“I watched the movie An American in Paris and wanted to dance like Gene Kelly,” says Daniel Wagner. Originally from Monrovia, California, 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. Wagner joined The Cincinnati Ballet Second Company in 2013. As an Apprentice this season he says he is "looking forward to dancing even more, meeting new people and experiencing new choreography.”
Fun fact: Daniel loves watching nature documentaries!
