I had the same question when I saw the list -- and when I thought of all those French dancers, those who are not from the POB school, who auditioned recently. What options are there for these beautifully-trained dancers who, for one reason or other, do not find a place at the top of the pyramid?
do you know what will happen to the others now? I always wonder where the one who don't get contracts with POB go as I've looked at quite a few of the major dance companies and don't see any french dancers listed.

They are some POB-trained dancers in German companies, and also at other French companies like the Opéra de Bordeaux. I am surprised they're aren't more at American companies though.
Such a pity they're so few places this year.

From the article on Maraval:
"I went to an audition in New York, and Francia (Russell, longtime co-artistic director, along with her husband Kent Stowell) told me I needed to work on my musicality. She said the French are not musical. Then I took a class with Anne Derieux (another French dancer) so Kent could see me dance."
I think Ms. Verdy would beg to differ.
On San Francisco Ballet's current roster are Pascal Molat and Pierre-François Vilanoba (also Lille Conservatory). French-born Sofiane Sylve studied at Académie de Dance in Nice.
