Michaela Rae Mann began her dance training in her home town of Lakewood, New Jersey. She continued her studies for several years at the School of American Ballet in their children’s, intermediate and advanced divisions. During summers, she trained at San Francisco Ballet School, Miami City Ballet School, Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, The Rock School, and others along the east coast.
Following her graduation from SAB, she trained at Miami City Ballet School where she toured with Miami City Ballet performing Balanchine works. Since, she has found joy performing and teaching pre-professional ballet classes leading her to continue her studies through completion of her Bachelors of Arts degree at Georgian Court University and her Masters of Fine Arts degree at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, both in Dance.

She has since danced and performed all around the country, highlights including Satellite Collective (BAM), the Ashley Bouder Project, work on Justin Peck’s recent revival of Carousel on Broadway, and joined Twyla Tharp for her 50th anniversary tour. Ms. Mann has been a professor at several universities on the east coast and has been teaching professionally for over 10 years. She is thrilled to join the MCB family.
