Why 'brave', Aileen (assuming you mean the move from ENB to RB)?  Rightly or wrongly, to have the Royal Ballet on your CV still carries a huge cachet, and must be a a considerable plus for any young dancer seeking employment in major ballet companies world-wide; there's no doubt ENB's reputation is catching up fast - and not a minute before time - but the RB's name is still the bigger lure.

Brave, because it is difficult to make your way in a large company like the RB which has the pick of corps dancers. I think that you can guess the point which I am making but do not wish to spell out. I am not disputing the fact that the RB's reputation is greater than that of ENB's, and probably always will be.

Congratulations Teo! Since he joined Enb I personally had not heard much about him at all so a move will do him good especially having been all the way through the Royal system from JAs.

 

At least 5O% of the original year that Teo joined WL with are now professional dancers which I think is very good. Two are now with Royal!

Teo will have had two full years with ENB during which time he has had the opportunity to dance several prominent corps roles and has developed hugely as a performer. This, combined with his height and good looks should ensure that he doesn't suffer "the spear carrying fate" of many new joiners at the RB. Good luck to him.

Good news for Teo - I was always a bit surprised he didn't get straight into the RB as he was very definitely a favourite at the school ;-)

But perhaps this was a better route. (And more like at least 75% hfb ;-) )
