Savannah has been dancing since she was four, but discovered her love for ballet at age seven when she began training at the Long Beach Ballet Academy under the direction of David Wilcox. There, she danced the roles of Clara and the Snow Queen in The Nutcracker and the Black Swan in Swan Lake. With Shani Englert’s coaching, she competed in the Youth America Grand Prix, placing in the top 12, and then traveled to New York City for the finals. Her summer intensive trainings include American Ballet Theatre, Boston Ballet School, Joffrey Ballet in Chicago, Houston Ballet and Ballet West. Savannah was also one of 99 dancers chosen to compete and represent the U.S. at the 2014 USA International Ballet Competition in Jackson, Mississippi. This is Savannah’s second season as a Eugene Ballet Academy Aspirant in training with EBC.
