Koubi, who’s in his early 40s, began taking dance classes in his hometown of Cannes at age 15. He performed and choreographed for a number of companies and started his own group in 2000. At the same time, he studied to become a doctor of pharmacology to please his parents. He graduated in 2002, “but the appeal of dance has been too strong for me to resist,” he says. “My parents wanted me to have a good diploma.
In the show, a subject seeing her for the first time is stunned that she's not a midget. How short was she? Just five-foot, maybe even 4-foot-11. There were lots of rumors because she hadn't been in public and it was before photography. People thought she had been kept out of sight because there was something wrong with her. How did she manage to become a successful monarch? It wasn't easy for her. She made some serious missteps at the beginning of her reign.
Editor's note: The Dallas arts scene is changing. To mark the new year, our writers describe the most exciting developments in their fields of expertise and predict what might happen next. What's going on: Until 2011, the Dallas dance scene was good but predictable: Texas Ballet Theater and Dallas Black Dance Theatre had been doing consistently accomplished work for decades, and a few smaller, long-running groups were putting on some interesting concerts.

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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
