My relationship with Ballet Review has been a source of joy and satisfaction. The publication opened doors for me by virtue of the fact that people in the ballet world respect it – the caliber of its writers and the standards it sets.
For those like myself who were lucky enough to be a part of this, I want to express my gratitude to Arlene Croce who started it all in 1965 and to Ballet Review’s successive editors: Robert Cornfield, Francis [Mason], and Marvin [Hoshino]. And to those on the magazine’s Board [The Dance Research Foundation, Inc.], the long-time subscribers who have sustained it, and all those unnamed souls behind the scenes who worked tirelessly for fifty-five years to produce this publication because they were so damn passionate about dance that they were willing to do it for nothing.
Well, with a heavy heart and a tear in my eye, I…say, “Bravo. And thank you.”
