Weese leaving NYCB

A Departure  By Pia Catton  05 Feb 2007
After 14 years, New York City Ballet says farewell to Principal Dancer Miranda Weese in February.

Of all the many reasons to come to New York City Ballet during the winter season, one of the most bittersweet is that February is the last chance to catch Principal Dancer Miranda Weese with the Company. After this season, Ms. Weese will move to the West Coast to dance with the Pacific Northwest Ballet as a guest artist.

What Ms. Weese leaves behind is a legacy of gorgeous, heartfelt dancing. “I’ve had wonderful opportunities, and the bulk of my artistic achievements have been here,” she said. “But at this point in my life, I’m thinking about ways to prolong my career, and one way to do this is to find a company — and a city! — with a slower pace.”
