Roster Changes

4 posts in this topic

Ballet Austin has finally begun to update the company roster on the website. Inga Loujerenko is gone, and Beth Terwilliger has been promoted from Ballet Austin II. They've hired a new male dancer, Orlando Canova, but so far there is no information on him. I'm not sure who he's replacing.

If it's the same person I'm thinking of, then Orlando Canova is formerly of Joffrey Ballet.

Yes, Orlando is formerly of the Joffrey Ballet of Chicago.

He's not necessarily replacing anyone, unless you consider him a replacement for a male dancer who left a little ways into the 04/05 season. Ballet Austin functioned with 19 dancers last season: 9 men and 10 women.

Inga Loujerenko retired at the end of last season performing a stunning Odette/Odile, her presence is certainly missed.

Sadly, Ballet Austin's website has been PAINFULLY slow in updating it's roster of dancers.

Better the company should lag on its website than its artistic matters, but the internet provides an asset which is more valuable to the (read: any) company and its followers when info accessed through it is kept up to date.

Thanks for the clarification and updates on personnel changes, Pointe1432, and welcome to BalletTalk! :yahoo: I hope you'll stop by our Welcome Page and introduce yourself.
