A New York City Ballet soloist has claimed in a new memoir that a director once told her it was 'amazing more women aren't raped' and that a principal dancer used to tweak her nipples when he greeted her in class.

Georgina Pazcoguin, 36, made the series of allegations about the company's fellow dancers and directors in her new memoir 'Swan Dive: The Making of a Rogue Ballerina'.

At one point in her memoir, Pazcoguin accused repertory director Jean-Pierre Frohlich of dropping a 'crazy bomb' while they were rehearsing for Jerome Robbins' The Concert, the New York Times reports.  

She said that Frohlich told the dancers to imagine spring and how women walk 'around in tank tops and short dresses, shorts.'

Pazcoguin claims Frohlich then said: 'It's amazing more women aren't raped these days.' 

Frohlich would not comment on the allegation.
