Meagan Helman leaves her graceful mark on Ballet Theatre of Maryland
"My memories from this year’s Nutcracker will be bittersweet forever, because Principal Dancer and Ballet Mistress, Meagan Helman retires on the last performance, December 21st. Meagan has been with me creating the vision of BTM for 11 of my 12 years and has graced the stage with beauty, sensitivity, magic, and love through her every role. She has also brought beauty to BTM behind the scenes through her art work on our sets. Onstage, she will always be amongst my favorite Dewdrops in The Nutcracker, and she has been the muse for me as a choreographer in creating such poignant roles as Beauty in Beauty in the Beast, Princess Samira in Aladdin, and Jo in Little Women, or Crimson Kate in Pirates of the Chesapeake.
The photos in this BTM Facebook Gallery were selected by Meagan as some of her Nutcracker favorites from many seasons.
