    Sergei Polunin

    Good for Dupont. It's a strong stand in the face of offensive comments.
  2. I'm sad about Robert Stephen, too. He was a solid performer.
  3. My daughter attended a dress rehearsal of Paz de la Jolla the other night. Dylan Tedaldi spoke to the group in the intermission and said he was leaving the company to go to a contemporary company in Israel.

    It appears as though it's for a charitable cause, though: http://firstbookcanada.org

    They made a last minute casting change and Elena Lobsanova debuted on the 10th with Naoya Ebe. I believe she was replacing Svetlana Lunkina who has been moved to the 15th.

    I'm so excited to hear about Siphe November. He just graduated from the National Ballet School last June where he was the "star" for a long time. He is relatively short but an amazing dancer and his jumps are incredible. It doesn't surprise me that he's already getting solo roles. I think he's one to watch. You might want to watch this video. His life story is quite incredible, too.

    My daughter was at the SB dress rehearsal and said the same things as you regarding Peng-Fei Jiang. She couldn't figure out why they had given him the role so soon. On the other hand, she was ecstatic about Harrison James and Jurgita Dronina.

    Wendy Whelan -- Into The Future

    I'm not sure but these pictures seem to glorify emaciation. As a former ED sufferer, I find it painful to see.
