Apologies for the format.  I've pasted it in from a Word document but the spacing seems to have gone awry!

It might help if I paste in the relevant section of the Promotions, Joiners and Leavers press release as it relates to this contract thread:


"The Royal Ballet welcomes five dancers to the Company for the 2014/15 Season as part of the new Aud Jebsen Young Dancers Programme. The programme provides an opportunity for up to six recently graduated dancers to receive a year’s contract to work alongside the corps de ballet of The Royal Ballet.  In addition the dancers will be offered mentoring and coaching and have the opportunity to perform with the Company. This year’s Aud Jebsen Young Dancers are Grace Blundell and Grace Horler, both from The Royal Ballet School, Ashley Scott and Ashleigh McKimmie from English National Ballet School and Maria Barroso from Semperoper Ballet, Dresden."

Interesting and encouraging to see that Johan Kobborg is taking four into his National Romanian Ballet.

If it's not too personal a question, is Edivaldo Souza da Silva a relative of English National Ballet's splendid Junor Souza?
