Jace Pauly (Cincinnati Ballet)

CINCINNATI, Ohio — A dancer with deep Wenatchee roots is now gracing the stage in Cincinnati.

Jace Pauly has joined the Cincinnati Ballet as a new dancer for their upcoming season, the dance company announced this week. The Wenatchee native began his dance training with instructor Melissa Miller-Port at Fabulous Feet.

After his junior year at Wenatchee High School, Pauly took further dance specialization at Walnut Hill School for the Arts in Natick, Massachusetts, graduating in 2015. Since then he’s performed with professional ballet companies in Atlanta and Oklahoma.

The Cincinnati Ballet started its socially-distanced 2020 dance season with outdoor performances in September.
