Jonathan Porretta © Lindsay Thomas

“I am genuinely so proud of my 20-year career with PNB. I can’t even believe it’s been 20 years! It has truly been a dream come true and there aren’t enough words in the universe to convey just how much I have loved dancing here. This is and will always be my home. I feel so privileged to have gotten to dance under the directorship of three incredible directors, Kent Stowell, Francia Russell, and Peter Boal.”

Jonathan Porretta

“My life at PNB has surpassed all my ballerina dreams, and I am so grateful for the fulfilling career I’ve had and the countless opportunities to dance such wonderful and diverse roles. It is hard to say goodbye to this part of my life, one that has filled me with so much joy onstage and shared with the audience, and in the studio with my colleagues and friends.”

Rachel Foster

“You can’t not notice Jonathan Porretta. Part powerhouse, part poet and pure thrill. Jonathan leaves it all on the stage in every performance and it is with tremendous gratitude that we salute his robust career on the bittersweet occasion of his retirement.”

Peter Boal

“Rachel is one of the hardest working dancers in the Company, she is also wonderfully generous to partners and peers. How lucky we have been to enjoy her long and full career and how grateful we are for her performances which helped us to see the art form through a fresh new light.”

Peter Boal
