Chattanooga Times Free Press - - NEWS - WIRE RE­PORTS

NEW YORK — Two dancers were fired from the New York City Bal­let on Satur­day amid ac­cu­sa­tions they were part of a ring of male dancers who in­ap­pro­pri­ately shared nude photos and videos of women.

The bal­let com­pany said prin­ci­pal dancers Amar Ra­masar and Zachary Catarazo, as well as a third dancer, Chase Fin­lay, who re­signed last month, “en­gaged in in­ap­pro­pri­ate com­mu­ni­ca­tions, that while per­sonal, off-hours and off-site, had vi­o­lated the norms of con­duct that NYCB ex­pects from its em­ploy­ees.”

The fir­ings came af­ter a woman who had dated Fin­ley, Alexan­dra Water­bury, said in a law­suit this month that Fin­lay had sent ex­plicit videos and photos of her taken with­out her knowl­edge to other men in­clud­ing dancers with the com­pany.
