"I started dancing in high school because the choreographer of a musical I was in told me I should take a class," says McCleery, a Trainee. McCleery went on to train with and dance at Cangelosi Dance Project, Ballet Chicago and Charlotte Ballet (formerly North Carolina Dance Theatre). His favorite ballet he's danced in thus far in his career is Serenade, because of its "intricate movements and music", and he would love to perform in Giselle one day, as it's one of his favorite classical ballets. During the 2014-2015 Season with Cincinnati Ballet, McCleery is most looking forward to dancing in Ballet Toybox, the spring showcase for all CBII dancers.
