“My parents put me in everything that wasn’t a contact sport when I was little—swimming, singing, acting, gymnastics and dance. But from the age of three, ballet stuck!” says Koroly, a Trainee. “And I have been with it ever since.” She went on to train at Nan Klinger’s Excellence in Dance and attended summer intensives with The Rock School, School of American Ballet and Miami City Ballet School, all on full merit scholarships, and was asked to join Miami City Ballet School’s year-round program. Koroly then went on to Indiana University, graduating with degrees in Ballet Performance, Arts Administration and Telecommunications. “My favorite thing is to be onstage and make eye contact with the dancers around me. Whenever I make that connection with someone across from me, the performance becomes instantly great. Not only are you dancing for the audience, but you are performing as a team,” says Koroly. “I’m really looking forward to all of the outreach performances in the community,” she says of the 2014-2015 Cincinnati Ballet season. “Dance has given me so much, and I love that I can give back through it.”
Fun Fact: Koroly was a synchronized swimmer from age 5 to 18, and has coached a synchronized swim team for four summers. “It has always been my sport for fun—no pressure, just a great time!”
