Meet Our New Company Dancers: Promotions and New Members

Meet Our New Company Dancers: Promotions and New Members

This season we are proud to announce six promotions, five new Company members, and five apprentices. We’re very eager to see what they bring to their new roles with SF Ballet.

Join us in congratulating former Soloist Carlo Di Lanno who has been promoted to principal dancer; former Corps de Ballet members Francisco Mungamba, Julia Rowe, Wei Wang, and WanTing Zhao who are now soloists; and former Apprentice Blake Kessler who has been promoted to the rank of corps de ballet.

Joining the Company are Aaron Robison as principal dancer; Angelo Greco as soloist; and Elizabeth Mateer and Natasha Sheehan as corps de ballet members. Ludmila Bizalion (formerly Campos) will also be returning to the Company as a corps de ballet member.

We also applaud five SF Ballet School Trainees who have been promoted to the rank of apprentice: Alexandre Cagnat, Shené Lazarus, Davide Occhipinti, Nathaniel Remez, and Isabella Walsh.
