With her sparkling footwork, musicality and lustrous phrasing, Ms. Fairchild, 33, who makes her Odette-Odile debut on Sept. 26, is used to commanding the stage in effortless displays of virtuosity, especially in ballets by the company’s founding choreographer, George Balanchine, like “Donizetti Variations,” “Rubies” and “Tchaikovsky Pas de Deux.”But her roles in full-length ballets have veered more toward “Sleeping Beauty” and “Coppélia” — parts, traditionally, for smaller dancers.
When you are devoted to a marginalized art form like dance, you tend to look for it in everything as a way of justifying its importance to the world. I like to imagine that the Knicks are really just dancers and that the fall dance season actually begins at Arthur Ashe Stadium. But paramount these days is the sport in which the players wear tights and take their grace to the most important stage of all: the end zone, where touchdown dances have taken on a life of their own.
#SpeakingindanceThe Center of Their Own WorldFor “Festival of Dreams” the Congolese choreographer Faustin Linyekula worked with dancers from It’s Showtime NYC for two weeks.#SpeakingInDance is a weekly visual exploration of dance on Instagram.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
