Academy Junior Trainee
Gabriela began her dance training at the age of two. For the past twelve years she has studied a variety of dance styles, including: ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary, hip-hop, and Polynesian. This is her first year with the IPB Academy and the Morning Conservatory Program. Since Gabriela’s first pre-professional performance in Maple Youth Ballet’s The Nutcracker, at the age of five, her love for ballet has grown. She has performed in A Dancers Pointe Performing Arts Center’s rendition of The Nutcracker for the past five years, and in their yearly Spring Productions, which have included Pinocchio, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Alice In Wonderland, The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, and Cinderella. Gabriela received main roles in The Lion King as Banzai, the Hyena, and in Cinderella as Lady Tremaine. For the past three years she has also been a solo audition winner for ADP’s annual recital. She is excited to be participating in IPB’s The Nutcracker this year! Gabriela has been a member of the High Desert Youth Ballet for the past two seasons. She has also received acceptance into Joffrey Ballet New York summer intensive and training program. This past summer she attended IPBA’s summer intensive and is thrilled and honored to be a Junior Trainee with IPBA this year.
