As for Greta, she is wonderful to me in so many roles. I think I'll always remember her Giselle, she was spectacular in both acts.
But for my favorite NBoC ballerina, I honestly can't decide between two of them.

I'm a real fan of Toronto (it has such good associations for me, because I know so many nice people up there), and I hope to see more of the company (and other dance in TO) on future visits.

I saw a lot of Greta last season, and she is also an incredible dancer! She is so confident and one can really sit back and enjoy her dancing because her technique is so strong. I never worry that she'll fall off balance or not finish a turn (I saw her in Sleeping Beauty Act 3- nearly flawless). Naturally, she is made to dance Kitri or in Rubies or the summer pdd of Kudelka's 4 Seasons. She is also growing as an artist, and each performance has added depth. I loved her Juliet last winter, and her terpsichore and calliope as well.
Add Xiao Nan Yu and I'll never be able to pick a real favourite! She is no doubt a very special dancer and person. She continues to outdo herself and makes each role her own. Her stage presence is a wonderful gift that she was born with. I'll never forget her in Solitaire, Serenade, Desir, or Swan Lake.
Leigh, I'm a real fan of NYC;)

Leigh, I also saw C.H. Goh in Don Q with Antonijevic. I love both dancers very much, but I thought they were miscasted as Kitri and Basilio. (Maybe better choice of role for Goh would be Queen of Dryads?) I hope you get to see Greta Hodgkinson as Kitri one day! I agree with Paquita, it's her role (but she is perfect to me as Giselle too, she's such a versatile dancer)
(And me too, I'm big fan of both New York and Toronto)

Andrea Olteneau is also on to watch in the corps.
I love Nan Yu, Chan Hon Goh, and Sonia Rodriguez.
