Zhong-Jing Fang | Featued Performer

I can barely contain myself! For our upcoming service in NYC – the theme is SOLITUDE, Feb. 22nd – we have a ballerina from the American Ballet Theater coming to perform for us. Zhong-Jing Fang is someone I’ve been acquainted with for a few years and the timing finally worked out to have her come be a part of The Secret City. I think she’s going to dance The Dying Swan – I might faint. Here’s her bio:

Born in Shanghai, China, Zhong-Jing Fang received her early training at the Shanghai Ballet School where she trained for seven years. Before joining ABT’s Studio Company in 2002, Fang graduated with a major in ballet from the Performing Arts College of Shanghai Drama University.

In 2000, Fang was the winner of the famed Prix de Lausanne, and winner of the Rudolf Nureyev Foundation Prize at the Ninth International Ballet Competition in Paris. In June 2001, Fang won First Prize in the Junior Division of the Helsinki International Ballet Competition. Most recently, she won first place in the Junior Division of the Shanghai International Ballet Competition.

In April 2003, Fang joined the main Company as an apprentice and, in January 2004, became a member of the corps de ballet. Her roles with the Company include Aya in La Bayadère, Twig in Cinderella, Prayer in Coppélia, Zulma in Giselle, Nanny and the Sugar Plum Fairy in Alexei Ratmansky’s The Nutcracker, Rosaline’s Friend in Romeo and Juliet, the Fairy of Joy in The Sleeping Beauty, the Hungarian Princess and Lead Czardas in Swan Lake, the Prelude in Les Sylphides, Ceres inSylvia and roles in Black Tuesday, Continuo, Kaleidoscope, Sinfonietta and Symphonic Variations. She created a leading role in Pretty Good Year.
