Kathryn Morgan began studying ballet at age three in Mobile, Alabama under the direction of Winthrop Corey, a former principal dancer with the National Ballet of Canada and the Royal Winnipeg Ballet. Kathryn attended the summer program at the School of American Ballet in 2004 and enrolled as a full time student that fall. She joined New York City Ballet as an apprentice in June of 2006 and became a member of the corps de ballet of the Company in February of 2007. In October 2009, Kathryn was promoted to soloist. She left the company due to an autoimmune illness in 2012. She has since regained her health and currently performs, teaches, and speaks around the country, runs two highly successful YouTube channels, her podcast “The Kathryn Morgan Show”, writes a column for “Dance Spirit Magazine”, and continues to work on many other exciting projects. Kathryn is currently on faculty at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Houston, Texas.
