Hey everyone! Today I wanted to share Kathryn Morgan, former NYCB soloist, and her journey though the world of ballet.
Kathryn grew up in Mobile, Alabama and started dancing at a local studio from a young age. After attending the summer course at the School of American Ballet, she enrolled as a full time student for the winter course. When Kathryn joined the New York City Ballet in 2006 as an apprentice, she immediately started to receive attention. She was quickly given a permanent contract in the corps de ballet and was promoted soloist three years after joining the company. Kathryn has performed many lead roles including Dew Drop and Sugar Plum (Nutcracker), Aurora (Sleeping Beauty), and Juliet (Romeo and Juliet), which she performed in place of an injured principal dancer only several months into her career with NYCB.
