In comparing the most recent print program with the current web site, there have been several changes:

 

 http://www.coloradob...company/dancers

 

Dana Benton and Domenico Luciano have been promoted from soloist to principal.

 

Two soloists are missing from the roster entirely: Adam Still and Caitlin Valentine-Elllis

 

Corps members missing from the roster: Lesley Allred, Christopher Ellis, Charlotte Lanning, Kelsie Nobriga

 

That's only 24 listed at this point, but I suppose there could still be additions before the company returns in August.

IMHO, losing Adam Still would be a significant loss. He appeared to this non-expert to have a lot of upside. Certainly he is a dancer who commands the stage when he has a solo.

 

YAY!!! for Dana Benton, who paid her dues and was finally rewarded with this promotion.

Unfortunately, Adam suffered a knee injury last winter that kept him out of Cinderella (as the jester) in February and the mixed bill at the University of Denver in March.

 

I thought he was best as the Chosen One (the Baryshnikov role) in Tetley's Rite of Spring in February 2013. Here's some rehearsal footage: 

 

 

He did peasant PdD with Dana Benton in Giselle in October 2013. Here are some rehearsal clips:

Only official news, please.  (I've removed some posts that don't have links to official news.)
