  35. Rogue Ballerina is the rosin that keeps me from slipping off into ignorance. Chicago is the ideal city to experience the full spectrum of the current dance scene, and RB clearly knows not just technique, but also who’s who and what’s what in her city, and how to get to the story without getting bogged down in the drama and politics of any one company. Love your writing RB and that your eyes don’t miss a thing! Reading you is like a warm hug that reminds me whether we’re performing these days or not, all of us who trained so hard will always be Dancers, so when our discerning eyes maybe see a new piece or a re-mounting of an old favourite differently, we at least speak the same language.

    God bless ya RB for keeping me in the Loop even when I’m not!
