NYCB's Rank Climbers

December 10, 2009

The wait is over! NYCB’s winter season kicks off Jan. 5 with a new piece by Peter Martins and George Balanchine’s Who Cares? The s

eason runs through Feb. 28 with 57 performances by the company, including its six recently promoted dancers. Tyler Angle, Robert Fairchild, Tiler Peck, Amar Ramasar and Teresa Reichlen were all promoted to principal and Kathryn Morgan (DS January 2008 cover girl) was made soloist. 


Morgan tells DS that she was surprised by the timing of the promotion—which happened during a rehearsal period! “I feel like my standards are even higher now, as a soloist,” she says. “It’s important for me to not get complacent. This has compelled me to work even harder.”
