Kathryn Morgan to perform in Washington D.C.

Bloch’s Evening With Kathryn Morgan at John F. Kennedy Center For The Performing ArtsBallet in the City, a presentation company that showcases the nation’s top professional ballet dancers for performances and programming, brings Bloch’s Evening With Kathryn Morgan to the John F. Kennedy Center For The Performing Arts’ Terrace Theatre on March 29 and 30 at 7 pm.


Morgan’s performance, sponsored by dance apparel manufacturer Bloch, will be joined by 11-year-old Cleveland native Emily Hain and Morgan’s To Dance co-star Jesse Carrey throughout the evening.


“Performing at a theater as prestigious as The Kennedy Center in a performance highlighting my career is a dream come true,” stated Morgan.


Bloch’s Evening with Kathryn Morgan presents a revamped version of Hans Christian Andersen’s original tale of The Red Shoes, featuring choreography by Donald Garverick to the music of Franz Liszt. The performance showcases Morgan’s career from childhood, to the New York City Ballet, to her present day work as a paragon for burgeoning dancers and ballet fans. The project is the result of collaborative efforts between Morgan, Garverick and Ballet in the City Director Jessica Wallis.


“In the fall, Ballet in the City decided to showcase individual dancers through intimate performances, and as Kathryn and I began collaborating, this performance was born,” stated Wallis.
