Famed ballerina Patricia Barker returns to Seattle
World-renowned ballerina Patricia Barker, a Pacific Northwest Ballet principal dancer for 20 years, is now making her mark offstage, just as she did onstage. She has used her PNB experience, both as a dancer and as an instructor, to reinvigorate a Michigan ballet company. Next week, she will bring her troupe to Seattle for performances that reflect her roots and her ambitions to contribute to ballet’s future.
