I think company class starts at 11:00; the OBT web site may have more details.
Edited on 8/29 to correct the start time. Yes, I found out the hard way.

Here are the bios of the new dancers:

Yep, I just saw that, too, but you beat me to the forum. Thanks for posting this, Helene!
I just received a copy of the most recent press release from OBT
I was wrong about the time. They're starting barre at 11:00 each day this week.
