Keenan is among the corps ladies in the current US tour of Costa Mesa, CA, Berkeley, CA, and Washington, DC.
(Yes, it took to MT website a few months to update their roster with all of the corps additions + promos.)

While searching the current Mariinsky roster for Stepanova (who is gone), I noticed that Keenan Kampa is no longer with the troupe. If memory serves, she was inactive for most of the last Mariinsky season, 2013/14, due to injury but I was hoping to be seeing her back on the boards this year. Hopefully she is with another troupe in the US or Europe.

I saw that she taught at Grand Rapids Ballet 2014 Summer program. Perhaps she is taking this year to audition and will sign for the following season with a new company.

I was very much looking forward to her return to the Mariinsky.
I hope that I'm allowed to say here that I met her once at a Mariinsky reception and found her to be one of the loveliest individuals that I've ever spoken to.
I wish her much success and happiness wherever she goes.

It had a limited run in the DC area (in the Virginia 'burbs) but I caught it. Heavy emphasis on hip hop, so it wasn't my cup of tea, but it's always nice to see some ballet (any ballet) on film.

Finished watching her on Amazon movie rental about a half hour ago. I thought that she did just fine and wish her much success and happiness. Maybe she'll keep up the ballet too. She was a Mariinsky dancer -- not to be sneezed at.
