Gelsey Kirkland?


Recommended Posts

Was Gelsey Kirkland one of Balanchine's ballerinas? I read Dancing on my Grave and it mentioned her dancing for him, but I've done research on Balanchine and she's never mentioned.

Balanchine hand picked her for NYCB and proceeded to make several ballets on her (Firebird comes to mind). She left NYCB for ABT in the 70s, I believe.
