Back in the early 70s, the then editor of CUE told me Mr. Jerry fucked friend and then post-coital, friend made mistake of wanting to discuss "Billion Dollar Baby". I've heard from various people that Jacques D'Amboise was very homophobic (even with respect to Robbins) and Le Clercq in an interview stated that "at least, Jacques liked girls". We agree though that his partnering of Farrell was good enough to make one of the greatest dancers ever known shine at her best. I didn't dance in NYC, but I was a ballet dancer from 6-25, pro from 16-25 and you are correct, R29 and R30.
Check out a 2013 youtube on "relationships" at City Ballet. Tyler Peck and Sarah Mearns are interviewed in a video about "Sleeping Beauty" now playing at the State Theater and both women are so annoyingly millennial-voiced. American ballet dancers have just one extraordinary talent: dancing ballet. I didn't really become a person until I went to college, a freshman at 26!
He lived with Isabella Boylston of ABT (she was a corps and soloist dancer during their relationship, now she is a principal).
He took up with "Black Swan" star Natalie Portman during the filming while Boylston was still living in their apartment.
I am a huge fan of the New York City Ballet and this couple Megan Fairchild (sister of dancer Robert Fairchild) and Andrew Veyette, were a golden pair - their 2011 wedding got a big writeup in the NY Times. Does anyone have any other gossip at all about the company and any of their dancers?
Bravo and Arts & Entertainment aren't even options anymore.Angel and Carmen stayed at ABT but Joaquin and Carmen divorced. We could talk about the marriage of Peter Martins and Darci Kistler - I have heard rumors that they do not live together and the marriage is open.There was a domestic violence incident over 17 years ago between the two that made the papers.Otherwise, they are just ordinary kids with a very limited education and world view. Wouldn't you say that not only of Americans but anyone who from a very young age has to live a practically monastic existence in order to develop a single incredibly difficult discipline? The women are far, far more sheltered than the men, but I had no time to do anything but dance. Up and not so coming (he has had major injuries) principal Chase Finlay has been dating up and coming principal Lauren Lovette (they are the golden young couple at NYCB now).
Not much intelligence or wit or personality off the stage. At least most of the guys are gay with great bodies; I was proudly out at 15. Justin Peck supposedly was dating Teresa Reichlen but it ended... Agree that Peck comes off sexless - not really gay but gayish. Maria Kowroski is married to former Royal Ballet dancer Martin Harvey since 2011 and they have one child now.
George Balanchine's first wife Tamara Geva (whom he had an open marriage with, as he also did with his other 3 wives) had flings with Tallulah Bankhead.
