Corps De Ballet
Alexander Allen began his dance training in Chicago at the age of fifteen when he entered Chicago High School for the Arts. One would never guess his late start in dance by looking at his extraordinary abilities. He captured the attention of Dan Duell and Patricia Blair, directors for Ballet Chicago and at 16 began training at their facility.
Allen performed with Ballet Chicago in Balanchine’s version of The Nutcracker. In 2014, he performed roles as a member of the Corps de Ballet in Dan Duel’s Ellington Suite. In 2015, Allen toured with the Blue Lake International Ballet Ensemble under the direction of Cory Goei and Ricardo Garcia. He performed contemporary works by Matt Farmer, Ricardo Garcia and many others. His travels included performances in Germany, Czech Republic, France, and Belgium.
