A classic beauty, Jenifer glows with warmth and humanity on stage. In person she’s sweet, kind, real.
On Her Toes
Inspired by the lush music of Tschaikovsky and the elegant choreography of her boss, New York City Ballet master in chief Peter Martins, Jenifer wows the crowd as Aurora in The Sleeping Beauty.
All smiles, Jenifer relaxes with daughter Grace and husband James Fayette. James was once her onstage partner at New York City Ballet and now is a union representative for dancers. They were gorgeous together, and still are!
Vision of Spring
Jenifer is light and breezy in the Spring section of The Four Seasons, with music by Giuseppi Verdi and choreography by the great Jerome Robbins.
The versatile dancer is comfortable in both classical and modern ballet. Here, she rehearses with choreographer Alexei Ratmansky, former director of the Bolshoi Ballet, for one of his recent works, Namouna: A Grand Divertissement.
Jenifer sparkles in the high-energy ballet Who Cares? which features the work of two cultural icons: songs by George Gershwin and choreography by New York City Ballet co-founder George Balanchine.
It’s every little girls dream: to dance in The Nutcracker. For Jenifer Ringer, the dream came true—big time. She is often featured as the Sugar Plum Fairy in the timeless Tschaikovsky/Balanchine ballet, which is performed every winter at New York City Ballet.
Among the many classic ballets Jenifer has been tapped for is Swan Lake. She had resisted portraying the famous role of Odette/Odile for years, but she finally donned the feathers—and soared!
A dissonant score by Leonid Desyatnikov and mesmerizing choreography by Alexei Ratmansky provide Jenifer with another role in a modern ballet, Russian Seasons.
