About Kathryn Morgan       

Kathryn began her professional career in 2006 as an apprentice with New York City Ballet, and was promoted to soloist in 2009. She left the company in 2012 while battling an auto-immune illness, and made an awe-inspiring return to the stage seven years later as a soloist with Miami City Ballet.

She danced with MCB for a year before making a decision to step away from company life in 2020 to pursue dancing on her own terms.


As a performer, Kathryn is known for her feminine, artistic quality and musicality; some of her more notable performances include Aurora in Peter Martins’ Sleeping Beauty, Juliet in Peter Martins’ Romeo & Juliet, and the Striptease girl in George Balanchine’s Slaughter on Tenth Avenue.
