After her retirement, she became head of the ballet department at Skidmore College, and taught ballet at the School of Pacific Northwest Ballet in Seattle, and in New York City, where she opened her own school. From 1983 until just a month before her death, she taught at the North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston-Salem, where she stressed the importance of the Balanchine technique. She rehearsed and staged some of Balanchine’s most demanding works including Concerto Barocco, and the masterful Theme & Variations.


After appearing in over 60 ballets, mainly works by George Balanchine, Hayden retired as a dancer in 1973. Balanchine honored her on her retirement by creating the ballet “Cortege Hongrois”. At the premiere of the piece, Mayor John Lindsay presented Hayden with the city’s Handel Medallion, praising her as an “extraordinary ballerina who has filled the hearts of her audience with joy”.


In 1965, she was seen on American television as the Sugar Plum Fairy in a one-hour German-American adaptation of The Nutcracker. Filmed in 1964 and first shown in the United States by CBS just four days before Christmas 1965, the production, with a heavily altered storyline, featured an international cast of dancers and English narration by Eddie Albert. Edward Villella and Patricia McBride also starred.


Hayden appeared frequently on television, especially The Kate Smith Show and The Ed Sullivan Show. In 1952 she performed as the dance double for Claire Bloom in the film Limelight.


In the early 1940s, she moved to New York City to join the ballet corps at Radio City Music Hall. From 1945 to 1947, she was a member of the American Ballet Theatre; she joined the New York City Ballet shortly after its founding in 1948. She performed there many times with dancer Jacques d’Amboise. From 1955 until her retirement in 1973, Hayden was a principal dancer of the New York City Ballet.
