"I went to a summer program before high school for modeling, acting and hip hop. One of the hip hop teachers said I should take ballet, and the next year I was in class," says De-Poli. 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 during the 1516 Season with Cincinnati Ballet.
