I'm modifying the base message in this thread to add links into the new pieces. Down here I'll mention the odd things... like we now have some Richard Finkelstein pictures coming through and I've some into the opening ceremony piece. Enjoy!

A bunch of new reports from Renee and some more images from Richard - particularly in Round 1, Session 2.

End of Round 1 - on to Round 2 and still nearly 60 competitors!

I you do nothing else do read Renee's review with David Howard at:

   May I say what a delight it is to read these reports from Renee. She is always informed and writes well. Her reports on dance events on the West Coast and in particular on the companies based there do tell us clearly what is going on and serve to whet our appetites for their visits and I find them invaluable preliminary reading.
Renee has very extensive knowledge and writes on a wide range of ballet activity and I always find her postings of interest and offer a complete report,she clearly enjoys the good things she sees. She will be critical on occasion but does set out to review objectively not look for harsh things to say which is a nice contrast to some.
These reports on the Jackson International Festival make good reading and Bruce is to be congratulated for making them available to us.

Thank you for such kind words Tim - how on earth Renee is writing and seeing so much I just don't know! She certainly makes me feel very humble.

I've never been to Jackson but I'm now starting to build up a clear picture particularly as Renee interviews more people who make it tick - today we have the man, Billy Mounger, who raises the money for it all and Marilyn Mills Beach who sorts transportation big time - 25 official Jeeps and nearly a 1000 arriving at the airport and to be sorted out. Big numbers on stage and off its seems...

So many thanks for the kind words! I am hoping that Richard
Finkelstein will have time to send along some atmospheric
photos shortly. He's very busy writing notes for the programs
and trying to keep his numerous shots well catalogued!

You also need to know that it's not often I'm in a situation where the telephone isn't ringing or an errand needs to be run,
or the garden needs weeding, there is a meeting to attend, a meal to cook, laundry to do, etc.

All I need to do is get out of bed, dress, eat, decide what's most salient for the day, write about it and attend performances
in the evening!

But thanks so much for the commendations!

Renee has just sent through 7 pieces covering the start of Round 2 and three interviews including one with Galina Samsova, the UK representative and ex Scottish Ballet artistic director. Also one we missed earlier - Round one, Session one!

I now count that we have 21 pieces - amazing.

Not to be outdone Richard Finkelstein has sent through more pictures to accompany some of the new interviews and some of the earlier ones also. And we have a picture of Richard himself...

Hats off to everybody in Jackson of course

12. "Injury During Round One "
In response to message #0
 
   June 27, 2002

Richard Finkelstein informed me
that Alexis Panos, 19, U.S.A.,
suffered a broken bone during her
first classical variation in
Round One. The audience, including
me, saw only the break in continuity,
and attributed it to lack of technique.

After managing her second variation,
Alexis' foot was X-rayed and the break
was discovered. A native of the
Boston area, she is home and undergoing
physical therapy.

Given this information this information
certainly tempers my evaluation of her
performance and calibre. I hope to see
her some time in the future under more
feliticious circumstances.

Renee Renouf

In response to message #12
 
   Just after I posted this, The Clarion Ledger
carried a picture of Alexis Panos, her leg
being held by a nurse who has been volunteering
for the Competition but whose position is with
the Baptist Medical Center. So, locally, and
in print, the Panos problem has been publicly
aired.

I've just added five more reports from Renee to the index above, including the link to the Jackson Results at:
http://www.danze.co.uk/dcforum/training/206.html

There are also another 4 interviews to come - more later. Renee meanwhile must have booked herself into the Betty Ford Clinic I shouldn't wonder. What a star!
