Darleen Callaghan - School Director
Ms. Callaghan became a principal dancer with the North Carolina Dance Theatre performing a variety of roles in both classical and contemporary works. She joined the company for two European tours, performances at the Spoleto Festivals in America and Italy, and extensive yearly tours throughout the United States.
Upon retiring from the stage, Ms. Callaghan honed her skills as a teacher, choreographer and arts administrator. She was invited by Jean-Pierre Bonnefoux and Patricia McBride to direct the North Carolina Dance Theatre School of Dance under their artistic leadership. She successfully built the School into a nationally-recognized professional training ground for students from around the United States, Europe, Japan and South America.
Ms. Callaghan is so pleased to accept the position of Director of the Miami City Ballet School and looks forward to working closely with Artistic Director, Lourdes Lopez, to realize their common goals for the School. It is with great anticipation and sincere gratitude that Ms. Callaghan begins this next chapter in her dance career.
