Pastures New for Class of 2022

Tuesday July 19th 2022


The end of an Elmhurst year is always full of mixed emotions as we bid farewell to some incredible, talented and resilient young people – the Elmhurst Ballet Company of the 2021-2022 academic year.

The young dancers of the Class of 2022 started Upper School and their final three years of training as the pandemic hit, so to see so many wonderful offers of employment, proves how hard they have worked, regardless of many hurdles. They are a group of committed and dedicated individuals who are ready to make their mark in life, be it on stage or away from performance as other vocations beckon.
