ABT Soloist Joseph Gorak to Receive 2015 Leonore Annenberg Arts Fellowship.
American Ballet Theatre soloist Joseph Gorak will be awarded the 2015 Leonore Annenberg Arts Fellowship, along with several other young professional artists. The prestigious award includes recognition and a $50,000 a year stipend (for up to two years) to use toward professional development. For a dancer this might mean private coaching, college courses, physical trainers, studio space or investment in entrepreneurial or artistic interests outside of dance.
Gorak (our October/November 2013 cover star) received his well-deserved promotion to soloist in 2014 and has been noted for his pristine technique, classical elegance and line.
