We were so happy to celebrate our former student, Victor Abreu, Class of 2015, winner of the Clive & Valerie Barnes Foundation Award – given to two talented young professionals in the artistic fields of dance and theater annually. Victor’s Epiphany teachers were invited to the ceremony. Ms. McHugh, Ms. LaGuardia, Ms. Rennell, Ms. Zannelli, and Sr. Rebecca were in attendance to see Victor accept his award.
Victor Abreu is a member of New York City Ballet’s corps de ballet. Abreu was born in NYC and began his training at the age of 10. He attended the summer courses at the School of American Ballet, NYCB’s official school, before entering SAB full-time in 2015. In January 2019, Victor was named an apprentice with NYCB and in May 2019 he joined the Company as a member of the corps de ballet.
Since joining NYCB, Victor has performed leading roles in George Balanchine’s “Chaconne,” “George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker” (Hot Chocolate, Mother Ginger), and “Scotch Symphony,” Peter Martins’ “The Sleeping Beauty” (Jesters, Wolf), Justin Peck’s “Belles-Lettres” and “Partita,” and Jamar Roberts’ “Emanon – In Two Movements.” He also originated the leading role in Roberts’ “Water Rite” and a corps de ballet role in Peck’s “Copland Dance Episodes.” Victor is well on his way to an outstanding career and we couldn’t be prouder of his success!
Victor’s Epiphany classmates in 2015 voted him Best Dancer!
