Kelsie Van Horn, University of Utah Ballet Major

AZYB 2010-2016

I danced with Arizona Youth Ballet from 2010 to 2016 and absolutely loved my experience. The dance studio had a family environment where I made lifelong friendships. The training was exceptional and focused on improving both a dancers’ technical and artistic ability which was provided through classes, rehearsals, and performance opportunities. Additionally, the company is very focused on injury prevention and putting healing above all else. Due to the opportunities provided with Arizona Youth Ballet, I was able to pursue my journey as a ballet major at the University of Utah. I am eternally grateful for having such amazing mentorship and training growing up, because without it I would not have been able to follow my dreams.
