From Huntsville, Alabama, Amy Hall Garner honed her dancing chops at New York City’s famed Julliard School. She believed she would be a dancer, not a dancemaker. It wasn’t until she mustered the courage to present a work she created for herself that the fire to create was ignited. Those flames have carried her far, and today Amy is an in-demand choreographer. From Beyonce to BalletX, Amy is carving out an impressive career as she develops her own choreographic signature. Something she admits she is still very much in the process of discovering.

For ballet lovers and knowledgeable audiences (including critics, who are nothing more than specialized spectators), attending all performances provides true enjoyment in any season of a repertory ballet with a plot performed by a big company.
There are a handful of coveted roles where dancers can spend their entire careers dreaming of being called to rehearsal – the moment when a small selection of dancers is chosen to learn various ballet roles – usually by the choreographer or a repetiteur (a person with extensive knowledge of a particular ballet).
