Join Us for an Exclusive Conversation With NYCB’s Mira Nadon on August 30!

August 23, 2021

Mira Nadon is only 20, but she has quickly become one of New York City Ballet’s most exciting up-and-coming dancers. Quiet and unassuming in the studio, the NYCB corps member boldly comes to life onstage. She’s taken on leading roles in ballets by George Balanchine, Justin Peck and Sidra Bell, and recently made her debut at the Vail Dance Festival. “She approaches her soloist and principal roles with a cool confidence,” says NYCB artistic director Jonathan Stafford in our July/August digital cover story. “She’s got a demeanor that doesn’t show the frantic energy that comes with doing a big debut. It lends itself well to the pressure cooker of being in Lincoln Center on that big stage.”

Mira Nadon stands on her right leg on pointe and does a développé ecarté with her left. A group of male dancers cluster around her, with one man on his knees holding her ankle and three others standing and holding her wrists and left foot. Three female dances stand in the background onstage. All the women wear short, sparkly red dance dresses while the men wear red jackets and white tights.
