Scout Forsythe - ABT

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm not in the dance world, just love watching ballet BTS and getting to know dancers. I have zero ability to judge dance lol.

I love Scout Forsythe's youtube videos, she's got great spirit.

It seems she has been a Corps de Ballet dancer at ABT for 5.5 years now.

That seems like a long time to be in the corps but just my guess.

Anyone know if 5.5 years in the corps means she will likely not get promoted to Soloist?  Or there's still a slim chance? Or still a very good chance?

Just looking to guage/understand better as I want her to do well! :)

ABT has been known to very slow to promote. 5 years is not long in the corps de ballet nor does it mean she won’t be promoted to soloist. Misty Copeland, for ex, spent 6 years in the corps before her promotion to soloist and she was one of the youngest ever promoted to soloist at ABT (according to the press at the time, don’t know if that is true or not).
