Citing "artistic and professional reasons," Ballet Pacifica artistic director Molly Lynch has resigned from the Irvine-based company she has led since 1988. "It was an extremely difficult decision to make, but I felt it was the only reasonable alternative at this point," Lynch said Wednesday. "I'm trying to focus on the positive and all we did over the last 15 years and figure out what I'm going to do next." Lynch would not elaborate on her decision.
