    Senior Apprentice

    Hailing from Stillwater, Minnesota, Will began his dance career at the St Croix Ballet, under the direction of Karla Sweeney and Susan Hovey. He has performed leading roles in The Nutcracker, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty. Because of the opportunity to choreograph scenes including the Prince, Will’s favorite performance has been Cinderella. A highlight has been dancing with Twin Cities Ballet in its original ballet Narnia, under the direction of Denise Vogt. Past training experience has included Milwaukee Ballet Intensives under Rolando Yanes, Academy of Russian Ballet under Kirill Bak, and Twin Cities Ballet under Denise Vogt. Will is excited to continue his training as an apprentice with the Minnesota Ballet.
