-- Suzanne Limbrunner: former MCB dancer who moved to France, dancing in Bordeaux; she and returning Principal Yann Trividic were married in Miami Beach last February
-- Adriana Piercy, School of American Ballet. She danced in SAB's performance of Fanfare this season. MCB is performing that work on Program I.
-- Emily Bromberg, Ballet San Jose
-- Renan Cerdeiro, promoted from apprentice; was performing soloists roles by the end of last season. Much deserved. Expect more from this young man.
No thumbnails on the website yet, but here is a shot of Limbrunner's and Trividic's wedding.
Meanwhile, "So You Think You Can Dance" continues its cherry-picking from among MCB dancers. The latest: Daniel Baker, seen here in a May 2010 audition.

One must also notice the female roster loses:
Ms. Seay's presence will be much missed on the stage. Her artistry was at a superior level in comparison to the other principal women. With the lose of Noelle, D'Addario and Andrea Spirodanokis it will be interesting to see which dancers Mr. Villella casts in the tall leggy roles for all the Balanchine Ballets. All three of the women are a lot taller than a majority of the female dancers in the company and were always casted in the "tall" roles like Choleric in 4t's and the soloist woman in Rubies.

Keller and Gibson are lovely dancers. From a rep standpoint, however, Noelle and d'Addario will especially missed -- not only for the tall girl roles, but for their individuality, personality, and stage appeal. Both have done a good amount of solo work. I would hate having to expose the company to the scrutiny of national tv in Western Symphony, for instance, without these excellent dancers somewhere on stage to add pizzazz.
Thanks, som2003. And WELCOME to Ballet Talk.

The absence of the divine Seay will always be felt, sadly. I'm very sorry to see that the extremely interesting, vivacious Noelle is gone. I saw d'Addario's debut in the second ballerina role of Barocco and was very taken with her; as Bart says, national TV without all these excellent and experienced company members?!?
