The first sentence of her bio should read, "Born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Nicole Ciapponi trained [with/at] Goh Ballet..." But I'm not sure if contacting the webmaster would change anything.

It's funny, but I was so hoping she would turn up (others have after not being listed in the initial update) that I've been checking regularly in hopes she would be there.

I'm a great admirer of her potential; if she gets the nurturing that Tomasson does so well, she could be special. She's already had some solo roles (Spinner, I think in Coppelia, Red Sox Girl in the Balanchine La Sylphide look alike - forgotten the name). Technically, she's up to anything, especially glorious batterie, but she still seems a little shy of imposing herself on a role. I saw Red Sox Girl twice: Ciapponi and Dores Andre. When Ciapponi left the stage, I wanted to see the dancer again; when Andre left the stage, I wanted to see the character again.

Excellent news. Thanks for letting us know.

It's interesting that in last year's booklets, she was listed as joining the corps de ballet in 2010.  Now her bio says she joined in 2013.

Wasn't she a trainee first? Maybe that was the source of the mixup?

She's been in the corps since 2010. I think this was just an editing error.

Meet SF Ballet’s Newest Principal Dancer: Mathilde Froustey

(from the SFB Blog)

http://www.sfballetb...hilde-froustey/

 

I'm impressed that she's already done volunteer work at Glide Memorial Church (very famous in the Bay Area).

Courtney's LinkedIn profile states "Classical and Contemporary Performing Artist and Instructor" in/near Charlotte, NC.

 

I've confirmed that Courtney Elizabeth is teaching at the Piedmont School of Music and Dance in North Carolina, and is now calling herself Courtney Elizabeth Stewart, so I think we can guess that she's gotten married since leaving SFB. Congratulations to Courtney!

Mrs. Stewart has been married to Mr. Matt Stewart (former SFB member as well) for some time.

It looks like the soloist Dmitry Zagrebin never made it over from Russia. Can anyone confirm what he is doing at present?

 

His Facebook page mentions, "Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Musical Theatre".

It appears he returned to the Stanislavsky Theater with a promotion. He is scheduled to dance the part of Bratfisch in MacMillan's Mayerling on November 8 and 9, having recently danced the Bronze Idol in the company's new La Bayadère on October 18, 19 and 21.
