For Bavarian State Ballet, Munich: Lisa-Maree Cullum - because she is the one who steps in whenever anyone is injured. With any male partner. Last Nutcracker series (Neumeier, some years ago) she danced almost every performance after one after the other Louises had to pull out...
This season, I heard she was waiting in the wings during the Don Q performances as it was not sure whether the lead would be able to carry on, although I have no proof for this...
(This is not meant to disqualify any of the other dancers, of course!)

pmeja, a baby started screaming during the white swan pas e deux, but Murphy took no notice and was wonderful.

Thank you for that, Ophelie. It's a happy time when one's favorite dancer gets promoted! Congratulations to both of you :)

For Pennsylvania Ballet, I nominate Tara Keating and Charity Eagens, two corps dancers who have shone in individual roles and have also helped to lead an increasingly unified and elegant corps.

And for most exciting newcomer, I nominate Riolama Lorenzo!
