Genevieve is a 13-year-old 8th-grade honors student in Rowland Unified. She began her ballet training at age 2 with local recreation programs. When she was 4, she attended her first production of Inland Pacific Ballet’s The Nutcracker and, with aspirations to be cast as a bonbon, began her training with Inland Pacific Ballet Academy in January 2015. With Inland Pacific Ballet Academy, she has performed in the following spring recitals: Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Coppelia, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Swan Lake, The Little Mermaid, and The Lion King. She has performed eight seasons of IPB’s The Nutcracker. Genevieve placed in the Top 6 for large ensemble contemporary at the Youth America Grand Prix Los Angeles in January 2022. She trained in summer intensives at Chicago’s Joffrey Ballet Academy in 2022 and Seattle’s Pacific Northwest Ballet School in 2023. Genevieve is grateful for the opportunity to serve as an IPB Academy Trainee. Her fondest ballet moment was sharing the Nutcracker stage last season with her role model, Mira Nadon, an IPBA alum and Principal Dancer at New York City Ballet. When she’s not dancing, Genevieve loves to read big books, bake, cook, travel, serve as a Girl Scout, and play piano and violin.
