It is rare to find an artist who can so easily submerge into their performances in such a graceful manner as Wendy Whelan does. With a career that contains such illustrious ballets and classical masterpieces as well as some adventurous choreography, she has made name for herself as one of the leading stars of the stage.. Born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky on in 1967; it was her destiny to become a great dancer. At the age of three, Wendy began her dance training, attending classes under a local teacher. When she was eight, she earned a part in the Louisville Ballet Academy's yearly production of the famous Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky ballet, The Nutcracker. Little did she know, that she would be featured in George Balanchine's very popular theatrical film version of this ballet.
Despite a considerable head start and a promising future ahead of her, it was not going to be an easy journey. Twelve year old Wendy Whelan learned that she was suffering from a spinal condition called scoliosis that could potentially end her dreams of becoming a ballerina. Her persistence, and the help and encouragement of her dance teachers, helped her continue intense professional training in order to follow her dream. While training in the art of ballet dancing in Louisville, she also had to wear a torso cast. This tough experience made her mentally strong; she solidified her technique and remained focused. Her hard work paid off as she received a scholarship for a summer course at the New York City Ballet's official school, the School of American Ballet. A year later, she was taken on as a full time student, and she graduated to become an apprentice at the City Ballet’s corp de ballet. Her potential was quickly noticed by Suzanne Farrell at an audition in Cincinnati. Do not miss this chance of seeing a true self-made legend in her element; buy Wendy Whelan tickets now and treat yourself to a night of breathtaking ballet.
It was not long before Ms. Whelan became a full time member of the prestigious New York City Ballet. She worked her way up the ranks, having joined the company as an apprentice. Just three years later, she got her chance to shine on stage as a soloist. Watching her perform was a treat as everything about this brilliant ballerina was witness to her years of hard work, practice, and determination. In 1991, Wendy was promoted to the position of principal dancer. This promotion got her the opportunity to work with notable choreographers such as Ulysses Dove, Albert Evans, Kevin O'Day, Christopher D'Amboise, Boris Eifman and Edwaard Liang.
