Two names stick out for me -- Frances Katzen, who was a soloist for Suzanne Farrell Ballet, and Zoe Zien, who I think was at SAB from the time she was little: I remember her name from The Nutcracker programs. She has a sister, whose name is Hayley, IIRC, but I don't remember which sister danced "Little Red Riding Hood" in Martins' production of The Sleeping Beauty, or if they shared the role.

Same here Helene. I liked Katzen with the Farrell group and I must have seen Zoe Zien a bench of times in things like Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty and Scenes de Ballet. I also remember Cox from SAB doing the male lead in Who Cares?

Zoe Zien is the daughter of former NYCB soloist Susan Pilarre. I remember both she and her sister looked very much like their mother when they danced Little Red Riding Hood in Beauty.

I believe Zoe apprenticed at MCB last year, too.

Wow, I had no idea. I really liked Pilarre as a dancer.
