Fiona Connolly grew up dancing in Ohio at the Ballet Theatre of Toledo under the tutelage of Royal Ballet School graduate and English National Ballet principal dancer, Nigel Burgoine. She trained with faculty of the English National Ballet School during their international summer workshop in 2015. Fiona attended Cincinnati Ballet’s summer intensive program in 2016 before starting at Butler University in their prestigious collegiate ballet program.
At Butler, she danced in numerous original works choreographed by the faculty as well as two full-scale classical ballets each year. In the summer of 2018, Fiona toured with the Butler Ballet Ensemble in Poland, the Slovak Republic, the Czech Republic, and Austria. Fiona graduated Magna Cum Laude with High Honors in Dance in May 2020 with a Bachelors of Science in Dance Arts Administration and a minor in English Literature.
Fiona is so excited to join New England Ballet Theatre as a Company Artist for the 2020-2021 season!
