Jennifer Grace , Demi-Soloist
Jennifer, born and raised in Bozeman, Montana, started her early training at The Dance Center.
After training at the Bolshoi Ballet Academy in Moscow, Russia, she returned to the United States and trained at Dmitri Kulev Classical Ballet Academy in Southern California for four years. In 2012, Jennifer competed in the Youth America Grand Prix in New York. She was a top 12 winner in her division out of a field of thousands from around the world who vie for a spot in that competition. Another of her outstanding achievements is that out of over 2,200 applicants from Southern California schools, she took the top prize in ballet at the annual Music Center Spotlight Awards and performed at The Kennedy Center. Her repertoire includes In The Middle Somewhat Elevated (Forsythe), A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Wheeldon), Ben Stevenson’s Cinderella, The Nutcracker (Angelini) and The Sleeping Beauty (Angelini), as well as Balanchine’s Serenade and Walpurgisnacht. She has also worked with choreographers such as Ashley Page, Adam Hougland, Young Soon Hue, Ma Cong, and Luciano Cannito. This is her third season with Tulsa Ballet.
