I'm posting this here, because it will impact so many companies going forward.


The Royal Ballet School tweeted"


Well done to our 2014 grads - 100% jobs in top companies! See where they're going here: http://bit.ly/1otSqqD 



Here's the full URL to their website, which lists all of the graduates and their new companies:




It's great that two are going to Sarasota, where Iain Webb is establishing an Ashton tradition, and four are going to National Romanian Ballet, which happily is getting well-deserved recognition through Cojocaru and Kobborg.  (Two have Italian first and last names, and if they are Italian-speakers, Romanian shouldn't be that much of a stretch.)


Congratulations to them all and to the companies that hired them :flowers:

Well done to all!

Was just looking at the list and spotted this "Hannah Bettes (2nd Year) – Boston Ballet". Would anyone know what the 2nd year bit refers to? I thought the school was just two years?

Wonderful that they all got contracts!


@cycological: The Royal Ballet School (upper school professional course) is three years. (most are, I think) The third year encompasses extensive performing experience, which probably makes it look as if it is not "school" anymore. 


See: http://www.royalball.../covent-garden/ - for particulars. :)

Thank you Diane! Put it down to newbie idiocy of not checking my facts!
