New artistic director Nikolaj Hübbe has hired a large group of new dancers, the largest new influx in many years:

Nehemiah Kish (from NBoC)

Corps (all followed by previous affiliation, which might be school in some cases, rather than the actual company):

Holly Jean Dorger (ABT, but must be the school. Also SAB)
* danced lead role in 2007 SAB workshop

J'aime Crandall (Dutch National Ballet corps)
* Kirov Academy and 5 years with DNB

James Clark (NBoC apprentice)
* ... lark.shtml

Bryant Gabriel Steenstra (NBoC apprentice)
* ... stra.shtml

Julien Schittenhelm (Zurich Ballet)

Aurore Casanova (POB)
* originally from Rome Opera Ballet School

Gregory Paul Dean (Scottish Ballet coryphee)
* ... y-dean.htm
*three years with Scottish Ballet

Laure Dougy (Royal Swedish Ballet)
* ... ure_dougy/

Both Dougy and Casanova were gold medal winners in the professional category of the PALMARES DU CHAUSSON D'OR

Of these dancers, I have only seen Dean and Dorger dance that I remember (Clark and Randall I've probably seen at the Edinburgh Festival, but have no memory of them), and only Dean in performance. Dean has been one of the Scottish Ballet's real up and coming talents (and tall), so it's a real coup for Hübbe to have lured him away from Scotland.

My impression of the men is that they are all quite tall - based on his NBoC photo, Clark has particularly stunning lines

Four 2nd year apprentices have also gotten corps contracts:

Alban Lendorf
Hilary Guswiler
Emilie Schack
Amalie Adrian

This article confirms the departure of Isabella Sokolowska (to Greece and a new mum), Nadia Dahl and Mie Fjelstrup.

Also, three new aspirants: Emma Håkansson, Stephanie Sahlgren and Josephine Berggreen
