"Mini-poll on repeated seeing of a piece of dance"
 
  
This thread is for comment or observations on the Mini-poll that asks:
"What makes you go time and time again to see the same piece?"

So vote and then perhaps tell us exactly why you went to see The Nutcracker ten times one week!

   Presumably repeatedly seeing a piece of dance just 'coz you happen to love that piece counts as "other"?

   Thank you.

That did come up, but I thought to have such an option would make it confusing - since some of the choices offered are effectively beneath what's a pretty big umbrella of "Like piece". But Mini-polls aren't perfect devices. If many feel the same way I can amend - but after a day it gets too confusing for everybody I think.

   Bruce, Posible topic for a mini poll: "How many hours a week of your firm's time do you spend browsing ballet.co?" (Or how many times do you log on?").

   Jim, the first half of that question only counts for those who have firms! I'm a freelancer, so when I log on at home I'm only using my own time - though I do still visit the site when I'm working in clients' offices too. However, many people are presumably retired or don't work or work in jobs where they can't access the internet (for example, cook, shop work, bus driver etc.), so the question would be irrelevant.

As for the second question, I agree, it would be fascinating to know. But perhaps the site knows the answer already?

   I agree, Steven, I was was just being a bit runcible! But "How many hours a week" would be quite interesting
We have already had "How many computers do you use?" (For me it's routinely 4!).

   I'm my 'own boss' but....need to catch up with work during weekend if I wasted too much time on Ballet.co or went to ROH during week
Be carefull...this can be a tricky question...there has been a lawsuit in my country for neglecting work in an equal case !
Future has still lots of surprises to reveal : a befriended ballet-website has now the facility to display "Who's on-line"...great they thought about those who want to hide too

   Well, that's my reason for seeing things again and again! I have to love the piece to want to see it repeatedly.

   Me too (except in the case of Manon, where the RB's principals in recent years have generally been so good in the role that I've had to see them, despite the fact that it's not a particular favourite of mine).

   Now that a clear pattern has emerged, I'm starting to find it a little worrying that "love of a particular cast" has overtaken "different interpretations". Does this suggest that a lot of us are getting very fixed in our opinions and unwilling to try anything different?

Alison (who keeps booking for Tamara and Alina only because she's already seen virtually everyone else in the same roles!)

   When I was younger living in London, I just went to the ballet once a week on the same day. In that way you just take what comes and see who is available. It stops you getting star struck. Now having to plan my journeys to London by train I have many more problems.

   That's how I began seeing the royal - you can get some suprises about who you like and who you're supposed to like.
