First Position LII: "The Top Ten": "The following dance events, seen here and out of town in 2005, were the dances that again explained why I have chosen the right profession," Allan Ulrich, Dec 19, 2005

First Position LI:: "This (and Mostly) That": "[Ballet Russes] is a vivid history of the institution that shaped so much of our thinking about dance in the 20th century," Allan Ulrich, Nov 3, 2005

First Position L: "Heritage Today, Gone Tomorrow": "...called into question here is an entire generation of American ballets, an important part of what I would dare to call our American heritage. The question of heritage has been engaging scholars, dancers and ballet companies of late; and it�s truly about time to take another look at this repertoire," Allan Ulrich, Oct 3, 2005
