Orlando Ballet (Website) and its Board of Directors have just announced the naming of Jorden Morris as the new Artistic Director.
Morris, the former Choreographer-in-Residence, was appointed as the Guest Artistic Director for the 2021-22 Season following the departure of longtime AD, Robert Hill, this past summer. Morris comes to the role with career highlights that include dancing with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet for 11 years, stints with the Boston Ballet, Edmonton Citie Ballet, and The School of Royal Winnipeg Ballet.
Over the past four decades I have performed, created, taught, and learned from a wealth of artists and organizations across the globe – I am incredibly excited to share my artistic experience, knowledge, and love for dance with Orlando. Working with Orlando Ballet over the past year has been a rich and rewarding experience. As the new artistic director, I look forward to the cultivation and development of the artists, students, and repertoire of this outstanding organization,” Morris said in a prepared statement.
