  1. I LOVE RB!! The blog is timely, constructive, and features dancers, companies, students, choreographers from a variety of genres and levels. And let’s face it, Rogue Ballerina is an awesome title!!!

  2. RB is great! Well written and informative. What a great representation of Chicago’s dance scene! I always look forward to what’s next !!

  3. R.B. has my vote! It keeps me up-to-date on the Chicago dance scene. I love how inclusive it is of all that is happening with the various companies, large and small, and also the various genres. As a dancer, the descriptive and constructive reviews enable me to picture the dancers and experience their performances from afar. This site is top notch!

  4. Rogue Ballerina is the best blog on dance that I’ve read. It’s insightful, doesn’t talk down to you and gives me information that I can’t find anywhere else. Great site!!!

  5. RB is a must in order to keep in tune with the Chicago dance scene! She obviously has a background in dance and is a talented writer.

  6. I love RB because it gives me the inside scoop as to what’s going on in the dance circuit in Chicago and it gives wonderful perspective of the performances after the fact. I value the bloggers opinion and critique because I know she has spent her life dancing and appreciate her giving back to the community in this way.

  7. Rogue Ballerina is the rosin that keeps me from slipping off into ignorance. Chicago is the ideal city to experience the full spectrum of the current dance scene, and RB clearly knows not just technique, but also who’s who and what’s what in her city, and how to get to the story without getting bogged down in the drama and politics of any one company. Love your writing RB and that your eyes don’t miss a thing! Reading you is like a warm hug that reminds me whether we’re performing these days or not, all of us who trained so hard will always be Dancers, so when our discerning eyes maybe see a new piece or a re-mounting of an old favourite differently, we at least speak the same language.

    God bless ya RB for keeping me in the Loop even when I’m not!

  8. RB is such an amazing blog because it gives a voice to all dance companies – big and small. It is well-rounded in terms of the various types of dance featured that it just feels like THE site to visit when looking for relevant dance in Chicago. Definitely one of the Top Dance Blogs in my eyes!

  9. RB raises the ballet bar for any type of dance in Chicago. Great source for the vast offerings in our amazingly talented city. Plus, a great source for the dance audience to keep up on the campy, couture, classic and crisp companies offering beauty, strength, innovation and heart in their productions. I tip my tutu to you, RB!

  10. LOVE Rogue Ballerina. Editor/Blogger Vicki always keeps me in the loop on the latest in the Chicago dance scene. I wonder if she’ll go see Black Swan with me? ; )

  11. RB rocks my socks! Vicki is a beautifully talented writer who knows her stuff. RB is a must-read for the in-crowd and ‘dance world curious’ *ahem* like myself :D
