The Royal Danish Ballet has just announced the names of dancers joining the company for next season.

Nehemiah Kish joins as a Soldanser (Principal) from the National Ballet of Canada (as already announced in the Canadian press)

Joining the corps de ballet are:

J'amie Crandall (Dutch National Ballet)
James Clark (NBoC)
Julien Schittenhelm (Zurich Ballet)
Holly Jean Dorger (ABT)
Bryant Gabriel Steenstra (NBoC)
Aurore Casanova (POB)
Gregory Paul Dean (Scottish Ballet)
Laure Dougy (Royal Swedish Ballet)

Four of the company's aspirants are also taken into the corps de ballet:

Emilie Schack
Amalie Adrian
Hilary Guswiler
Alban Carl Filip Lendorf

That's a lot of new names - some familiar ones have disappeared from the online company listing but I need to check more definitely if these people have actually left the company.

Could you tell us where the announcement was made? I would love to know more but the names don't appear on the RDB english site yet. Thank you.

Millie, right now it seems only to be on the [url="http://"http://www.kglteater.dk/Aktuelt/Nyheder/Nyhedsarkiv/2008/Ny%20solodanser%20ansat.aspx"]News[/url] page of the website, in Danish - but it only lists the names of the new joiners, without any more information except for Kish.


Dancers who are leaving the company are soloists Sebastian Michanek and Izabella Sokolowska (who hasn't been seen for the last couple of seasons) and corps de ballet dancers Mie Fjelstrup and Nadia Dahl. Also, Instructor Christina Olssen is retiring. (And Kenneth and Marie-Pierre Greve have also left, of course.)

Thank you.
I am happy you let us know, as I don't speak Danish and would have missed this. I look forward to reading it in English.

Congratulations to the dancers :blink: , and thanks, Jane, for the info.

There is an error, though, reported to us by someone close to Holly Jean Dorger. Holly joins the company after four years at SAB. She is not an ABT alum. I realize that the misattribution of Ms. Dorger's training pedigree is not Jane's error, but that of :dunno: the RDB, as that is how it appears on the company's website.
