"Ballet.co is 3 today"
 
   What it is to be old!

For those who don't recall I did a piece last year for the magazine about the start of it all. It incudes some links to the earliest versions of the site (all rather embarrassing now of course!)...

   Bruce, my warmest congratulations to you from Hong Kong! I really admire your hard work on this enterprise. Are you going to celebrate this third birthday tonight with your London correspondents? (After all, the seasons of the Royal Ballet and Bolshoi finished last weekend, and I presume you don't have a performance to catch tonight.)

   My warmest congratulations too, Bruce. This site is a real achievement and a great credit to you. As a relative newcomer, I was intrigued to read of its birth (especially that you had to sink so much of your own cash into it; we need to discuss this whenever we have the promised getogether).

Best wishes,

Ann

   Bruce,

Many congratulations from Miami FL. I have been out of pocket for two weeks and its good to get home and read the threads.

While I am not overly active on the postings (lack of dance knowledge and pitiful typing skills), reading this board has really expanded my knowledge and given me a connection with like minded enthusiasts.

BTW, I will be posting info about Maximum Dance's new season in the next couple of days. The company heads for a 10 day tour to Columbia Aug. 10 (please say a prayer for my wife and the rest of the group) and we have some exciting additions for the season.

Thank you again Bruce.

Cheers,

shag

A late Happy Birthday to Ballet.co from me, too. I've often wondered how on earth anyone could build a site like this and still have a life, but I'm deeply grateful for all you've done: Ballet.co has been a real life-line. I discovered it last September, on my very first attempt to surf the net (on someone else's computer) - and came to the immediate conclusion that I HAD to go on-line at once.
Congratulations and many thanks.

   Just like to add my congratulations too for all your efforts. I moved to Washington from London 18 months ago, and your site has enabled me to keep completely up to date on the London dance scene. I even telephone friends in London with information I have found here (needless to say they don't have access to the site). Thank you again - I can no longer imagine life without the daily look at the "Postings" board.

Thanks everybody for your congratulations. Ballet.co is what is because of the help of lots of contributors, helpers and supporters. My great good thanks to all the following for their help over the years (it actually feels more like a lifetime!)....

Jane Simpson, Jenny Delaney, Lynette Halewood, Hiromi Matsumoto, Josephine Jewkes, Hampy Hampson, Blandine (Dame), Margaret Lumley, Eugene Merrett, Jim Fowler and Caz Atkinson (Man of the match indeed!), Stuart Sweeney, Renee Renouf, RBWB, Alison Penfold, Patricia Meja, Louis Servedio-Morales, Shirley Wilson, Kevin Ng, ... and also everybody else who has posted a review, thought or even lurks!

Some additions...
You dash off a list, you know you will probably forget somebody important, you rack your brains and then press the Post button.. and then on the way to work you remember some vital things...

I've squeezed a name or two into the list - my grovelling apologies for not having the memory I should. I also need to thank all the dancers and companies who have supported us. Without them where would any of us be!

   Many happy returns - long may you continue to flourish! - on each cheek (metaphorically)
