“I watched the movie An American in Paris and wanted to dance like Gene Kelly,” says Daniel Wagner, a CBII. Originally from Monrovia,  California, 20-year-old Wagner trained at the University of North  Carolina School of the Arts and The Houston Ballet Ben Stevenson  Academy. Wagner admires dancer Leonide Saratanov, and Le Corsaire is his favorite ballet. If he could dance any ballet role ever, Wagner would choose the lead male in Le Jeunne Homme et La Mort. A Trainee during the 2013-2014 Season at Cincinnati Ballet, Wagner says he is "looking forward to dancing even more, meeting new people and experiencing  new choreography” during the 2014-2015 season.

Fun Fact: Daniel’s favorite TV show is Breaking Bad.
