Jack Sprance began training in 2010 at the Nutmeg Conservatory for the Arts. While at the school, he performed numerous roles and won a gold medal in the Connecticut Classic Competition. In 2013, Jack was accepted into the year-round trainee program at Boston Ballet, where he performed with the company in Swan Lake, Cinderella, and The Nutcracker. During the course of his training, Jack also performed roles in La Bayadere, Giselle, and Sleeping Beauty, as well as excerpts by Momix.

Jack joined Pennsylvania Ballet as a member of PBII after graduating from Boston Ballet’s trainee program. He was promoted to apprentice in 2015 and then to corps de ballet for our 2017/2018 season. Since joining the company, Jack has performed in such ballets as Angel Corella’s Don Quixote, Christopher Wheeldon’s For Four and Rush, Ben Stevenson’s Cinderella, George Balanchine’s Western Symphony, and the world premiere of Matthew Neenan’s Somnolence.
