Perhaps she'll be the next to be replaced, because it's hard to understand how she could have withdrawn from all her Royal Ballet performances until January, and still be able to dance in Milan in two weeks' time. The La Scala Ballet likes to make cast change announcements at the last minute, even when it's plainly obvious for months in advance that an advertised dancer is unable to appear.

He just posted on his Twitter feed: "Act II," with a partial photograph. Has anybody seen any announcements of what he's doing next?

It would seem he is in Australia, based on a post last month by Yuriko Kajiya.

And the photographer credited in Hallberg's most recent Instagram post has taken several pictures of the Australian Ballet, including a shot of their full-length "Nijinsky" ballet that is stylistically very similar to the b&w shot of Hallberg.

So my bet is on him guesting with the Australian Ballet. It would seem a good way to ease back into ballet world, away from European and American critics.

Can someone explain to me what this seeming trend in nebulous Instagram posts is all about? I've seen similar posts from younger (non-famous) folks as well and frankly, I find it somewhat annoying.

I get he's trying to create a buzz, but...."coming out of the shadows," ... "Act II"

Apologies, but I prefer the straight on approach.

Regardless of what it is, just post 'it.' His many fans have missed his presence and would love to know his next steps.
