One of the most acclaimed ballet choreographers in the world, Alexei Ratmansky, is stepping down from his perch at American Ballet Theatre.
The company has announced he’ll be leaving after his contract expires in June of next year.
The company hailed his many contributions as an artist in residence over 13 years but said it did not have word on what Ratmansky might do next.
The 54-year old choreographer was born in Russia, grew up in Kyiv and recently choreographed a tribute to Ukraine for Pacific Northwest Ballet.
