"Next Mini-poll - for 31st July"
 
   The next Mini-poll is going to be (thanks Jane S):

"Which is your favourite ballerina?"

Some possible answers...
Asylmuratova
Ananiashvilli
Bussell
Guillem
Ferri
Platel

But we need to select a list of 8-10 and to get the most representative sample we can. Although it's not stated in the question all the dancers should still be active - so no Fonteyn's etc

ta!

   Lets have some none London ones as well.
Unless you want two polls- one of RB dancers and and ENB, and one of BRB, NBT, and SB.
From BRB I would suggest
Batchellor
Zamora
Madgwick


I am suffering from withdrawal symptoms, work and other commitments have meant I could not get to London to see the wealth of Ballet you have had, and we have had none since before Easter. Roll on the completion of the Hippodrome Refurb.

   I find this one impossible to answer !

I think it might be easier (and probably rather more revealing) if you asked who is your favourite Juliet, or Giselle, or Aurora. I'd expect different preferences for the different roles. (Though I think your ten or so candidates could be the same).

How about favorite Auroras for a start ?

There are so many ballerinas and they are all so different. People like different dancers for their different qualities. How will you decide who will make it to the short list. Will it just be the dancers from the big ballet companies?

And I thought this was sorted - sorry Jane S

Er.... for teh avoidence of doubt if you find you share a first name with someone can all concerned move to use first name and and an appropriate addition. Also to use this on Postinsg and Chat. That way we know who is who! (Which reminds me that I need to change my signature on Chat - someday I will be perfect!)

   OK I've decided to run with a list of ballerinas who have danced in London in the last 2 years (or so) and are either London based or have come from overseas. We will have a separate poll for the UK, non-London, based ballerinas at some future time. Yes I know its contorted but I'm trying to be fair!

Now doubtless I have missed some favs off. But all I can say is that if you don't like the Mini-poll please come up with a great question and great answers 'cos its not as easy as you probably think. Thank you muchly

   Sounds great Bruce, but you don't appear to have changed the 'Most unsuitable story for a ballet' question at the head of the page. Even more intriguing is that someone obviously considers Nina Ananiashvilli an unsuitable story for a ballet!

   Dear Bruce,

Based on those who have danced in London over the last two years I would like to include to the list NYCB's Maria Karowski for her fine Agon pas with Albert Evans and a stunning turn in the Rubies solosit role.

Thanks, but the poll is now running and we can't really change things part way through.

But the suggestion underlines the need to come up with the right list of poll responses in the first place.... talking of which the next poll question is defined and we are looking for possible answers. See more at:

Poll: Which is your favourite ballerina?
31 July 2000

Guillem is the one it seems and getting better all the time of course.

Nice to see RB dancers (or ex in the case of Durante) doing so well with 4 of the top 6 slots.

Note that these are all ballerinas who are either London based or who have come from overseas to perform in London. We will do a UK only ballerinas poll another time.



Our Mini-poll page also includes all our old Mini-polls:

   So do you like all the great ballerinas absolutely equaly?

And I know it depends on the role, but we all have favourites - well most of us do anyway.

Surely its interesting and entertaining to know if more people like Dali or Picasso? Whatever, it's not that serious of course and nobody would suggest that the results of polls be used for Arts Council funding...
