Christine Winkler is retiring after 19 wonderful seasons with Atlanta Ballet and will dance her “swan song” during a special farewell presentation immediately following the evening performance of MAYhem on Saturday, May 17. Christine has chosen one of her favorite pieces, Berceuse by choreographer Diane Coburn Bruning, which she will perform with fellow Company dancer and husband John Welker. You can also see her in both Saturday performances of Helen Pickett's The Exiled.
Company dancer Abigail Tan-Gamino is also retiring this year after four seasons with Atlanta Ballet. She is transitioning over to the Centre for Dance Education, where she will join faculty for the Student and Pre-Professional Divisions.
