Dear Haglund, Such a sad article in The Atlantic about the retirement of Wendy Whelan, who is one of the most important dancers of the 20th-21st centuries. Thank you for the link. It seems a no-brainer to me that she would teach at SAB. But I don't know the back-story or if that would be enough to pay the bills.

Thank you for the reminder about the Guggenheim program and also for posting the access link.

I agree, Angelica, that teaching at SAB should be a no-brainer for Wendy. She would also be the ideal person to be in charge of the Wheeldon and Ratmansky reps at NYCB as well as some of the older pieces on which she put her unique stamp, e.g., The Cage, and a number of the B&W ballets. With the loss of Janie Taylor, it appears that NYCB might be down to a single dancer who can carry the role of lead Novice insect in Robbins' masterpiece that Wendy danced marvelously for so many years.
