PNB's most recent press release on the Kylian + Pite program coming up in November announces that two dancers will be joining PNB with the program:
Two dancers join PNB’s ranks with these performances of KYLIAN + PITE: New apprentice Christian Poppe was a Professional Division student with PNB School, and has recently returned from PNB’s exchange program with the Royal Danish Ballet. He has danced in many company productions and toured with the company to Las Vegas last fall to perform in the corps of George Balanchine’s Diamonds. Corps member Raphaël Bouchard comes to PNB from Les Ballets de Monte Carlo where he danced for the past nine years. Seattle audiences may remember him from last season when he stepped in at the last second to replace an injured dancer and perform Benvolio in Jean-Christophe Maillot’s Roméo et Juliette. PNB congratulates and welcomes Christian and Raphaël.
Congratulations to PNB's newest company members
