 “I started dancing when I was in the first grade,” says Justin Hughes, CBII.      “My mother was a dancer and put all of her children into ballet.” Hughes became hooked. From Claremont, California, 26-year-old Hughes trained with the School of Oregon Ballet Theatre, Pennsylvania Ballet and Inland Pacific Ballet Academy. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in Physics with a minor in Math from Principia College. Hughes’ favorite ballet is Giselle, and his favorite role is Basilio in Don Quixote. If Hughes could dance any role regardless of gender, he would dance the role of the Dying Swan from Swan Lake. He is looking forward to making new friends at Cincinnati Ballet during the 2013-2014 50th Anniversary Season.
Fun Fact: Justin’s favorite movie is Star Wars.
