"I went to a summer program before high school for modeling, acting and hip hop, and one of the hip hop teachers said I should take ballet, and the next year I was in class," says De-Poli, a Trainee. He attended the Alexander W. Drefoos School of the Arts and is currently a senior studying ballet performance at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. De-Poli's favorite dancer is Fabrice Calwels, "because he's so tall, like I am, and he's such an amazing dancer", and his favorite ballet is Giselle: "it was the first full-length ballet I'd ever done, and having that experience was awesome". De-Poli would love to perform in La petite mort one day, and is most looking forward to the new repertoire he will learn, especially Mozart's Requiem, during the 2014-2015 Season with Cincinnati Ballet.
