We are delighted to announce that Isabella Kagele, 15, a longtime student who attends Tiffany’s Dance Academy in Livermore, has been accepted to the Joffrey Ballet School in New York City. The Joffrey Ballet accepts only the best dancers from around the country after a vigorous national audition to join their elite ranks.
This is an incredible honor, not only for Isabella, but for the entire local dance community. We are elated to have played a role in shaping Isabella into becoming the beautiful, versatile and extremely talented dancer that she’s become and we couldn’t be more honored to have her represent Tiffany’s Dance Academy (Livermore) as she makes her way to New York to join the elite ranks of dancers from around the country.
The Joffrey Ballet School was founded in 1953 and seeks to transform passionate dance students into versatile, individualistic artists able to collaborate and evolve fluidly in a fast-changing society. It has strived to remain on the forefront of American dance education. Graduates of the School have gone on to dance for major classical ballet companies, as well as for numerous modern and contemporary companies, both in the United States and abroad.Isabella has been attending Tiffany’s Dance Academy in Livermore since 2001, when she was just 3 years old. We asked Isabella about this achievement and her response is truly touching: “I’m super excited about what the future holds, but I’m sad to be leaving Tiffany’s Dance Academy. It’s been a great place for me to learn and make good friends and I couldn’t have made it to Joffrey without your help and support. I’m truly grateful for all that I’ve learned and I’m proud to represent Tiffany’s in this next chapter of my life.”
Isabella is a wonderful student and tremendous talent. She will go far, and we’re proud of her. We at Tiffany’s Dance Academy wish her the very best in this next chapter!
