She also performed several pieces at ABT’s Opening Night Met Galas choreographed by Raymond Lukens, and danced multiple times on the Guggenheim Works and Process series. Lindsay performed as an apprentice to ABT’s Corps de Ballet for the 2011 and 2012 Nutcracker Seasons, dancing the parts of Snow and Flowers at The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. and at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
