Not as far as I know. My teacher only started this new studio three years ago, but she's been teaching for 29 years, in major cities in Australia (Sydney mainly) so I wouldn't be suprised if she had. I keep meaning to ask her, but I keep forgetting!

 

Have you guys had these people come back to your studio to say 'hi' I would love it if that happened to me!

Misty Copeland and Ashley Ellis, although Misty came just 2 years before graduating high school and going to ABT Studio Co. Ashley started at the studio when she was 5.

 

Also, Ilona McHugh went to my middle/high school and her and her sister (Alina Faye) took class at the studio I was at in Long Beach/Lakewood, CA.
