Farrell suffered a knee injury early in her career that put a crimp in her jumping ability and she had chronic knee problems thereafter. Several dancers, including Melissa Hayden, complained that Balanchine stopped giving jumps in class because of her problem, and some steps were changed in some ballets to accommodate it, in Apollo and Concerto Barocco, for example.

Wow- I recently had knee surgery and am still recovering- I wish my teachers would eliminate jumps and fouette turns! Ha! Just kidding.

Easy enough. Just get into George Balanchine's company, catch his eye, get him to fall in love with you, and the rest is cake.
