ABOUT | Drew is from Devon, PA and this will be his first year at Charlotte Ballet. He has been dancing since he was 12 years old, but outside of dance, Drew enjoys reading, taking long walks, and lounging around with his cat Lucas.
BALLET FAVORITES | Drew has enjoyed every role he’s performed, even the ones he didn’t enjoy at the time, because they all brought him to where he is today as a dancer. His favorite choreographers include Balanchine, Tudor, Macmillan, Forsythe, Bausch, Tharp, Maillot, Pickett, Wheeldon, Hampson, Dawson, Lange, Neenan, Naharin, Rhoden and Seiwert.
ADVICE FOR ASPIRING DANCERS |”Perseverance is key. There’s going to be plenty of disappointment, but if you work smart and believe in yourself, you tend to end up where you’re meant to be.”
“What I find most exciting about joining Charlotte Ballet is the diverse repertoire we perform. It’s my first season, so I’m excited for all the programs and just getting to know all the dancers.” – Drew Grant
