No formal announcement, but ABT has updated the company roster on the website.
Carlos Molina and Stella Abrera have been promoted to soloist. New company members include David Halberg, Carlos Lopez, Sasha Dmochowski (he or she??)and Angela Snow.
At least one corps member has departed...
I had forgotten that Molina was still in the corps, and was assuming that Sean Stewart and possibly Sascha Radetsky might be next on the list for promotion. Does anyone know why only one guy was promoted, though two male soloist have left? Any thoughts on these promotions?

On a side note, I received a newsletter from ABT today and it mentioned that they are doing 'Giselle' on the west coast in the fall and on the front page about 'Giselle' it reads "Marius Petipa's tragic masterpiece returns!" What happened to Coralli and Perrot? I certainly never thought of 'Giselle' as a Petipa ballet! In a Stagebill from this year though it does give some credit to Petipa. Interesting that I never noticed that. That could be a whole new topic!

Petipa's big addition was the Grand Pas of the Wilis in Act II.
This is the rough overview. I'm sure there are refinements that can be made (I bought "Ballet in the Time of Giselle," but haven't read it yet! Doug???
Back to ABT promotions, I had liked Abrerra very much at the fewe things I saw her do in D.C. this spring. I thought she might be one of the many dancers that are soloists with their home companies but that ABT makes start in the corps.

She stepped on a sewing needle and it broke in her foot and it hit a nerve and she had to get surgery to get it removed.

Angela has a perfect Giselle hair line, huge brown eyes and gorgeous legs and feet.
She reminds me of The Joffrey Ballet's Lisa Bradley.
