The CBC in the NYT

Many graceful hat tips to the handful of tipsters who sent word of the huge article about the Columbia Ballet Collaborative in Saturday’s Times. The CBC was formed in 2007 by GSer Victoria North and four friends over a meal at Deluxe (naturally.) And as the article explains at length, the club is designed to provide a outlet for dancers who aren’t in a professional company but still want to perform. 

The piece also includes smaller profiles of North as well as other CBC dancers, plus glimpes into what the Collaborative’s meetings and performances look like. (Oh, and also, there are apparently free professional-level ballet classes open to all on Saturday mornings.)  For further ballet and dance department reading, check out a similar article in the March 2007 issue of the Blue and White by current LA Times reporter Kate Linthicum, BC ’07.
