  1. Thanks. I've tried again; this time it worked. Curious.
  2. I tried accessing the Supreme Court document online - it said that the document is not available for public viewing at this time. FauxPas, I assume you were able to access it?
  3. The link worked for me. Thank you for mentioning this sandik.
  4. Found this article from 2011, which notes that the company was in the process of developing a social media policy. The article gives some examples of things that the company wouldn't want dancers to do. NCYB social media policy from WSJ 2011
  5. If memory serves, NYCB did develop a social media policy for the dancers a number of years ago. Given this, it's possible that posts with derogatory comments regarding management or other company staff members could result in disciplinary action such as termination (though I would assume termination would be after other steps are taken).

    Alban Lendorf Has Left RDB

    He was supposed to perform in Vail earlier this month (as per the big glossy program), but did not. I assumed that this was a result of injury, but no announcement was made. (Misty Copeland was to have performed on Friday August 3, but it was announced that night that she was ill and would not be dancing). I hope Mr. Lendorf is well.
  7. Found this article from 2017, saying that he will step down from Vail: Woetzel
  8. I was in Vail for a number of days over the first week, so through the International Evenings. Saw three performances and one rehearsal. No mention was made about Woetzel leaving (though I thought it had been announced quite some time ago). He was very present and involved, so one had no indication that there was any succession planning going on. I did see "Suite of Dances" btw - both in rehearsal and in the International Evening II.
  9. off topic a bit, but I found this news interesting in light of the NBOC dancers going to ENB. Shale Wagman, winner of this year's Prix de Lausanne, has taken a corps contract at ENB: Canadian dancer goes to ENB
  10. I wish both these dancers well, and will miss seeing them onstage in Toronto. I don't know why the company didn't announce these moves along with the promotions, as they normally do. It's been my great pleasure to watch Robert Stephen perform since he was a student at the National Ballet School, and I'm so glad that I got to see his cast in "Men in Black" this past Sunday. I am incredibly sad that to learn that he is leaving the company.
  11. Tedaldi is a wonderfully talented dancer. No less so in my view than the two who were promoted. His height is similar to theirs as well. He and Campbell joined the company the same year; Frola the following year. I actually haven't seen much of Frola in a leading role (that blasted Sunday matinee again), but his photo appears often in publicity material and he has been getting some nice casting in the last season and a bit so obviously KK et al liked him. Would be interesting to know whether the ENB contract came before he was given principal status with NBOC.
  12. Thank you kbarber. I hadn't seen this anywhere official as yet, just found this link: https://www.broadwayworld.com/toronto/article/Skylar-Campbell-And-Francesco-Gabriele-Frola-Promoted-To-Principal-Dancer-at-the-National-Ballet-of-Canada-20180618 I've heard about a dancer leaving the company, but have yet to see anything about that news officially.
  13. posted this afternoon on NBOC instagram: nationalballet2018/19 Promotions: Congratulations to Skylar Campbell and Francesco Gabriele Frola on being promoted to Principal Dancer. nationalballet2018/19 Promotions: Jack Bertinshaw will be promoted to First Soloist. nationalballet2018/19 Promotions: Congratulations to Christopher Gerty, Spencer Hack and Miyoko Koyasu who will be promoted to Second Soloist.
  14. If memory serves, the gala is tonight. Historically promotions are announced just after the gala. Predictions anyone?

    2017-18 season

    I agree with you both about the Shanghai segment. It made me feel quite uncomfortable, to be honest, and the dancers actually looked a bit uncomfortable themselves.
