As DDP’s Global Conversations turns from the creative process and women choreographers to the visionaries leading companies through crisis, we present our final installment in the first series, The Creative Process. In our final episode of part 1, Liza chats with her friend Victoria Morgan.

Victoria has managed to choreograph countless works while serving as one of the US’ longest-standing women artistic directors (25 years in 2021-2022!!!) and for a time as CEO, too. Victoria weighs in on what it takes to be an effective leader, both artistically and administratively, in this episode that bridges the creative process with leading well through any circumstances.

Victoria Morgan has been a leader of Cincinnati Ballet as the Artistic Director and CEO (formerly) since 1997 where she has led the company to tremendous growth and success. She has created numerous ballets, both one-act and evening length and maintains a high standard for her dancers in whom she values a strong work ethic. Prior to joining the Cincinnati Ballet, Morgan was resident choreographer for the San Francisco Opera and a principal dancer for San Francisco Ballet and Ballet West in Salt Lake City, which is where she got her start. Morgan graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Masters of Fine Arts from the University of Utah. Today, she is committed to highlighting female choreographers and continuing to lead her company through unprecedented times.
