Antonia Franceschi[edit]

  • ... that Antonia Franceschi starred in the movie Fame, which is set at the same High School of Performing Arts that she attended in real life?
    • ALT1: ... that Antonia Franceschi's ballet Shift, Trip, Catch was noted by reviewers for "[flexing] its emotional muscle, with a crackle of combative dance" and its "bold all-American punch"?
    • Reviewed: exempt; only one prior DYK nomination

  • New enough. Long enough. Seems to be mostly within policy (no copyvios per earwig, mostly cited, seems OK POV-wise, I would suggest cutting down on the direct quotes - but they're OK). I think the first hook on Fame is hookier (and better). There is, however, one issue that needs to be addressed (for DYK and BLP) - "Franceschi became the director of a small dance company, Just Dance, and directed its premiere performance in July 2015." is lacking a citation. I tagged this with a citation needed tag - once this is resolved it seems good to go. Icewhiz (talk) 07:49, 3 April 2019 (UTC)
    • Thanks -- I added the missing citation. I like direct quotes for reviews because they all sound pretty bland when paraphrased. Do you have ideas about cutting down on the quotes without losing the sense of the critical reception? I'd be glad for improvements. Thanks! Kenirwin/(talk) 13:24, 3 April 2019 (UTC)
      • Symbol confirmed.svg. Good to go after citation added. Afraid that while I'm good at giving advice, I too throw lots of direct quotes at articles - so we're in the same boat here. Icewhiz (talk) 14:13, 3 April 2019 (UTC)
