Darcey Bussell has great pictures on her website (www.darceybussell .com ). Some change every month or so, too, and there are even videos of her dancing.

Can't say about other dancers yet. I'm new at this and just getting acquainted with everything! Good luck searching, Monika K!

We would love to have more photos but copyrighted images, which most are, cost money I'm afarid.

Now if the thousands who pass this way were to pay it would be very different. But we tried that a bit back and found that the vast majority simply arn't prepared to contribute like that. Which is a long way of saying that already people get more than they pay for!

   Bruce, I honestly think that the majority of people who visit here would be more than happy to pay a modest annual (or whatever) subscription. I don't recall being asked, but I do recall paying a one-off sub. about eighteen months ago.

Go on. Have another go.

If one would pay a lump sum how would you go about it? and approximatly how much would it be?. Ballet.co.uk is an exceptional service but and one of it's allure is that its free. I would'nt mind paying but it would be a shame as a majority of new users would be peturbed to use it if they had to pay.

   Maybe it's an idea to create a "paying-section" with access to pictures and the archive etc..
There are website who are working on this base.

I am just missing 1 thing on this site : photograph's !
(I can't help it that I have a very visual-memory)
But I do understand that this is a whole job and not easy with all the copyrights.

And...people will maybe become very demanding....
Please go on brainstorming !
