This Connecticut-born, 6'1" blonde is a New Yorker at heart, receiving much of his training at the prestigious Ballet Academy East on the UES. Now, crosstown at Lincoln Center, the New York City Ballet soloist has been catching the eye of dance critics and wide-eyed teenage girls alike. At just 21, he has landed leading roles in much of the company's repertory, including Lysander in Balanchine's A Midsummer Night's Dream
and Romeo in Romeo and Juliet
This winter, expect to see Finlay dancing with NYCB in Swan Lake
and The Sleeping Beauty
