About The Georgia Ballet
Founded in 1960 by Marietta native Iris Hensley, The Georgia Ballet is a non-profit organization committed to inspiring the public through professional ballet performance, unparalleled dance training and meaningful community outreach. We are continuously growing to meet the needs of the community while fulfilling our reputation as an outstanding arts organization.
I started dancing in Marietta Georgia at the age of 6. I trained with the School of the Georgia Ballet, and graduated from the school. I have attended summer programs in both Pennsylvania and Texas with The School of the Rock and the Houston Ballet. Some of my favorite roles that I have performed have been Clara, the lead student role in The Nutcracker, and corps in Carmen. I have also spent 2 seasons as a Student Trainee with The Georgia Ballet.
