Welcome To The Bitchery

ABT's other black ballerina

It’s a slow work day so I’ve mostly been looking at pictures on Instagram. I thought I would share some pics of Courtney Lavine. I love her lines so much (I will admit I have a preference for tall and long limbed dancers). She always catches my eye when she’s dancing in the corps, and was lovely in the Cinderella solo in Ratmansky’s new Sleeping Beauty.

Lavine studied at SAB before joining ABT’s Studio Company in 2008. In 2010, she joined ABT as an apprentice and then was taken into the corps de ballet. Definitely one to watch!
