STATEMENT FROM AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE
American Ballet Theatre sadly notes the passing of cherished Company dancer Jennifer Alexander. Alexander suffered fatal injuries on December 2 as a result of a car collision in New Jersey. Alexander, along with two other ABT dancers, Alexander’s husband Julio Bragado-Young and Nicole Graniero, as well as a dancer from the Martha Graham School, were returning from an appearance of The Nutcracker in Pennsylvania.
“It is with unbearable sadness that I, on behalf of the dancers, staff and Board of Governing Trustees, express our deepest sympathies to the Alexander and Bragado-Young families,” said Artistic Director Kevin McKenzie.
