From Ballerina to Ballet Master
Roman Rykine and Larissa Ponomarenko in George Balanchine's "Diamonds" (Gene Schiavone/The George Balachine Trust)
“Principal dancer and icon Larissa Ponomarenko is retiring from the stage after 18 years with the company. In her new role as Ballet Master (sounds powerful, doesn’t it?) she will have the chance to channel her knowledge and grace to the next generation of dancers — through teaching, coaching and assisting with the production of upcoming performances.” (….)
Congratulations, Larissa! What an exciting honor! And YES we most certainly agree that the title of “Ballet Master” sounds deliciously powerful indeed! Read all about Ponomarenko’s new job title here.
