Melanie Hamrick

Melanie Hamrick (born July 17, 1987) is an American choreographer, author, producer, and former ballerina at the American Ballet Theatre, from which she retired in 2019 after fifteen years. In 2014, she began a relationship with Mick Jagger, with whom she has one child, born in 2016. Hamrick was born in Williamsburg, Virginia and attended the Kirov Academy of Ballet.

Hamrick choreographed a 2019 ballet named Porte Rogue, which was soundtracked to songs by the Rolling Stones and composed in collaboration with Jagger.

In 2023, her debut novel, ''First Position'', was published by Penguin Random House. The romance novel, though not autobiographical in nature, is "loosely based on some truths backstage" during Hamrick's time as a ballerina. The novel's title is a pun based on the first position in ballet. In writing ''First Position'', Hamrick took inspiration from her life experience as a ballerina, the novel ''Fifty Shades of Grey'', and the 2010 psychological horror film Black Swan. She announced in March 2024 that her second novel, ''The Unraveling'', would be released that August. Provided by Wikipedia
