As of January 15, 2005, the message boards at Ballet Alert! are under new management. I'm no longer administrator of, nor responsible for, the sites, which have been renamed Ballet Talk (a board for talking about watching ballet for those 16 and older) and Ballet Talk For Dancers (a board for dancers, students 13 and older, teachers and others doing dance). The Ballet Alert! site will stay on line as an archive. DanceView and danceviewtimes will continue to be published. I am very glad the message boards will continue, and very grateful to those who have taken the reins.
