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...
19 Aug

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.

One of the better ballet-related resources on Facebook: Kathryn Morgan (NYCB, soloist) has an official "fan page." She updates frequently, posts tons of pictures, and even offers advise to aspiring dancers. Ms Morgan lots of subscribers, nearly 62,000 at last count, and deservedly so. This is a must-suscribe page for anyone who happens to have a Facebook account, and who likes NYCB or ballet in general.

Kathryn Morgan made this post today on her FB page:

Hi Everyone. Many of you are wondering why I am no longer listed on NYC Ballet's website. Well, at this time, I have decided to leave the company to focus on some medical issues I am still dealing with. I have been battling them for awhile, and trying to be onstage and get well at the same time is just not working. I absolutely left of my own accord, knowing this was the best decision at this time. However, rest assured, my career is FAR from over! I just need to be 150% well before I attempt to get back onstage. To have a successful ballet career you need to be completely dedicated to the art. I cannot do that while I am still battling some health challenges. Thank you for ALL of your kind words. It means the world. I will still continue to post pictures/notes/and anything else I can. I PROMISE I will be back onstage in the future and plan on coming back better than ever!


I look forward to seeing her dancing again!

It was a nice touch for her to mention that it was her decision to leave. That way she puts to rest any speculation that Martins forced her out. I hope she can come back, but more importantly I hope she and her doctors can resolve/treat her medical problems. Without your health, almost everything else in life is meaningless.

I looked for Kathryn at SPAC this and last year and wondered why she didn't dance there two seasons in a row. Kathryn, the best of recoveries to you and I hope to see you dancing soon.
