DANCER FARRELL TO RETIRE IN 1987

Suzanne Farrell, a principal dancer with New York City Ballet since 1965, has announced her intention to retire from dancing at the end of the winter season.

Although Farrell's decision was prompted by a recurring hip injury--which forced the ballerina to cancel her recent scheduled performances at the Orange County Music Center--she said in New York Monday that she expects to dance a number of roles in the NYCB Lincoln Center season, Nov. 18-Feb. 22.

Farrell, 41, began studying dance in her native Cincinnati. She was one of the first students chosen to receive a Ford Foundation scholarship to study at the School of American Ballet.
