   As someone who has is definitely in the 2-5 year catagory I am astonished at the poll results. But most poster here are fairly young. So it would seem that whilst the young argue on this site the older people amuse themselves by seeing the young at play!!!

I must say that without the advent of videos I would never have acquired the knowledge I have. I am too young to see have seen Fonteyn, Nureyev and Baryshnikov except on video.

This leads me to another suggest poll-what do you hate most about ballet snobs? My pet peeve is how they go on about how much better it was in 1950/60 when so and so was doing it. I think they size up their victim! They make sure that he/she was still in school or younger when choosing their favorite dancer/era. At least with videos I have someway of fighting back!

It happens in opera as well!
