She later spent two years with Carter Alexander and Geta Constantinescu at the Miami City Ballet School, where she performed in George Balanchine’s Serenade and August Bournonville’s Pas de la Vestale. She then continued her training as part of the inaugural class of the newly rekindled School of Pennsylvania Ballet (after years partnered with the Rock School) under the direction of William DeGregory and Arantxa Ochoa. In addition, Marjorie attended summer intensives at Miami City Ballet School, Exploring Ballet with Suzanne Farrell, Ellison Ballet, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, and the School of American Ballet. She was also a student apprentice under full scholarship at the Chautauqua Institution in Chautauqua, NY.
Marjorie joined Pennsylvania Ballet as a member of PBII in 2013. She was later promoted to apprentice and then to corps de ballet for the 2016/2017 season. Marjorie has performed in numerous ballets, including Christopher Wheeldon’s Swan Lake and Jerome Robbins’ The Concert, and has joined the company on tours to Canada, the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and the 2014 Vail International Dance Festival in Vail, Colorado.
