"So You Think You Can Dance" Season 12


“During my last year at BalletCNJ, the teachers helped me prepare an audition video to take the next step in becoming a professional ballet dancer. Because of them, I am now dancing for American Contemporary Ballet in Los Angeles where I get to do a lot of soloist roles and partnering work. I don’t think any of this would have been possible if it weren’t for them.”

-Michelle D’Angelis (BalletCNJ Alumni)
