Isabella Boylston, principal
A native of Sun Valley, Idaho, Isabella began her training as a twelve-year-old at the Academy of Colorado Ballet, and in 2003 she entered the prestigious Harid Conservatory in Boca Raton, Florida. In 2007, Boylston was accepted to the ABT Studio Company. Her career at ABT has been marked by rapid ascension: she joined the Main Company in 2007, was promoted to Soloist in 2011, and was promoted to Principal in 2014. She has performed several leading roles during the past two years, including the Ballerina in Alexei Ratmansky’s The Bright Stream, Odette/Odile in Swan Lake, Kitri in Don Quixote, and the Firebird in the premiere of Mr. Ratmansky’s all-new Firebird. Isabella has achieved additional recognition with the Gold Medal in Youth America Grand Prix (2001), Reuger Award (2005), Princess Grace Award (2009), Benois De La Danse Nomination (2010) and Clive Barnes Award (2011). Andrew Blackmore-Dobbn, writing for Huffington Post Arts & Culture, extols her as the “the current odds on favorite to be the next Great American Ballerina.” She created the role of Diamon Fairy in The Sleeping Beauty and had leading roles in Citizens, Chamber Symphony and Dumbarton, Private Lights, and Diversions.  In summer 2017, she will curate her own show, Ballet Sun Valley, in her hometown of Sun Valley, Idaho.  Click here for more information on Isabella Boylston.
