Kimberly Glasco

Kimberly Glasco (born November 27, 1960 in Eugene, Oregon) is a Canadian ballerina.

In 1998, Glasco launched a wrongful dismissal suit against the National Ballet of Canada instigated because artistic director James Kudelka dropped her from the company roster, allegedly because Glasco had questioned the allocation of funds for Kudelka's version of Swan Lake. In arbitration, Kudelka was ordered to reinstate the ballerina, which he refused to do for the spring season. Company sources who spoke on condition of anonymity then claimed that Glasco turned down performances for the fall season, as the company had become a hostile environment to her. The protracted lawsuit concluded in July 2000, with an out-of-court settlement. A joint statement was issued to mitigate the bad press, and the ballerina is reported to have received damages in the neighborhood of a million Canadian dollars. Information was apparently leaked to the press by the Glasco camp, although the settlement was made privately. The National Ballet would only describe the figure as "substantial."
