Wendy Whelan, former principal dancer with New York City Ballet and international dance icon, leads a Balanchine-based master class with a focus on energy, correct and healthy body alignment, musicality, economy of movement, and speed.

Wendy Whelan—widely considered one of the world’s leading dancers—spent 30 years at New York City Ballet dancing virtually all the major Balanchine roles, working closely with Jerome Robbins on many of his ballets, and originating roles in ballets by such notable choreographers as William Forsythe, Twyla Tharp, Alexei Ratmansky, Christopher Wheeldon, Jorma Elo, Shen Wei, and Wayne MacGregor.
