I was shocked to find via Facebook that Romel Frometa, ex Primer Bailarin of Ballet Nacional de Cuba and Viengsay Valdes' most frequent partner, is no longer listed in the Company roster. A little search on his name took me to the MADRID JUNIOR CHAMBER BALLET COMPANY-(Spain)- website.
Looks like CNB is getting wounded all over again...
Good luck Romel!

This is a shock, cubanmiamiboy. Perhaps this might just be one of the overseas sabbaticals that is arranged and 'blessed' by Alicia Alonso? He was set to lead the male stars at the upcoming Havana Ballet Festival and the big USA tour next summer.

Maybe you're right, Natasha. I noticed that Frometa's name is still listed in the CNB roster, and a little digging into the Spanish Company shows that this troupe/school was founded by Alonso and many of its professors are Cubans. I really hope this is the case, as it is quite hard to find fast, capable substitutions to go in line with the fast pace to which the male stampede is happening lately...
How ironic...Miami and Havana are being wounded in the same spot at the same time...

Here're a couple of clips of Frometa-(pre-CNB departure)- and Valdes in a TPDD rehearsal. Enjoy them while there're still up...! :flowers:

Romel Frometa is now a Soloist at Cincinnati Ballet.  I wonder when will he become Principal...

Oh, Cubanmiamiboy, now Cincinnati Ballet is added to my ever-growing list of places to visit. Mainly because he is a really nice person, not just a wonderful dancer and noble partner. My 'hero' of Varna 2000; little did we know what a trajectory his dancing life would take.
