Yes, it is CPB. I am sorry for not identifying the school

 

I also neglected to add Michael Owen, Director of Walnut Hill Dance Department and Summer Program, former principal dancer at ABT.

 

A really cool thing for the kids is when they wear a costume for a show and recognize one of the alum's names in the costume!

Yes, I would assume it is CPYB

Balletstar811, those dancers come from my studio, so I guess we go to the same studio!

I don't know if any professional dancers came from my ballet school but I've danced with Emma Lister(English National Ballet) and Julianne Rice-oxley(Irish ballet) and Janet Lewis(RB Principal).

David Hallberg and Anthony Spaulding from SBAZ. :) They studdied here when Kee-Juan Hann and Nadya Zubkov were running the school. Since then I've followed Nadya and don't get to see them when they come back to Arizona.
