“It’s not just the promise of a starring role and spotlight dance that draws Campagna to performing, but also, as he puts it, the chance to ‘act, be active, and tell stories.'”
“I think, for us especially, it is a highlight in our career–for all of us. So for me to have that opportunity to go was absolutely a dream come true. In fact, I cried on stage; it was so awesome.”
After four years in the program, Jack has earned a spot in this season’s performance of The Nutcracker. He is the first child with Down syndrome to perform on stage with the Cincinnati Ballet.
