Get the Pointe Archive of Dance.net Ballet Interviews

Reading “Get the Pointe” Interviews are always so inspirational and its fun learning about our fellow DDNers. I thought it would be useful to have a thread archiving ALL the Get the Pointe Ballet Interviews to make it easy for everyone to read/find the past issues.

Compiling this list was a labor of love for me! :D

If anyone can find the missing links for Get the Pointe Interviews #4, #5, #8, and #10, please let me know so they can be added to the original thread list, or post them.

About once every three months MapleWalnut posts on thread on the Ballet General - Pointe board asking for DDNers to "sign up for Get the Pointe." So keep your eyes on this board for her thread.

The last issue of Get the Pointe was December 2007 and she posted a thread on the Ballet - General Board at the end January stating that it would be a few months before she could work on the next issue (i.e. academics come first, right? :D)

Hugs,

Maria

Ho hum.

Yes, school has to come first as it's now time to really focus and choose a major (though I still have no clue!). I'm battling my parents about staying in Science - which I have absolutely no love for - since I want to transfer to Arts and do a major in Family Studies.

I have asked Maria to help me out with the issues, via PM, so I hope that she will accept my plea of help! =P

And I never noticed that I duplicated issue #18, lol. That was when I took over...-.-" Guess I was more out of it than I thought, eh?

The issues are actually supposed to be out once a month, which I tried my best to do but things always started sliding. Hopefully, Maria and I can work something out together.

To be chosen is completely random. I usually put up a post asking for people to sign up to be interviewed or nominate another DDN-er. I count how many entries their are, minus the duplicates, and then use a random number generator to select the interviewee.

You could check the Jazz boards to see if someone has already done that, or do it yourself (and make a thread on the jazz board). :D

I think that "Get the Pointe" one of the best initiative on Dance.net !

It gives me support and courage in my quest to dance ballet with dancers whose are all amazing and have great joy and ambitions.

I hope that you'll continue this beautifull and instructive adventure !

^The sign up is put on the Ballet - General board on the 26th every other month, and then the thread is locked after about 10 days.

The final interview is 'published' on the General - Pointe board about six weeks later.

Remember: the winner is chosen by the random number generator. Interview #30 is underway, and will be posted on the General - pointe board in early February.

The next sign up to be chosen by the random generator, starts on Feb. 26th, for for interview #31.

I was thinking of nominating one of my friends for the next issue. However she doesnt actually do pointe. She does regular ballet though, of course. :P Seeing as how this is called Get the POINTE, is she still illegible?

She doesn't have to be en pointe to be entered into the drawing. She just needs to be a ballet student.
