Congrats to all of the dancers that were promoted, not many surprises there. It's also great that Jillian Vanstone received that award, she is very talented and has amazing technique- in an on-stage class she was throwing quintuple (sp.?) pirouettes!! I haven't seen much of Nehemiah Kish this season, but he was good in Intermezzo.
