Ava began her dance training at the age of ten in Seattle, Washington at Evergreen City Ballet. In 2014 Ava was accepted into the School of Ballet Arizona, where she spent two years in Ballet Arizona’s Studio Company. Ava was then hired by Ballet Arizona’s professional company in 2016 where she had the opportunity to perform in many critically acclaimed ballets such as George Balanchine’s Square Dance and Western Symphony, and the U.S premier of the classic August Bournonville ballet, Napoli. Additionally, she performed in world premieres by choreographers such as Ib Andersen and Nayon Iovino. In 2018 Ava joined NWA Ballet Theatre as a principal dancer. During her time with NWA she excelled in her talents and performed in many classical ballets and developed a deep love for neoclassical ballets.
This is Ava's first season with Paradosi and she is so excited to grow and learn within the ministry. Dance has been a form of praise, worship, and expression for Ava since she first started ballet as a child. She is looking forward to using art, not only in worship but as a way to share the forgiving love and redemption that comes through Jesus Christ!
