Sarah Bradley

CBII | Cincinnati, OH | Joined Cincinnati Ballet in 2014

“I started dancing when I was three,” says Bradley, Trainee. She has trained with Cincinnati Ballet Otto M. Budig Academy for 13 years and taken summer intensives at Tulsa Ballet, Joffrey Ballet and Cincinnati Ballet. Bradley’s favorite dance memory is “the first time I danced outside of a kids’ cast role in a company production, which was in Waltz of the Flowers fromFrisch’s Presents The Nutcracker.” Bradley enjoyed dancing in LUMENOCITY 2014, and looks forward to learning as much as possible during the 2017-2018 Season with Cincinnati Ballet.

Fun Fact: Sarah enjoys drawing and painting.

Touchet will never forget her 19th birthday. That was the day Victoria Morgan came to Pacific Northwest Ballet, to audition Touchet’s professional division. “Directors from everywhere auditioned us, but nobody ever picked me,” she says. “I remember thinking she wouldn’t like me anyway, so I told myself to just have fun, and after it was over, she said, ‘I’d like to talk to Janessa’.” Crossed wires with communicating Touchet’s acceptance of Morgan’s apprenticeship offer led to a planned spot with Memphis Ballet, but Morgan called one last time and Touchet was able to come to Cincinnati Ballet instead. “It was meant to be here. I started as an Apprentice and moved all the way through the ranks. I had always had my heart and mind set on Cincinnati Ballet.”
