An interview with Zachary Catazaro.
"I've done around 20 principal roles. Things are looking good," said Catazaro, a member of NYCB's corps de ballet. "It's a transitional point in the company. Four principal dancers are retiring and it's my turn to really step up to the things that they're giving me. I'm usually either understudying principal roles or performing them."
Major roles have been coming frequently for Catazaro, who was hired as an apprentice by New York City Ballet in 2007. He's been Romeo in two runs of "Romeo and Juliet," and last season danced prominently in Christopher Wheeldon's "Soiree Musicale" and Balanchine's "Western Symphony."
