n.— «“I only have one “bunhead’ in the company,” Johnson said. “The rest are moderns. These girls are so great. They’ll try anything. They’re willing to talk, willing to sing, willing to be fools. They not only had to learn the ‘Sugar Plum,’ they had to make versions of their own.” “Bunhead” is modern-dance pejorative for “ballet dancer.”» —“Johnson, her company will be dancing ‘In From the Chill’” by Tom Strini Journal Sentinel (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) Nov. 15, 2006.
