    Dancers who look alike

    I happen to think Kathryn Morgan resembles Fonteyn both in looks and style of dancing. Just look at these photos: Margot: http://www.nndb.com/people/765/000113426/margot-fonteyn.jpg Kathryn: http://www.nycballet.com/company/personnel...tic/morgan.html Kathryn, while not a fully developed dancer yet, has that ballerina quality that Margot had. They both have beautiful lyrical styles and great interpretations of the roles that they perform. Plus, they both have big beautiful eyes. Does anyone else agree?

    Casting for Feb. 10-15, 2009

    Casting update- I was just at the state theatre getting a ticket and noticed on the casting sheet in the lobby that Kathryn Morgan is replacing Yvonne Borree in Romeo and Juliet for both performances tomorrow, Feb. 14th. There seemed to be no other changes. Has she done this role before? I know she did Peter Martins' Romeo and Juliet.

    I noticed in the program at New York City Ballet that Kathryn Morgan is the new Janice Levin Dancer honoree. Congratulations to her!

    Casting for January 23-28

    I definitely think Kathryn will get another chance. I believe that Carousel goes quite a few times in the winter season. I can't wait to see Kathryn do it again. I saw her gala performance. What an absolute beauty! She is definitely one to watch! But I am sure Tiler will be wonderful, too!

    Nutcracker Reviews, 2006

    Yes, I also agree that Ana Sophia Sheller gave a fantastic Dew Drop performance. She is so techically strong as well as a performer. She and Tiler Peck should definitely receive a promotion soon. I also loved Adam Hendrickson in Candy Cane, and Melissa Barak and Amar Ramasar gave a strong performance as Hot Chocolate. As for Kathryn Morgan and David Prottas, I couldn't agree more! David is such a clean dancer. It seems as though every position and every line is picture perfect. Kathryn is clearly going to be a big name in the future. Her Carousel performance was just beautiful, and she has so much stage presence at such a young age. Didn't she also do Juliet in Saratoga? That is really amazing that she is getting these roles as an apprentice! However, I think that every single dancer in City Ballet is incredible, and kudos to them all for making each Nutcracker performance so wonderful!
