    It took Adrian D-W 10 years to be promoted to principal: he joined in 2003, was promoted to soloist in 2010 and principal in 2013. Ask La Cour was 11 years -- joined in 2002, soloist 2003, principal 2013. It took Georgina Pazcoguin and Lauren King 10 years just to be promoted to soloist. It took Troy Schumacher 12 years to be promoted to soloist.

    New York City Ballet Fall Season

    NYCB also has a much, much longer season where everyone is together. I think it's the longest season for an American ballet company. Fall season, the craziness of Nutcracker season, winter season, spring season, touring in the summer. So whether you like these people or not, you have to find a way to be in the same space as them because guess what, you're stuck with them.

    Tess Reichlen picking up Joaquin will never not be adorable. I also must say that NYCB knows how to seem like a happy family when doing farewells. This has not been the case with some recent ABT farewells, which had glaring no-shows and general awkwardness.

    I'm really pulling for Indiana Woodward to be promoted to principal. I think she's an amazing talent who just brightens up the stage whenever she dances.

    Guys I really apologize I accidentally deleted the farewell video from my own channel. I reuploaded it:

    Re: Veyette because I was there one awful night he was doing Donizetti Variations. He landed hard on a jump, you heard something CRACK from the audience, and he limped offstage. Ashley Bouder improvised the rest of the ballet on her own, and constantly looked into the wings. He never came out for curtain calls. He has never been the same since.

    I don't have an issue with Martins' Sleeping Beauty or La Sylphide. I think both of them work well with the company.

    I think Harrison Ball might get tapped for Apollo. He definitely has the "look" and is making a good comeback after a long injury.

    Chase Finlay and Zach Catazaro. Um, yeah.

    Women: Maria, Sara, Ashley, Tess (who picks him up), Abi, Lauren, Sterling, Tiler, Megan Men: Andy, Ask, Jared, Taylor, Tyler, Adrian (in the boot), Daniel, Russell, Joe, Anthony, Gonzalo (with the flag). The interim team of Jonathan Stafford, Rebecca Krohn and Craig Hall came out together. Justin was missing. Then Robbie Fairchild came out. Joaquin's dad. Girlfriend (woman in green). His mom (woman in pink). That's all I could recognize.

    The person with the Spanish flag was Gonzalo Garcia and the woman in green is his girlfriend.

    For those who were curious, Robert Fairchild did make a return to bid Joaquin farewell and he and Tiler Peck were onstage together.

    Think Laracey specializes in adagio dancing and in NYCB the biggest way to get noticed in the corps is to be a really strong allegro technician.

    Was anyone at Joaquin's farewell this afternoon? I was there. A very moving heartwarming occasion: https://humbledandoverwhelmed.blogspot.com/2018/10/farewell-joaquin.html
