A lot of ballet students were in the audience, too.
Michaela told me she is at JKO School of ABT but also with the studio company. She looked fabulous. Her parents were also in the audience and took a bow.
Joan Sebastian is with the Royal Ballet School and flew in from England. He is very sweet and modest, and has a real presence. His roommate from Queens also showed up; he still lives in Queens.
The director added an update at the end of the movie, indicating that two months after the competition, Rebecca was asked to join a company on the west coast. I don't remember which one, off hand.
I had seen Aran on Guggenheim's Works and Process about the YAGP and his progress in one year, since the filming of the movie, has been amazing. Aran, Miko, and Rebecca did not show up in NY.

Kargman told us in the Q&A that Houseknecht had danced for a year and was asked to return, but decided to go to college again. Kargman said she wanted a dancer who had a "regular" upbringing, living at home, going to public school, doing other teenage activities as well as ballet, and Houseknecht fit the bill.
