Focused, serious, and persistent is how Isabelle would describe herself. While these attributes naturally flow through her every movement, they were perfectly refined by the art of ballet. Who is to say if ballet brought out the determination in Isabelle or if her determination led her to become a ballerina. Dancing has put her on some of the most well known stages in the country, but it is the simplicity, the grace, and the pressure from within that captivates her heart and encourages her to pursue even more.
“What if I fall?
Oh, but my darling,
what if you fly?”
Productions, Performances, and Competitions
Isabelle spends 20-25 hours per week training, practicing, and perfecting her technique. Outside of the studio she also uses dance as a way to give back to her community; performing at retirement communities for the elderly and free Nutcracker community shows, created to help expose young children with limited resources to Ballet.
