There is a link if you Google her that leads to quite a few Broadway shows. La Cage aux Folles, Movin Out as well as TV, One Life to Live. She was quite a performer. Hopefully she is still doing well in theatre.
Hopefully she is doing well. I was disappointed when she left the ABT. She was such a lovely dancer!

I found this part shocking but admire Ms. Tuttle so much:
I worked in construction as a project manager for a renovation company. I learned so much about personalities, not just about the work. How do you keep the client happy and the boss happy and the construction guys happy? A difficult time. Iím sitting there cleaning out construction sites, and Iíve got a toilet brush, and Iím like, But I used to have a wand and a crown! Whereís my tutu? [Laughs] But I feel Iím pretty balanced egowise, and I donít mean to toot my own horn, because Iím not like that, but you have to do what you have to do, and this is a hard city. But there are moments where you hit a wall of reality. And strange little thingsówhen youíre a ballerina, people come to your stage door, and donors are like, ďCan we take you out for a drink?Ē and then Iím in construction changing light bulbs for the donors. Not the actual donorsóI never ran across the same person, but the type. Itís been really eye-opening. I feel very grounded in the reality of youíve got to do what youíve got to do. Iíve got compassion for everybody. The guy whoís driving the bus isnít less than Donald Trump.
She seems like an incredibly strong woman who was able to handle a hard time in her life with a lot of grace.

I have to admit that the last time I saw her perform with ABT was Swan Lake. It was during the "Moving Out" period, and I was very disappointed. Maybe the Broadway demands are impossible to maintain along with the ballet demands.
I know that she was married to Charles Askegard at one point when he was at ABT.
She seems like a great lady who has a lot to contribute in many ways. I wish her well.
