Jonathan is a 16 year old level 6 student from Houston, Texas. Jonathan has been dancing for 3 years at the Ballet Center of Houston and with Houston Repertoire Ballet. He has been in ballets such as Nutcracker, Midsummer Nights Dream, Cinderella, and Storybook. Other activities that he is involved in include speech, debate, square dancing, Civil Air Patrol, and viola. Talk about well-rounded! Jonathan has a love for engineering and mathematics, and ballet of course. During this Summer Intensive, he intends to decide whether he should continue with his ballet career. I don’t know about y’all, but I sure hope he sticks with it!

Jonathan wants to be a Summer Intensive video blogger to gain interview experience; therefore I will do my best to improve his skills! Besides being involved in Color Guard, speech, and debate, Jonathan has no experience in front of the camera. Dancers must present themselves in front of an audience and with his performance background; this blog will be a breeze!
This courageous young man is attending the Summer Intensive here at Houston Ballet in order to improve his technique and repertoire. He also would like to gain knowledge in what it would be like to be a part of a professional ballet company. Jonathan hopes to decide based on the outcome of this intensive whether or not he will become an engineer or continue with ballet. I know one thing for sure and that is no matter which direction he goes, Jonathan will most definitely flourish.
Stay tuned for the last student video blog post coming soon! The video will show various students sharing their favorite parts of summer and some unique talents.
