Robert Tewsley was a guest at the NYCB for about a week two or three years ago (I can't remember what he danced), but I thought he was gorgeous, very dignified elegant. I kept hoping he would come back, but I guess he has found a good home.

Does this mean the company is getting bigger? We have just got 7 dancers from RBS, and now we are getting 6 dancers from other companies. Maybe because we have so many guest artists at the moment, they don't count towards numbers? I'll have to check old programmes to see how many have been in the company in the past. Just a thought!:)
