Kathryn Morgan began studying ballet at age three at Mobile Ballet in her hometown of Mobile, Alabama. She attended the summer program at the School of American Ballet in 2004 and enrolled as a full time student that fall. While still a Junior in high school, was asked to be an Apprentice with the New York City Ballet. Less than one year later Kathryn became a member of the corps de ballet in February of 2007. In October 2009, Kathryn was promoted to soloist.
In August of 2012 Kathryn left NYCB due to a long-term struggle with hypothyroidism (an under-functioning thyroid). The condition is difficult for anyone to deal with, but it’s especially devastating for dancers as it robs the person of energy and causes weight gain.
Since then, along with focusing on getting her medical condition stabilized, Kathryn has been actively dancing with the Mobile Ballet. Kathryn has also used her background in ballet to create a You Tube channel providing make up tips for the stage as well as other advice for aspiring dancers. Kathryn is now healthy, strong and ready to re-enter the dance world.
