Who Are the Winter Season Apprentices?

9 posts in this topic

Does anyone out there know who the apprentices are at this point? And who has gotten contracts during and after Nutcrackers season. The youngest dancers are a strong group and a couple of them were down front in Piano Concerto last night, dancing up a storm and getting their first dose of the big room spotlight but alas who are they?

Some sister, mother, classmate or friend must be able to provide some guidance?

Michael, I just received the SAB newsletter today, and it lists the apprentices taken in at workshop In June as: Ashley Hod, Harrison Coll, Indiana Woodword, Sebastian Villarini-Velez, Olivia Boisson, Silas Farley, Austin Bachman, Claire Von Enck, Ghaleb Kayali and Olivia MacKinnon. It also notes that as of printing of this newsletter, Olivia Boisson and Indiana Woodward have signed their Corps Contracts and Unity Phelan and Alexa Maxwell have been taken on as new apprentices.

Hope that helps!

Silas Farley was singled out by Martins in last year's "Sunday at the Ballet with George," in the SAB onstage class.

So is Claire von Enck the petite blond woman who's been down front in every Balanchine ballet this week? Great facility, sense of rhythm, beautiful feet, instantly recognizable?

Traditionally NYCB's women' corps is classed as tall, middle and small women. They restocked tall a couple years back, this year they've aded a couple of striking small.

Whoever she is, that tiny blonde (she's a good inch or two shorter than Lauren Lovett) certainly caught my eye!

If the SAB newsletter is correct, that indeed in Claire Von Enck.

She was featured at the Workshop last spring and an earlier NYCB demo/lecture. Then, she was front and center in PC2 at the finale of the GB celebration day.

And she was in Scherzo a la Russe in September.
