New dancers-Carrenno and Le Cour
Posted 09 September 2002 - 07:38 AM
The NYCB website lists two new dancers-Yoel Carrenno. I think the dancer is Israeli, but that is the only things I could glean from the web. Does anyone have info on this new dancer??
Ask Le Cour, Nila Martin's half brother who has danced with the Royal Danish Ballet has also joined NYCB.

The NYCB website has his names spelled as Carrenno, but that could easily be a typo. I think you are right about Carrenno-I just happened to pull his name up on a site about a performance in Israel.
It's exciting to see that NYCB has hired some new male talent. BTW, Ask la Cour is about 20 and was in the RDB corps.

There's no direct link, but if you go to
choose In English (link, top right of board), then Ballet from the left side menu, then Staff, then corps de ballet and scroll down, there he is. Click on his name and get a picture and brief bio.
Thanks for the update, Sneds.

Err, I'm a bit lost in the Martins family. So he is Nilas Martins' half brother on his mother's side?
(That's off-topic, but it was interesting to notice that the former POB school student Cedric Lambrette was hired in the RDB's corps de ballet).
There seem to be quite a lot of dancers called Carreno, aren't they?

Ask and Nilas's mother is Lise laCour. She was married to Peter Martins, but I don't know about Ask's father.
laCour's hiring at NYCB must be very recent since, as Alexandra points out, his bio is still up on the 2002-03 version of the RDB website.
P.S. Yoel is Jose Manuel Carreno's half brother and it's more often spelled Joel Carreno. If you search on Google with this spelling, you can find many reviews of his dancing. They seem to indicate that he has much of his brother's talent and is a good partner.

maybe it was a glitch on their site

Maybe his biography was deleted by mistake when they updated the site.
The new corps dancers' biographies (e.g. Katie Berstrom and Savannah Lowery) can now be seen on the NYCB website.

The winter season brochure arrived today, and had an updated roster. Yoel Carreno was hired as a soloist and Ask laCour as a corps member.

Yoel Carreño of Cuba and Ask la Cour of Denmark to Join New York City Ballet
New York City Ballet announced today that Sofiane Sylve, a first soloist with Het Nationale Ballet, will appear with NYCB as a guest artist for the 2002/2003 winter season.
A native of Nice, France, Ms. Sylve studied ballet at the Académie de Dance in Nice and began her career as a first soloist with the ballet company of the Stadttheater in Karlsrhue, Germany, in 1990. She joined Het Nationale Ballet of the Netherlands in 1993 and was promoted to first soloist in 1998. Her repertory includes the full-length classics, as well as the choreography of George Balanchine, Jerome Robbins, William Forsythe, and Hans van Manen.
Ms. Sylve will make her first New York City Ballet appearances during the Company’s annual holiday season of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker™. This will mark the first time that Ms. Sylve has danced in the United States.
The Company also announced today that Yoel Carreño is joining New York City Ballet as a soloist. A native of Havana, Cuba, Mr. Carreño was formerly a member of the National Ballet of Cuba and was seen in New York during that company’s 2001 season at City Center. He is the half-brother of American Ballet Theatre’s Jose Manuel Carreño.
In addition, Danish dancer Ask la Cour will join New York City Ballet as a member of the corps de ballet. Born in Copenhagen, Mr. la Cour studied at the Ballet School of The Royal Theatre and joined The Royal Danish Ballet in 2000.
New York City Ballet begins its 2002/2003 season on Tuesday, November 26. For information on NYCB performances call 212-870-5570 or visit www.nycballet.com.
