Maria Kochitkova left the San Francisco Ballet in 2018 to go freelance. Her career was going well; she had bookings out for many months. Then came March 2020. Everything – everything – was canceled. She and her ballet dancer partner “changed our living room into a studio space and bought a special floor and a ballet barre.
