I frequently travel back and forth between New York, Boston and Philadelphia to see the companies perform. Is there any word of any new dancers for this season?

Watch this space. Once PaB issues its official announcement, Dale will post it.

And welcome to BalletTalk, AbtFan07. :smilie_mondieu:

Here's news of a dancer leaving, from the Hubbard Street Dance Company release:

Newly arrived to the main company is dancer Philip Colucci (29, Malaga, New Jersey), who received a Princess Grace Award in 1998 and earned a B.F.A. from The Juilliard School in 1999. Prior to joining HSDC he was a soloist with the Pennsylvania Ballet, performing featured roles in works by George Balanchine, Kevin O’Day, Paul Taylor and Trey McIntyre, among others.

That's bad news for PA Ballet. I thought Philip Colucci was one, if not the, best dancers for the company in the past two seasons.

I second that, Dale. Ouch. They didn't want to lose him.
