Hooray for Skyla Schreter, late of SAB (and maybe late of Boston Ballet II?), landing here in the Corps.  Very musical young woman.  Very shrewd hire once again by SFB.  How they cherry pick the world's various companies.

Messmer decided not to return to SFB next season.  You missed a lengthy discussion about it under a different thread.

Is it possible that she would return to ABT?

Messmer gave an exit interview in Time Out that effectively burned her bridges.

I think she is really in a very difficult career juncture right now - where next?

Hopefully she'll let us know sooner than later.

The Dancers page on the SFB website has been updated, and Froustey is there, so it's official:  she will be back for 2015.  Good news that somewhat offsets the unfortunate loss of Simone Messmer.

Keeping Froustey is fantastic news for San Francisco Ballet!

Great information to hear - thanks, as always, Peggy. You are my go-to person for news about the SFB, that's for sure! 

 

Joseph Walsh sounds like an exciting addition. I always enjoy seeing the list of new dancers, although I suppose this isn't an official 2015 roster, is it? Bet there's one or two more surprises to come.

The website has been updated, so I guess it's 'official', although you are right, sometimes additions are made.

I noticed that, like last year, Nicole Ciapponi isn't listed on the website among the corps dancers, though she was added a week or so later; however, I never saw her cast for any performance I attended during the 2014 season.

Company rosters and websites are evolving organisms.  It's not that unusual for pre-season additions to occur.

Simone Messmer is back on the soloists page (I swear she wasn't there a week ago). Does this mean she's returning to the company?

I thought she was gone from the roster, too.  Hopefully the current state of the website means she is back.

She wasn't there last week when I checked the SFB website. I hope this means she's in for the entire 2015 season and not just the Italy-Paris tour this July.  In one of her interviews from about a year ago, Froustey said her agreement included her dancing with SFB for the Paris tour. Fingers crossed for Messmer and Froustey both remaining with SFB.
