Does ABT have lifetime contracts for its principals, like how Bolshoi did until very recently when it was finally done away with? Now over there at the Bolshoi, the past their expiration date dancers who collect paychecks and don't do much else are required to demonstrate their technical fitness in order to have contracts renewed. Though bribes and nepotism may still part of culture there, at least on paper and publicly they are trying to something. Kent seems to have a lifelong contract at ABT, can't say I blame her for taking a fat paycheck since no one is stopping her from doing so. It is just wrong that Paloma is retiring ahead of Kent.
