  1. Wasn’t she a bit later than Pazcoguin and King? There’s still hope!
  2. I’m pretty sure the last PNB student awardee was Andrew Bartee (though I think a number of PNB dancers won awards sometime after they’d joined the company). Nice feather in the cap for Edwards and PNB alike!
  3. I feel more comfortable with this policy in place.
  4. This quote from the plaintiffs' attorney is just heartbreaking: Seeing this story at the same time that we're watching the US women's gymnasts onscreen -- just feeling sick for these vulnerable kids.
  5. Ashton Edwards has announced that they’ll be joining PNB in November as an apprentice, with the intention of performing both “female” and “male” roles. https://www.instagram.com/tv/CQXA_XEAO28/?utm_medium=copy_link PNB has also announced the same on their Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/CQ3vHARgijN/?utm_medium=copy_link
  6. Fantastic, long-awaited news!
  7. Leah Merchant has released a statement on her Instagram on her departure. https://www.instagram.com/p/CQT7TJogcwo/?utm_medium=copy_link
  8. Me three — have heard company members talk about their “home” before, but it finally clicked for me this time, and it was really moving! Loved the way the whole setup moved us from studio to full-color stage. Fits in well with the sense of reawakening all around (in springtime, no less!) as we start to return to society. Can’t wait to be a live audience member again. And I can’t believe how great the dancers’ technique looks after a year of working in their living rooms. Tiler Peck remains an astonishment!
  9. Thanks for linking! WOW there is so much talent.
  10. No longer unexpected, but heartbreaking nonetheless.
  11. Have there been any updates since then? I feel like our expectations of emergence from C-19 keep getting extended and extended 😥
  12. Things are looking pretty rough here in New York, and I think a lot of us are starting to come to terms with this going on for longer than 2 months. I’d be really surprised if the shows are back on in any “normal” way.
  13. Thank you! My goodness, this sounds like true drama...
  14. Speaking of story, to echo someone’s earlier post, is there a synopsis anywhere?
  15. That’s awesome, @Kaysta and @AB'sMom. Can’t wait to hear more.
  16. Agreed. I don’t think of Brandt as a natural swan queen, but those early rehearsal videos on her Instagram story looked promising. Separately: thanks to the advice of those on this board, I made my own subscription with Smirnova/Kim Bayadère, and both the Osipova/Hallberg Giselle and R&J. I think it’s unlikely I’ll be in a position to make all three, but all the exchange information provided here has convinced me to make the plunge. Thanks especially to those who alerted that there was no exchanging in to these performances—you helped me finalize my selection.
  17. Landed on this student newspaper story about NYCB’s Christina Clark choreographing for Columbia University’s student ballet company, Columbia Ballet Collaborative. The story also notes that ABT’s Gabe Stone Shayer is choreographing. I remember that the group received some press some years ago, but I haven’t watched a performance. Has anyone seen them recently? Is it worth the trip?
  18. I know I’m neither the first nor the last to express this sentiment, but Kolpakova is truly a treasure.
  19. Thanks for this, @Leah. Really appreciate the way you articulated this.
  20. I think I saw the same casting in that period — I also remember being awed by Rebecca Krohn.
  21. I feel the same way — she has a real presence. I’m really glad to hear that she’ll still be dancing, and I hope she gets exciting opportunities in Monte Carlo. We’ll have to hope that the company tours the states soon!
  22. Oh wow. Wellington’s been one of my favorites, and I’m going to miss seeing her onstage. Here’s hoping she enjoys her next steps, whatever they may be.
