As of this writing, authorities are treating the attack as a "terrorist incident."

As we reported, at least 19 are dead after an explosion went off at Ariana Grande's concert in Manchester, England.The workshop will also provide an opportunity for the students to showcase their talent to other ballet companies across the country.Gaining a leading part in the workshop is therefore essential.
Actual American Ballet Theater principal Ethan Stiefel plays a thinly disguised version of himself, merely so that he can perform jeté entrelacés with cinematic abandon; and for some reason, figure skating gold medalist Ilia Kulik is there, too, pining after someone named Galina.“[It’s] been hard for me in the last 15 years that my career has not progressed.”But acting was not a profession Pratt spent her childhood dreaming of — a fact that takes a bit of the sting out for the now 41-year-old mother of two.Pratt left school at 16 to pursue modeling in Milan before heading to college in New York, where agents began sending her out for commercials, which quickly led to film and television auditions. ”She scored her first acting role in a 1998 episode of Law & Order and then put college on hold after being cast as Mandella in 10 Things.For those who didn't, she played Julia Stiles’ Shakespeare-obsessed best friend in the 1999 Taming of the Shrew–inspired comedy, then she was Melissa Joan Hart’s scheming frenemy in the 1999 movie that introduced us to Adrian Grenier, and she was also “the best goddamn dancer” in the 2000 ballet drama.Although none of those films were massive commercial successes — 10 Things made million while Drive Me Crazy and Center Stage both topped out around million — many children of the ’90s connected deeply to at least one of them.The film is a cabinet of Y2K curiosities, and though it doesn’t aim higher than its station (this was the golden age of teen movies for the kids who grew up to be millennials, after all), it’s suffused with a certain kind of integrity of vision.(It has a pedigree, too: The film is edited by Tariq Anwar and cast by Daniel Swee, who both would go on to work on Oscar-winning features.) The film is careful to balance the realism of struggling to make it as a dancer with the beauty and grace of dance itself; there are no dream sequences, no slow-motion, and very little non-diegetic music, because these dancers are in the business of creating a fantasy, not living in one already.Wearing her blonde tresses down in a loose wave, the 26-year-old's ample chest was impossible to miss in her polka dot two-piece.Jennifer gave fans a glimpse of her cleavage thanks to the cut-out detailing on her monochrome crop top, which clung to her slim waist.Star student Maureen (Susan May Pratt), a closet bulimic who seems poised for success, discovers that life is passing her by when she meets a pre-med student (Eion Bailey) who shows her the merits of a life without ballet, to the dismay of her controlling stage mother (Debra Monk), herself a failed ballet dancer and current ABC employee.Sweet Jody Sawyer (Amanda Schull), despite underdeveloped turn out, body type issues, and bad feet, is determined to dance professionally, but it appears less and less likely as the movie progresses that she will be good enough.
