She began when she was 8 years old studying with the academy all the way through her high school graduation in 2015, during which time she had the opportunity to dance with the company. She first performed in Peter Anastos’ production of The Nutcracker, where she danced several roles beginning with Party Girl, followed by company roles in Chinese and Flowers. Other roles included being part of the corps de ballet in Swan Lake and an understudy in Balanchine’s Serenade and Rubies. While with Ballet Idaho, Morgan studied classical ballet, contemporary, modern, and jazz. She has attended the Jillana School summer intensive and Joffrey Ballet’s summer intensive in San Francisco. When she graduated high school in 2015 she directed her studies to business and marketing with Boise State University and College of Western Idaho. In the 2016/17 season while attending school, she began teaching in Ballet Idaho’s Preparatory Division as well as their outreach program, Learning Through Dance. Morgan is excited to once again teach classes in the academy this season and share all she has learned with her students.
