Sasha has been studying with the Atlanta Ballet Centre for Dance Education for two years. She is graduating from Academy V.

“My time at Atlanta Ballet has positively challenged my performance quality and expectations of myself as an artist. The training has strengthened my ballet, modern, and contemporary techniques significantly while also pushing me to interpret the art form on an advanced level. I'm proud to have been able to form my own artistic voice at the school while using a grounded technique to help it flourish. Atlanta Ballet has pushed me towards a future filled with dance at the professional level and I have enjoyed every moment of it along the way.”

“I've had a plethora of memorable experiences at the Centre for Dance Education; but by far, my favorite moment was being able to perform George Balanchine's Serenade at the 2019 Spring Concert. I enjoyed every moment of the rehearsals with Robert Barnett and the stage time with my classmates.”

“My next journey leads me to the New York University Tisch School of the Arts to major in dance. After getting my bachelor's degree, I plan on joining a contemporary ballet company and later working as a resident choreographer.”
