Quinn Barrett

CB2 | Spartanburg, SC | Joined Cincinnati Ballet in 2018

For the last two years Quinn Barrett has attended the University of Cincinnati-College Conservatory of Music, after a high school education at the South Carolina Governors School for the Arts and Humanities, as a Dance Major in both institutions. In College Quinn performed many roles, including Solar in La Bayadere, Lucien in Paquita, and Blue Bird in Sleeping Beauty, as well as choreography by José Limon, Roger Van Fleteren, and others.  He is very excited for his first year with CB2.

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.”
