   The most over or under-rated choregrapher.
The one ballet you would most like to bin
To coincide with any anniversaries: the favourite work by any given choreographer

   Jim what has the West Midlands done to offend you!

Birmingham Hippodrome and Birmingham Rep both stage dance, as does the Wolverhampton Grand.

Bradford is now used more often then Leeds for dance, much to the dispair of the older Leeds residents.

And I believe Manchester has ballet at some of its theatres.

Jim the first line is not meant seriously.

   Provincial theatre votes are bound to be fiercely biased but I'd be interested to see how it goes. Begs a lot of questions here. Some stages are better than others for ballet. Some theatres have more ballet afficionados. Some theatres are downright uncomfortable or have bad sightlines. Hey ho

   Who or what first introduced you to ballet?
Family member took you to a performance
Colleague
School friend
Mother sent you ballet classes
TV or video.
Adult friend
Went in a group from work.

I have given examples from my own experiance plus some of the more obvious ones.
As we want to spread an awareness that Dance is for everyone, we might find out the best ways to draw others in.

   If you decided that this year, instead of spending your hard earned cash on going to see 10 different ballets/dance performances, you would see one ballet 10 times, which would (could) it be?

Personally, I think it would have to be Coppelia or Etudes - Coppelia for the music, Etudes for the infinite variety of performances you'd get from the principals.

   Thanks everybody for suggestions - as ever the tricky bit can be coming up with a question that does not have too many answers.. and then of course the possible answers themselves are fun to dream up.

I think we will run with Pauline's suggestion - but from next Monday. Are there any other possible answers that people can come up with?

After that I think Gerald's suggestion about over-rated choreographers might get an airing - But lets generate that list next week!

Please don't ditch the 'which ballet would you like to bin?' question as a possibility - I've been getting my list ready!!! Starting with Mr. Worldly Wise ....

   Just as well we go Pauline's suggestions. Jim's suggestion is a non-starter as I cannot participate. I have NEVER been to any provincial theatre except Birmingham and Washington DC!

I, of course, feel most deprived of being denied the world of regional ballet/opera! I suppose it is the cross I have to bear for living in London!

   Oh Eugene, how my heart thrills to your sentiments. As I said only decades ago in "The Importance of Being Earnest"

"I am glad to say that I have never seen a spade. It is obvious that our social spheres have been widely different."

   how about:
1. My sister/brother was in classes and i had to pick him/her up after school.
2. I saw one on television and my mother/father/sister/brother etc. wouldn't let me change the channel.
3. It was required for school credit.

i think it's a great mini poll idea

   There have been a number of productions of Giselle in the UK this year (Royal, Bolshoi, BRB, Scottish Ballet, Cullberg) - how about a mini poll in a few weeks time on best Giselle production this year, or favorite dancer as Giselle. (You need to leave this a few weeks though to give an opportunity for people to get to see the new BRB production)
