Someone I know sad that because ABT is such a huge company it is easy to be lost and forgotten in the corps...

Radetsky also has a higher profile of a dancer in a similar situation due to his staring role in Center State. That might give his fans an inflated view of where he should be in his ballet career.

Dancers take time to evolve and develop, and must be allowed to do so at their own rates and paces. I've seen dancers who've spent twenty years in the corps and suddenly went into soloist and principal roles, not because it was a sort of "gold watch" longevity award, but because it was time! So while we may root for the Radetskys or the Wileses, or whomever comes our way, it's not always in the dancer's best interests to be forcibly raised to the top. Ethel Barrymore wrote a famous autobiography, called Too Much, Too Soon. That concept serves as a caution, especially in dancers' careers!
