Veronika Part's Farewell performance, July 8th, 2017
Veronika Part gave her final ABT performance Saturday afternoon (Balanchine's Mozartiana), according to The New York Times.
A spokeswoman for Ballet Theater said the company, which does not discuss personnel matters, would not comment further. Miss Part was not available to comment last Monday.
There is but a "rumour" that similarly to Xiomara Reyes and Michelle Wiles, this is a forced retirement as her contract for next year was not renewed by Artistic Director Kevin McKenzie.
Miss Part had been with the ABT since 1996.
We would like to thank Miss Part for all the beautiful moments that she gave us on stage and wish her all the best for her future!
