Meet Elizabeth

Hometown: Lexington, KY
Elizabeth Wallace received her early training at the Lexington Ballet School, Kentucky Ballet Theater, and Cincinnati Ballet before attending the School of American Ballet (on scholarship), where she was awarded the Mae L. Wien Award for Outstanding Promise in 2010. She also attended summer intensives at Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, the School of American Ballet, and Chautauqua Ballet (as both a festival dancer and an apprentice), all on full scholarships. In 2006, Elizabeth was awarded a scholarship to the American Ballet Theatre Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School and was also a Youth America Grand Prix junior division finalist.

Elizabeth joined Pennsylvania Ballet as an apprentice for our 2012/2013 season and was promoted to the corps de ballet for the 2013/2014 season. She has performed featured roles with the company in several ballets, including Christopher Wheeldon’s Liturgy, DGV: Danse à Grande Vitesse, and Swan Lake, Wayne McGregor’s Chroma, Nacho Duato’s Without Words, Angel Corella’s Don Quixote and Le Corsaire, Ben Stevenson’s Cinderella, and George Balanchine’s The Four Temperaments.

Prior to Pennsylvania Ballet, Elizabeth danced with New York City Ballet, where she performed the works of George Balanchine, Peter Martins, and Jerome Robbins. She also performed in works by Yuri Smekalov of Mariinsky Theatre and Joshua Beamish of Moves Company as part of the New York Choreographic Institute.

Elizabeth was featured in Pointe Magazine’s “Stars of the Corps” in August 2015, as well as Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch” in December 2016.
