Is it just a funny coincidence that so many dancers have dogs? I was beginning to think so and had to check it out for myself. I had been introduced to the magnificent dancers of The America Ballet by vet extraordinaire, Jennifer Chaitman. I truly had no idea of the grace and ease that these dogs add to a dance routine!  

Here are some of the things their owners say about them:

“Riley is such a cuddle bug! He just wants to be on someone’s lap all the time. It’s great to have him in the studio because whenever my colleagues or I sit down we have our own personal leg heater!” -Devon Teuscher

“I love bringing Pickles to the studios. She lightens the mood for everyone. All the dancers enjoy playing with her and she loves watching them move.” -Lauren Post

“Bringing Hudson and Savannah to work are two totally different experiences. Hudson is all about everyone else and Savannah is all about me! They both love coming and the dancers love getting a lighthearted break from their rigorous day… it’s a win-win!” -Sarah Smith

The spring season at the Metropolitan Opera House starts in early May and continues for 8 weeks.
