Thanks for Twyla tip. Will watch it this evening.
I wish someone would get her 2012 ballet for kids,The Princess and The Goblin, on film and online at PBS.
Kids and parents really need an infusion of hope, victory & beauty these days. Nothing like a good fairy tale to get the job done.

From Winnipeg's trailer
"Tharp's defining new ballet, adapted from a fairy tale by Victorian fantasy novelist George MacDonald, follows young Princess Irene on a courageous quest as she discovers the town's children being kidnapped by the Goblin. Guided by her Great-Great-Grandmother, the heroine succeeds in rescuing the children against the odds in a transformative and inspiring story of humility and forgiveness."

Co-produced by: Canada's Royal Winnipeg Ballet & Atlanta Ballet

The PBS documentary was outstanding - informative and entertaining.

Twyla has always been in the forefront when it comes to using technology. She may have inherited that from working with Robert Joffrey who also saw a benefit to using technology in some of his works like Astarte.

She's had quite a life, and I'm glad to see that she is still going strong -- and that this documentary has come along.
