David Hallberg takes a hiatus for ankle surgery

By Gia Kourlas

David Hallberg, who dances with both American Ballet Theatre and the Bolshoi Ballet, will take a brief hiatus to undergo surgery on his left foot—that means, sadly, no David Hallberg for ABT's fall season. "It is with great regret that I have to step off the stage for this period of recovery," he says in a statement. "But as an artist that relies on his body as his instrument, my main priority is to dance in full health and take the time needed to perform at that level again." On the bright side, Hallberg will be recuperating in New York; he may not be onstage, but at least we'll be able to catch a glimpse or two of this avid art-goer in audiences throughout the fall. A safe bet? Xavier Le Roy's "Retrospective" at MoMA PS1.
