Folks on stuff like promotions or projected company moves, PLEASE wait to post until there is a company announcement. It can be harmful to the dancers concerned.

I would not post if it was just a rumour. The information came from the DanceInsider mailing list, which is public and open to anyone. I presume they got the info from an ABT press release. ABT is not good about updating it's webpage, BTW.

I am not going to close the topic, but if there are any further posts on it, they should be from an official source. In this case, that's either NYCB, ABT or Monique Meunier.

In situations like this, though, I am going to err on the side of caution to protect people's privacy. Please wait for an official confirmation if we're talking about a promotion or a move. It's just better for all concerned.

My apologies too..I just assumed that DanceInsider wouldn't have sent the e-mail (not a post, but one of the update e-mails) mentioning Meunier and the ABT promotions if they hadn't gotten an official press release. Now I know to be more cautious!

So, I think she will be missed at NYCB as I believe she is a true Balanchine-style dancer. However, I'm hoping she'll get more of a chance to perform and get a nice partner too. I don't see her in Tudor or Ashton, but how about Don Q., Theme and Variations, Myrta in Giselle, Swan Lake, Symphony in C. Maybe ABT will give another shot at Prodigal Son, this time with Meunier as the Siren. Good luck to her.

To me she was so different from the other dancers at NYCB, she really had a presence and made you watch her.
I hope personally and professionally she's happy with her decision to move, maybe now we'll get to see more of her. I'd love to see her do Les Sylphides

When Elizabeth Loscavio left San Francisco Ballet (a principal) and went to Hamburg she was a soloist.
I suppose it might be like a probationary period of sorts for some dancers as well.
