the Royal Ballet did a scene from that ballet with all of the dancers wearing Wellington boots. Anyone recall it? I could not find it online, it was probably on Super 8.

One thing, though. The girls were always on their toes. I though, "Why don't they just hire taller dancers"?

Taller
If they hire taller girls then short-assed guys like Baryshnikov wouldn't be able to partner them. Hard to find tall men in America to do ballet. Their school coaches and dads all talk them into basketball. However, if you think about it, if your boy is tallish and athletic, put him in ballet, he will be surrounded by girls, AND his chances of being at the top of his field are much improved as there are less guys to compete against compared to football, baseball and basketball. And yes, you can get a scholarship to college as a dancer.(Which is as unbelievable as getting a scholarship based on any physical prowess).
