Principal Dancer Lorena Feijóo to Retire Following 2017 Season

The Company announced today that Principal Dancer Lorena Feijóo will retire from SF Ballet, following the 2017 Season. A Farewell Performance celebrating her tenure will be announced later during the season.

“Lorena has always been a very versatile and singular dancer,” said Artistic Director & Principal Choreographer Helgi Tomasson. “In addition to her strength and beautiful technique, she is always the dancer who has an extra dose of passion and spirit—and that intensity draws your eye to her whenever she’s on stage. She has had a wonderful international career as a dancer and I’m glad she’s spent the last 17 years with us, performing a wide range of works—not only the classics, but more contemporary ballets by some of the most exciting choreographers working today. We will miss Lorena and wish her all the best.”
