How to understand Ballet Talk terminology

Recommended Posts

Is there a ballet talk dictionary or a topic which explains some of the abbreviations used on this site such as DD,RDA, etc?

Yes, there is! Just scroll down the pinned topics on this forum and you will see Important Acronyms. I think most of them are there, not sure about RDA....that is Regional Dance America, which is the National organization consisting of the regional organizations like SERBA (Southeast Regional Ballet Association), NERBA (Northeast), etc. :)

That's okay, Twinkle Mom! Appreciate your posting the link, as I am on a browser that won't do that. :(

I would just add that on that list, the National Ballet of Canada is listed as NBC. I've more commonly seen it here as NBOC. Perhaps that has changed in the almost ten intervening years since that list was originally posted?

 

Also, BT4D, while admittedly a bit obvious, isn't on there, either.

That is because I refuse to use numbers for words. :wink: It is BTforD, which is even more obvious!

You might not use that abbreviation, Ms Leigh, but other people do! :cool2:

 

(I usually hate seeing numbers as words, but in this particular instance, it doesn't bother me)
