Following the high profile NYCB claims against Peter Martins, this is another instance where alleged inappropriate conduct has caused the dismissal/resignation of an artistic director of a major ballet company (Kenneth Greve). As of today.

Not again! I hope this mess is turned into a positive catalyst.

It's about time that dancers find their voices and stand up for the respect that they deserve. This was a long time coming.

It took courage for these dancers to speak out and after they were ignored, it took even more courage for them to persist. I hope their efforts cause a genuine and sustained change in this company and that other company directors and Board of Directors will take heed.  Here's a link to the Helsingin Sanomat (major Finnish newspaper)

Thanks for the link, swanchat. Very sad that this is still going on in this day and age.
