Without asking "Who's better?", can experienced viewers from The City state particular features of individual dancers that we should look for?

It depends on your strategy: if you go to the opening gala-format program, you'll see everyone. If you attend the mixed bill on Saturday night, July 29, you'll see Yuri Possokhov's last performance with the Company. If you're planning to see Sylvia, that's a tougher one: when it first premiered, I saw Megan Low, who retired in the role this past spring, and Elizabeth Miner. Miner was fabulous, but the reviews from this year indicate that this year's performances weren't to the same standard. I didn't see Tan or Zahorian, both of whom are cast for NYC. If I had to choose one Sylvia, it would be Friday, July 28, because I loved Guennadi Nedviguine's sweet, sweet Aminta, and Maffre will appear in the short, but potent, role of Diana.

Among the women, I'd say Tina LeBlanc, Lorena Feijoo, and Muriel Maffre are the three Principal women not to miss. They are very different dancers, but each as authoritative as the other.
I had no idea that's where Tina LeBlanc ended up. I used to love her with the Joffrey back in the early 90s when I was at the school and got to see them all the time. I'll make sure I see her. Thanks so much!
