  1. Comparing the roster in tonight's program to one from June 12, it appears that four of the five apprentices got corps contracts since the 12th. Congrats to Carlos Gonzalez, Annabel Katsnelson, Xuekan Lu, and Gabrielle Perkins. Kiely Groenewegen is still listed as an apprentice.
  2. In her review of the workshop gala performance, Marina Harss names the new apprentices: "After the show, eight new apprentices were named: Gabriella Domini, Nieve Corrigan, Mary Thomas MacKinnon, India Bradley, Andres Zuniga, Gilbert Bolden, Darius Black and Roman Mejia. Congratulations to all." http://dancetabs.com/2017/06/school-of-american-ballet-workshop-performance-new-york/
  3. Here's an update on his comeback: http://www.smh.com.au/entertainment/dance/david-hallberg-coppelia-comeback-after-agonising-layoff-20161207-gt63ot.html?mc_cid=73f7555480&mc_eid=78e9fc27f6
  4. @cobweb - what is Society NYCB? Is that the old 4th Ring Society?
  5. New York Times article about Maria Kowroski's return to dancing: http://nyti.ms/27IkIar
  6. Tuesday night he replaced Gonzalo Garcia in Hallelujah Junction and then danced the Allegro (first) movement of Western Symphony. Bravo, Taylor!
  7. The andante (second) movement of Shostakovich's Piano Concerto No. 2 always makes me a bit weepy but tonight, watching Sara Mearns and Tyler Angle dance Ratmansky's choreography to it for Concerto DSCH, was a two hankie performance. Sara looked as though she could float away on some of those lifts. Thank heavens there was one more movement after the andante to regain my composure before the lights came up.
  8. Allen Peiffer is listed as a guest artist? And he is no longer on the roster on City Ballet's web site? Did he retire from the company?
  9. Just tweeted by NYCBallet: SPAC season dedicated to Albert Evans. https://twitter.com/nycballet/status/618572630203977730
  10. The New York Times just posted an obituary. It's just horribly sad.
  11. I thought the same thing reading Instagram posts by Wendy Whelan, Maria Kowroski, Joaquin de Luz, and Sara Mearns. Very, very sad news.
  12. This is fantastic to hear!
  13. Congratulations Preston Chamblee! He's a strong dancer with great stage presence.
  14. Is that Stephen Hannah holding Megan Fairchild's right hand as she does that walk on the hands of the other dancers?
