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.)

They're now down to 23, as Cara Cooper is no longer listed on their website. I leave Colorado and look what happens: dancers start leaving the Colorado Ballet, Denver decides to tear down the symphony's concert hall, the baseball team finishes in last place every year, ... smile.png

 

One would expect that they will add more dancers, as they have too few women (10) on the roster.
