They’ve promoted a handful of dancers, all eminently deserving:
Isabella Boylston, who made such a promising début in Giselle last week, has been made a principal (hooray).
The others—Devon Teuscher, Joseph Gorak, Christine Shevchenko, and Zhurbin—are now soloists. Zhurbin is the company’s most compelling actor. Shevchenko has a marvelous glow. Gorak is a hyper-refined technician, possibly the company’s next David Hallberg. And Teuscher is limpid, pure, linear—she was great as the Fairy Godmother in Ashton’s Cinderella.
