Daniel Kubr

CB2 | Oberägeri, Switzerland | Joined Cincinnati Ballet in 2018

Daniel was born and raised in Switzerland and moved to Carlisle, Pennsylvania, in 2015 to train at the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet (CPYB) under the direction of Marcia Dale Weary. At CPYB, in addition to Marcia, he trained with Simon Ball, Nicholas Ade, and Darla Hoover, amongst others. During his time at CPYB he also attended two summer intensives at the Pacific Northwest Ballet.

Touchet will never forget her 19th birthday. That was the day Victoria Morgan came to Pacific Northwest Ballet, to audition Touchet’s professional division. “Directors from everywhere auditioned us, but nobody ever picked me,” she says. “I remember thinking she wouldn’t like me anyway, so I told myself to just have fun, and after it was over, she said, ‘I’d like to talk to Janessa’.” Crossed wires with communicating Touchet’s acceptance of Morgan’s apprenticeship offer led to a planned spot with Memphis Ballet, but Morgan called one last time and Touchet was able to come to Cincinnati Ballet instead. “It was meant to be here. I started as an Apprentice and moved all the way through the ranks. I had always had my heart and mind set on Cincinnati Ballet.”
