Vivien trained for 12 years under the direction of Alex and Kirsten Nagiba of Vermont Ballet Theatre. At 17, after attending Miami City Ballet’s summer intensive, she was invited to attend the year round pre-professional division, performing various roles in such ballets as George Balanchine’s Serenade and Marius Petipa’s The Sleeping Beauty. The following year she furthered her training at Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet under the direction of Marcia Dale Weary. Last season Vivien was featured as Fritz and in the Chinese dance in The Nutcracker. This is Vivien’s second season as a Eugene Ballet Academy Aspirant in training with EBC.
