I saw they have 4 new members from the school joining the corps as apprentices: Catherine Hurlin, Pasha Knopp, Alexandra Pullen, and Hanna Marshall. I wish ABT had graduation performances like the Bolshoi, Mariinsky, and POB do. Maybe when they get more money they will.

They sort of have annual JKO graduation performance at end of July at the Sinatra School auditorium in Long Island City.

James Whiteside's Twitter account says to watch for an "exciting" announcement from ABT later this week. Promotion, perhaps? By the way, whatever you may think of him as a danseur, his JbDUBS videos are very funny. And the boy can move!

For the James Whiteside supporters (including me), the Sunday NY Times had an article on people in the NY dance scene to watch, including James Whiteside.  Macauley writes, "It’s hard to imagine that he won’t be promoted to a principal here soon."

I moved the James Whiteside discussion to a new thread.

Eun Young Ahn is no longer on ABT's website and dancers Mai Aihara, Sungwoo Han and Jonathan Klein joined the corp this month. Their has been a lot of shake up in the corp this year.

None of their names were on the ABT roster printed in the fall season schedule at the Kokh (late Oct/early Nov) but I now see them as Apprentices on the company web, here:

Julio Brogado-Young has left ABT. He is no longer on the website and his FB notes he left the Company. He'll be missed.

I thought that Marcelo Gomes had hinted at that in his Twitter feed, but I was hoping it wasn't.  Bragado-Young was a great actor; sorry to see him go.  I wonder what he'll be doing now?

What a loss - an excellent character actor and dancer. I'll miss him as Bottom and so many other things. Best of luck to him in his next pursuit!

There are 5 new Corps members listed in the ABT website, 2 promoted from the Apprentice group. I hope  K Mc will be promoting some deserving corps members to soloists.

Yes!  And a soloist or two to principal.

Joseph Gorak deserves a promotion and more roles in my opinion. Gemma Bond is seemingly a lifer in the corps and too much time may have passed for her to climb the soloist ladder.

          I just log in and saw the headline'"5 promotions to be announced". I was holding my breath with expectations, when i saw that it was with PNB and not ABT. mad.gif  Are there any promotions coming this season? Maybe in the Spring season?
