   I was to late for the bloody poll, but Adam Cooper is my favourite without a doubt. He was just mesmerising as "Odetto" the Swan in Swan Lake. I don't understand why they haven't done this all-male swan thing before. Swans are bad-tempered mean birds who have agression problems and an inferiority complex.They are NOT the dainty feminine thing we usually see. Adam Cooper is beautiful and telented and perfect as the swan. (And hey, everyone liked him as the black Swan in those leather pants, right?)

   how about something on the best dance magazine? Or favourite dance photographer? Or even which theatre has the best programmes! Programmes are for me my very own 'Spectre de la rose' which I can look at endlessly to take me back to a special performance.

   OK, ok.. next Monday's Mini-poll will be:

"Who's your favourite male dancer?"

So what we need now are names. I think I have to suggest the same rules as for the ballerinas poll. ie dancers seen in London that are London based or come in from overseas. We will have an all Uk one at some future time.

Ok, over to you....

Thanks but afraid I don't think Parker counts by the chosen criteria. Not to say he is not a great dancer etc etc

   I would like to put in a suggestion of Peter Boal (who I'm glad to hear is NOT definitely retiring) and, if we could hold this for a couple of weeks, for Damien Woetzel. I think people will be really excited. I don't think many of them have seen Damien here.

   Oops, sorry. Damien isn't London based and will be dancing in Edinburgh. But Peter Boal danced gloriously last summer at the Festival Hall so he should count. What about Roberto Bolle? Any suggestions from SFB?

   I'm talking BRB's Robert Parker, not the Trocks one. Surely BRB have appeared in London recently? However I see that the Trocks one has been nominated lower down. Myself, if we're talking about the Trocks would rather nominate Manolo Molina. This is getting a bit daft

Yes...

...but the criteria is London based or come in from overseas.

Its funny criteria I know but there is method in it. If we don't watch it we get 2 or 3 from BRB and some from SB and NBT etc up against Zelensky and the some of the worlds best. Which is not fair to anybody. Better to have a separate poll for uk only or soemthing. That was the thinking anyway.

   If the qualifications for entry are as I understand them we should include Stiefel and Corella.
I would say, however, that having to pick between Durante, Annaniashvili and Asylmuratova has given me a huge problem although I do not see a similar problem on the male side.

   Dear Bruce,

Is there an actual limit to your selection. I can see restricting dancers to the two main British ballet companies as they would be the most familiar to the readers, but even so, I'm surprised there is no Acosta.

Just curious.

   BTW, I assume that we're suppposed to be voting for our favourite dancer of that selection, rather than boycotting the vote if our favourites aren't mentioned (as at least 2 of mine aren't - too busy last week to post)!

   Well I really seemed to screw up on the Mini-poll this week - missed out Carlos Acosta, didn't have an "Other" category (something omitted form last weeks poll as well I think) and managed to called Irek, "Igor Mukhamedov".

Anyway it seems wise to start again... so I have. Do feel free to vote again of course!

In response to message #28
 
   I'm voting for "Other" because your list omits the Bolshoi's male star, Tsiskaridze. Best by a mile among the current male dancers, IMO. Beautiful long lines, excellent technique (1997 Moscow IBC gold medalist) & a magnetic personality. His Albrecht in NYC two weeks ago was a highlight of the 1999/2000 ballet season. Equally splendid as Solor, Mercutio &--especially--third movement of SYMPHONY IN C. - Jeannie

   People are always welcome to post a name/response about anything on the poll. Regrettably I have to keep the number of possible answers down to about 10.

Of course I'm always open to offers if others want to try making the calls for a few weeks!

Personaly I can't stand Tsiskaridze - far too narcissistic!

   Usually its best to judge a dancer based on skill. And who wouldn't be narcissistic in his position ? he's the best dancer in the Bolshoi

I do.

Skill is not just technique, its acting, attention to ones partner etc etc etc. His narcissistic ways, for me, detracts from some of these important 'skills'. I prefer to see somebody who concentrates on the role rather than preening his feathers.

Poll: Who's your favourite male dancer?

8 August 2000

A fair few amazing things here - other than perhaps the first slot.

Irek Mukhamedov continues to grab the imagination, though technically he is not in the first flush (he said trying not to upset anybody too much!). Carlos Acosta is understandable to me, but I'm also pleased that Kobborg has done so well, given that he has not been seen so much as we might have hoped. Adam Cooper has not been seen so much at all in London either but still linkers in many memories it seems.

The 'others' vote was a little higher then normal. There might have been a fair few votes for Hilaire who was probably an omission from the poll in the first place. The Bolshoi's Tsiskaridze was also mentioned. But it would be nice to know of any other 'others'.
