Hi everyone!

So ABT just announced that James Whiteside, a former principal from the Boston Ballet, has joined as a Soloist. I've never seen him dance, but hopefully will get to see him at the City Center season in Oct.

What do others think of the current Soloists at ABT? Why do you think the elegant Stella Abrera has never been promoted to Principal?
There are a few corps members that I think should be promoted already - Shevchenko, Tamm, Teuscher, Gorak. They're overflowing with talent and potential.

Hi ABT fan, welcome to Ballet Talk!

There was actually quite a long thread recently about the male principal issue at ABT - I will see if I can link you to it.

Actually if you scroll down a bit when you're on the ABT page here you'll find threads on both male and female principals. That's probably easier for you than me giving a link.

Thanks mom2! I'm new here, but just found the ABT page where that topic has been discussed. Looking forwarding to joining it!
