It’s official. Jose Carayol, longtime YAGP judge, and former head of Joffrey Ballet Studio Co and their trainee program takes a top spot at the Royal Ballet School Whitelodge. Jose will be heading up the title Artistic Manager of White Lodge and Deputy Artistic Director. Jose put out a very nice moment of reflection Tuesday Morning on Instagram as he is super excited to take on his duties in his new role.
The portrait was taken by me at YAGP Finals:
Here is Jose coaching Dmitri Kulev’s Rhyan Foerster during pirouettes at one of the 2021 YAGP scholarship classes during finals in Tampa.
