Ballet Artistic Director: Myrta George aka Mrs. G.
Born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, ballet teacher Myrta George started her dance training at age 5. After graduating from high school, she auditioned and was accepted at the prestigious School of American Ballet, the school for the New York City Ballet.

During her professional career, she danced with ballet companies in Puerto Rico, New York and London.

Our goal for each athlete is:
