I did a double take when I saw the name Elizabeth Powell - she's my favorite of the young corps dancers at SF Ballet. She was selected by Wayne McGregor to be in the first cast of his new ballet, Borderlands, this past season*. She also appears on DVD as Clara in SFB's Nutcracker production (in her younger days).
*As was Lonnie Weeks
