I'm not sure if this was mentioned before, but Sofiane Sylve is now titled the Artistic Director of Ballet San Antonio (she was Artistic Advisor for Ballet San Antonio, and designer of the school's curriculum):

BSA has performances planned for this Fall:

Swan Lake Choreography by Julius Reisinger
Adapted and Staged by Sofiane Sylve, Mary Jo Crews and Rafael Ferreras
The Sleeping Beauty Choreography by Marius Petipa
Adapted and Staged by Sofiane Sylve, Mary Jo Crews and Rafael Ferreras

A Night at the Castle is an evening especially curated as an introduction to the great classics, with exciting and virtuosic moments interpreted by the most beloved fairy tales characters. The Rose Adagio from The Sleeping Beauty and the infamous Black Swan pas de deux from Swan Lake are only a few of the iconic pieces presented! Come celebrate Aurora’s wedding with us and join your favorite fairies and cavaliers for the most whimsical party of the realm. It’s an evening not to be missed!

That sounds like lovely news for Sylve. Somewhat puzzled by the reference to Reisinger (the choreographer of the Moscow pre-Petipa/Ivanov Swan Lake) followed by description of program that includes "the infamous Black Swan pas de deux" which presumably refers to something that is Petipa (or, at any rate, "Petipa" -- as handed down by tradition).  Wonder if that isn't a mistake....??

Looks to me like an inexperienced staffer who doesn't know much about ballet looked this up on Wikipedia and had no idea who Reisenger (or Petipa) was! Infamous fouettes, perhaps?

Yes, that sounds about right...

I was looking online to see if Lauren Strongin has given birth yet (it must be any day now). There's no update yet aside from this post from husband Joe Walsh: https://www.instagram.com/p/CUDi8e1vKXd/

But I noticed that Strongin's IG page now states "Stanford University 2023". I was assuming that she was working on a post-graduate degree but apparently she actually transferred from City College San Francisco. She was in the LEAP program at St. Mary’s College too as far as I know. Strongin is an undergraduate in Anthropology but may be trying to get into Medicine:
