    You are the best, Teri! Thank you for your wonderful, insightful, timely insights. I don’t know what I would do without you! The San Francisco Ballet fans are truly fortunate to have you. Thank you for all you are doing! Love, Netta

  4. Robert Nelson says:

    Thank you so much for all of the wonderful insight you have shared with me over the past year. I have come to know the dancers of SF Ballet much better. And you have helped us know the schedules for the dancers. And shared some of their bios with us. Thank you so much.

  5. Both as a journalist and balletomane, I am deeply impressed by the depth, variety, and obvious oceans of elbow grease exhibited on this blog.

    If I didn’t know that the blog owner is a person, I would surely guess that this is an output of a large editorial organization. Kudos and best wishes for the new year!
