Results of Round One Seniors now up on the competition's website:
Congrats to Brooklyn Mack of The Washington Ballet - the only North American senior to have made it on to Round Two! (Results among juniors, which may include more N.Ams, not yet published.)
I see that several current or past Mariinsky dancers have made it to Rnd 2, including Skorik, Askerov, Cheprasova, A. Popov, and the wonderful recent-Vaganova-graduate Ernest Latipov. Anastasia Limenko is a very beautiful recent-graduate of the Bolshoi's affiliated academy, who has made it on to the next round...as is Alexander Omelchenko, the lad who won the recent 'Russian Ballet Competition' held at the Bolshoi in March 2013, chaired by Grigorovich. The Bolshoi's up-and-coming choryphee Olga Marchenkova is another fave iafter Rnd One. Oksana Bondareva, a star of the Mikhailovsky, is also there (NOTE: Some Russian web sites now reporting that she has dropped out. Hope she's OK.) Watch out for all of these.
Edited to add note about Bondareva's possible/reported withdrawal.
