    Job posting for artistic director

    I wonder if being a “star” might be more important in the United States because ballet companies here don’t get the kind of public funding that a lot of major European companies have. On on the basis of his leadership in the past year, I agree that Jon Stafford would be a great pick. My main concern would be over potential nepotism with his wife and sister still being in the company.

    I would also add Villarini-Velez to the up-and-comers.

    I agree. And Maria K glaring at the make up artist cracked me up.

    The cast from the last run were Bouder/Veyette, Hyltin/Finlay, T. Peck/T. Angle, Fairchild/de Luz, and Lovette/Garcia.

    My bet would be that Gordon and Huxley will be the ones to debut as Desire. I'm rooting for Indiana Woodward as Aurora, but I think Pereira might get cast (with Huxley).

    Skylar Brandt in Big Ballet-Moscow

    New episode is up. I'm not too fond of the contemporary choreography, but I like those costumes. The male judges also gave Skylar a standing ovation. What a lovely gesture.

    Nutcracker 2018

    Anyone know who “C. Miller” is? She’s cast as Coffee on 12/9. Is it Clara Frances? Edit: It is indeed Clara Frances. Her dancer page has been updated to reflect this.

    ABT 2019 Met Season

    Does the short met season start in 2019? How many ballets can they actually squeeze in that time frame? Edit: It starts in 2021

    I think Pereira is also getting more principal opportunities recently (Baiser, Coppelia, and Allegro Brilliante). The female ranks are just so strong that I find it much more difficult to discern what management thinks. I’m hoping Lauren King also gets more opportunities I think her dancing is just wonderful. Did Ashly Isaacs dance this past season?
