Ballet Negotiations Continue…

Last month we covered the strike at the Washington Ballet and the ensuing closure of the company. Looks like things are getting worse: The Ballet has rejected an offer for mediation from the President of the Kennnedy Center. Of course, it probably doesn’t help that the dancers still view their own strike as a lockout. That said, it doesn’t seem to help that the management of the Ballet is unwilling to guarantee a certain number of dancing positions. Kaiser used to be the Executive Director of the American Ballet Theater, which gives him some serious insight into the artists’ community, as well as the management’s views. Here’s hoping they’re able to come to an agreement.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
