Lydia Miller started dancing and found her love of dance at age 4. She began her pre-professional ballet career at The School of Pennsylvania Ballet in 2016. During her two-year tenure there she performed in 23 performances of Pennsylvania Ballet’s Balanchine Nutcracker. In addition, she proudly represented the PBS school at the Philly Youth Dance Fest in 2017.
Under the direction of Pamela Levy and Douglas Martin, Lydia was asked to join the American Repertory Ballet as a Trainee in 2018 on a merit scholarship. She performed the roles of Snow and Flowers in ARB’s Nutcracker and danced The Waltz of the Hours in Coppelia. Lydia worked with acclaimed choreographers Mary Barton and Kirk Peterson and was honored to dance in Scarlet Sonata and Beauty and the Beast.
In 2019, Lydia began working with Mark and Melissa Roxey, founders of Roxey Ballet. Lydia performed with the company in their adaptations of Dracula, Nutcracker and Carmen and danced the role of Dewdrop Fairy in Roxey Ballet’s Made for Television Nutcracker 2020 virtual presentation. Lydia looks forward to sharing her gift of dance with audiences this year.
