From her Twitter account and Facebook page, I got the impression Kathryn Morgan will be back performing this season. I certainly hope she is well, as she was truly missed this past season after a glorious 2009-2010 season. Please be well and come back and dance for us, Kathryn! (I know one is not allowed to speculate on the condition of dancers, but this is from her own social media accounts.) She wrote she is back in New York and rehearsing.

Sorry to bum you all out but it looks like (per her Twitter handle)Kathryn won't be back this season. Here's hoping for Nutcracker though. See her posts below from August 19th:

KMorganNYCB Kathryn Morgan
Hello all. Thank you for your kind words and support. Well, I've been 100% honest this whole process and I am going to be honest again...

KMorganNYCB Kathryn Morgan
Few days ago I went for a doc checkup- thinking this would be the last one, and I got a bad report. My thyroid is still not good.
19 Aug

KMorganNYCB Kathryn Morgan
So, I have to sit out ANOTHER season. I'm very upset, but I just want to be 100% well before I get back onstage. But...

KMorganNYCB Kathryn Morgan
Everything else seems to be in line that was previously awful (liver, blood count, etc) so I should be back for Nutcracker. I'm 99% sure!

KMorganNYCB Kathryn Morgan
Not fun, but this is what I have to do to be at my best when I come back. I will keep tweeting though and let you know what I'm doing.
19 Aug

KMorganNYCB Kathryn Morgan
I PROMISE I will be back! This is NOT the end of my career! ;-) Lucky for me, I get a whole new start!

Krystin, thank you for giving us this news. I feel very sorry that Kathryn Morgan has been so ill. I hope and pray she recovers fully and can resume her very promising career.

Kathryn stated on her twitter page that she expects to be back on stage around the fourth week of Nutcracker. I'm glad her condition is under control.

Just last week, the New York Times posted a long and interesting article about Hypothyroidism and its relation to many problems, including psychiatric disorders.

I too hope that her long absence will soon be over, and she can reclaim her place on stage and in our hearts.

I checked the casting for the week ending December 24, and Kathryn Morgan still has not been cast. There's only one week left of the season. I have not checked what she has said on Twitter, as Twitter is a mystery to me. I am rather heartsick at not seeing Morgan's name yet again on the casting list. What a talent she is. She was one of my favorite dancers and I am fearful for her career. Does anyone have any information?

Are you on Facebook? She's very active there: https://www.facebook...hp?id=510105185. She posts lots of comments and advice, but no word of her upcoming performance schedule.

I do too. As the young girl in Ives, Songs she was one of the most naturally lovely dancers that I've seen.

Well, I've never seen her dance!  I am a NYCB devotee who mostly sees the company at SPAC, although last two years I've subscribed to their annual season in NYC for 4-5 performances.  But I never saw Kathryn dance live, only a clip or two.  Yet I just know she's wonderful.  And so I miss her and wish she'd come back to NYCB soon.   I get what you say about her naturalness.   Most important, I hope she's regained her health.  ~ Karen
