Corps De Ballet
Sierra Cummings was born in Cincinnati, OH and began dancing at the age of four. Her formal ballet training began in high school at the School for Creative and Performing Arts, where she had the opportunity to perform as the Sugarplum Fairy in The Nutcracker, and Mina in Daryl Bjoza’s full-length interpretation of Dracula, both at the age of fifteen. At sixteen years old she moved away from home and began training at Sarasota Ballet, and then the Sarasota Cuban Ballet School. During her two years at SCBS she performed numerous roles, including Talisman Pas de Deux, the Sugarplum Fairy, and Medora in Le Corsaire. Her most memorable accolade was receiving the bronze medal in advanced female variations at the “23rd Competencia Internacional de Escuelas de Ballet” in Havana, Cuba. This will be Cummings’ second season as a Corps de Ballet member with Ballet San Antonio. She had the opportunity to perform many Corps de Ballet and Demi-Soloist roles this past season in The Nutcracker and Carmen.
