I’m proud and excited to welcome you to my website. It’s filled with everything that reflects my passion for my work, my career in dance and my many other activities, including teaching, lecturing, mentoring and directing my ballet company.
Though my work as a principal dancer at New York City Ballet is of course most important, during my season breaks I direct Stars of American Ballet. We tour both nationally and internationally, bringing ballet and dance education and outreach to far-flung communities, including most recently a thrilling trip to Mongolia.
This November we’re off to the South, Alabama and Mississippi, and then on to Texas, fulfilling my mission to bring great quality dance choreography and artistry to places that don’t often experience the joy and spiritual uplift of such performances. We also host master classes and community lectures. Please visit our website by clicking on the Stars logo next to this posting and see all that we’ve accomplished. There is much more to come – keep your eye on Stars!
My work as a teacher and dance educator has expanded greatly as well. I am the Artistic Advisor to Manhattan Youth Ballet, the Associate Artistic Director of the New York State Summer School for the Arts in Saratoga Springs and I frequently travel to conduct workshops and master classes throughout the country. My favorite annual event, Dance Against Cancer, which I co-founded and now co-produce and direct, absorbs much of my energy each spring, as this is a cause I hold dear.
I hope you’ll enjoy navigating my site and getting the chance to know me better. There’s a lot to explore and more to come in the future. Watch this spot on my home page for news and updates on all of my work.
