Jason has been studying with the Atlanta Ballet Centre for Dance Education Academy since January, 2020. He is graduating from Academy V.

“My experience at the ballet has been nothing but great. Within the first week I was put into rehearsals for their upcoming performance, The Swan Princess. Within a month of starting training here, I was performing on stage with [Atlanta Ballet 2] as one of the prince’s friends.

“When I arrived, I was instantly welcomed with open arms. Even though I haven’t been here very long, Atlanta Ballet has become my second family. I was pleased to see how positive the environment is in the studios. "I would say that one of my favorite memories of being here was getting the chance to constantly rehearse with [Atlanta Ballet 2] members. That is one of the great parts of being an Academy student at Atlanta Ballet. The students are given performance opportunities in [Atlanta Ballet 2] productions and even some of the main Company productions.

"My next journey is starting right here in Atlanta. I was offered a position with Atlanta Ballet 2 for next season and was very eager to accept!"
