Another sad day, we have lost an icon of the Balanchine world, Karin Von Aroldingen. I masterful muse of Mr. B and incredible ballet mistress. I feel very lucky to have worked with her. be able to step into roles today & experience the brilliance she created. I know right now she is doing back bends with Albert with Mr B watching on. RIP Karin and Thankyou.
