Sarah Pasch and Guillaume Basso to Leave PNB at the End of the 2021-22 Season

Recommended Posts

From the press release for the Season Encore Perfomance:

In addition to the previously-announced retirement of soloist Joshua Grant, the Season Encore Performance will be the audience’s opportunity to offer fond farewells to corps de ballet dancers Guillaume Basso and Sarah Pasch who will also be leaving PNB at the end of the season. Basso, who joined the company in 2015, will be focusing his post-PNB career on continued work with Adage Ballet Studio, the Sodo-neighborhood coaching facility he opened with Abby Jayne DeAngelo in 2021. Ms. Pasch studied on scholarship at Pacific Northwest Ballet School, joined the company as an apprentice in 2011 and was promoted to corps de ballet in 2012. She recently finished her degree in Interdisciplinary Studies through Western Governors University, and will be moving on to teach elementary school in the fall, following PNB’s summer tours to New York and Los Angeles.

Mr. Boal continued with special recognition for the retiring corps members: “Guillaume always brings a warm presence to the stage, and shared his laughter and love of dance with all in the studio. As he embarks on an exciting new chapter this summer, we thank him for his many contributions to the company.

“Instantly recognizable for her height and presence, Sarah has served as a role model in the company and, no doubt, will continue to be a role model as she steps into a classroom next fall to begin her new career. What a wealth of experience, professionalism, and joy she will bring to the next generation.”
