Any thoughts? Comments?
As for me, it was wonderful last season to see the growth, especially in stagecraft, of Delgado and Bramaz. Delgado's range, both emotionally and as a dancer, has increased in an impressive way, and Bramaz is becoming a confident partner as well as an eye-catching soloist. (incidentally, MCB now has two principals who are sisters: Jeanette and Patricia).
I was also happy to see Garcia-Rodriguez return to the company last season, after a year or two dancing with Gamonet, and to watch the way he commanded the stage in the new Tharp piece. He's a principal, definitely , especially in big dramatic pieces.

I've seen Michael's dancing since his days at SAB as well. We're friends, so I'm biased, but I think he has beautiful line.

I've only been following MCB for 7 seasons, but my impression is that the company has been more likely to promote female dancers upward from the corps than young male dancers.
Of the eight current female principals, only Catoya and Wu arrived as principals. Alberson, Carranza, and Seay were corps members at MCB. Kronenberg and the two Delgados (Patricia and Jeanette) were Apprentices.
Of the five current male principals, Cox arrived as a coryphee and Penteado as a member of the corps. But Guerra, Rolando Sarabia, and Garcia Rodriguez were hired at higher levels.
