Company dancer featured in Pointe Magazine

By December 22, 2020January 6th, 2021No Comments

Company member Antonio Morillo was interviewed by Pointe Magazine about his path to pursuing a dance career. He initially started college studying vocal performance at Seminole State College and then musical theater at Point Park University. There, a pivotal class taught by a former Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre dancer helped him realize that he wanted to shift his focus to ballet. During his senior year at the University of South Florida, he was offered a contract with Verb Ballets in 2017 and finished his degree remotely. Antonio has also choreographed for the company and is a teacher in our community program. We are so pleased that his hard work has been recognized.
