The high turnover, as found in many companies at this time, still dismays me.

I always hate to see ANYBODY leave a company, and I wish everyone well.
Dufaur was the Open Barre performance I attended last weekend, but did not dance. I like him, and he's grown a lot. I will miss him especially. He's an excellent photographer, by the way.
Zherlin Ndudi has hardly had any stage time since he arrived ... what? two years ago? ... so there is no suprise there.
Wong and Baker are no-brainers. The challenge will be to find more for them to do -- Wong especially. Both were dancing their hearts out last weekend in Quickstep, and Baker especially was in a wonderful groove.

Sad to see Spiridonakos out. I loved this tall dancer.

He also mentions that he'd like the chance to dance the Hoofer in Slaughter on 10th Avenue. (He took tap even before he started ballet.) I'd like to see him given the chance to stretch himself into all kinds of new kinds of roles this season.. Is size an issue in the Hoofer? I can remember only Arthur Mitchell and Damian Woetzel. Both seemed reasonable tall in relation to their Strip Tease Girls. The best pairing for Wong so far seems to be Jeanette Delgado, but I don't see her as the Strip Tease Girl.
(He's looking forward to "Who Cares?".)
Last time I saw Slaughter at MCB it was Jeremy Cox and the leggy Andrea Spiridonakis.
