The 2022/23 San Francisco Ballet Season will mark my 50th year as a full-time AGMA dancer (1973-2023). In addition to dancing with the company, I have also served for many years as a Ballet Master under the Artistic Directorship of Helgi Tomasson, as well as a resident choreographer during the Co-Artistic Directorship of Lew Christensen and Michael Smuin. At least 25 of my creations have been performed by SFB, including internationally acclaimed ballets such as Ibsen's House, Lambarena, Aria, and Aquilarco. My work as a choreographer and Principal Character Dancer continued as a member of the Company under Artistic Director Helgi Tomasson, as well as under newly appointed Artistic Director Tamara Rojo. I am very proud of this unique and unprecedented accomplishment.


Come celebrate with me in 2022 and 2023 by attending my choreography throughout the United States and international venues.
