Two male principal dancers were fired by the New York City Ballet Saturday morning after they were cited in a lawsuit for allegedly trading explicit photos of female ballerinas.
Zachary Catazaro, 29, and Amar Ramasar, 36, were both booted from the company for good after being suspended Aug. 27 for “inappropriate communications,” officials confirmed.
The article goes on to state the following:
The move is in response to an explosive suit filed on Sept. 5 by student-dancer Alexandra Waterbury, 20, against the company — which she called a “breeding ground for sexual exploitation” — and her ex-boyfriend, dancer Chase Finlay, 28.
She alleges her former flame kick-started the X-rated photo exchanges between Catazaro and Ramasar when he wrote, “You have any pictures of girls you’ve f–ked? I’ll send you some [hot] ballerina girls I’ve made scream,” to a group of men in the company.
Finlay — who resigned from NYCB last month — then sent some men in the group, including Ramasar, photos and video clips of their sexual encounters that he’d secretly recorded, the Manhattan Supreme Court suit states.
