I was talking to one of the dancers who has been in the company a long time yesterday, and she agreed with me that last season saw an unusual # of injuries. She added that many were major. Both Weese and Sloan have hip injuries. Angle and Crenshaw broke a foot. Abergel had a foot injury. She should, at least, be back in Vienna Waltzes. Weese apparently has a ways to go in recovery. Sad to hear. BUt, I guess it's the nature of *beast*.

I'll certainly be there!

She was quite wonderful in the role she origniated in 'The Four Seasons'.
One of my favorite ballets to see her dance was 'In G Major'.

What made me realize it was seeing Bouder and Mandrajieff cast in Mercurial Manoeuvres, in the roles Chris Wheeldon made on Stein (when she was Elena Diner) and on Aubrey Morgan just two years ago.
An awful lot of turnover even for a company this size.

I don't think the turnover at NYCB is unusual for a company of that size. There seem to be periods when little changes, and then periods when many dancers leave for other challenges and companies. That's the natural aging process of a company-especially in the corps where dancers may realize that they are probably never going to be soloists, and decide to dance elsewhere or pursue another career.
Also, at smaller, more regional companies, the dance seasons are shorter and the workload less grueling, thus dancers are likely to hang around longer. Actually, if you read my post on the stats of NYCB vs ABT, it turns out the majority of the corps have been at NYCB for at least 4 years, many for far longer.
Also, just because a ballet is not being danced with the orignal dancers does not mean the dancers have left (though in this case they have) since there are almost always multiple casts.

She and ABT's Angela Snow grew up together at The School of Oregon Ballet Theatre, and it seems that both of their futures should be bright.

[B]Can anyone tell me if Ellen Ostrum is in the company yet? Or is she still an apprentice?
I don't believe she is even apprentice. I did see her tonight in the corps at the SAB workshop tonight...

Jared Angle told me he is back taking class.
As you might have seen on the PBS broadcase, Darius Crenshaw is back dancing.

After reading the Ballet Alert reviews of the SAB workshop, I see that there are many ahead of Ellen.
