Kobe Atwood Courtney (USA)

Richmond, Virginia

Joined Orlando Ballet in 2019


Kobe Courtney was introduced to dance through Richmond Ballet’s Outreach program “Minds in Motion.” After receiving a scholarship, he started ballet at the age of 10. Five years later he decided to continue his training at Pittsburgh Ballet Theater. During his two years at Pittsburgh Ballet Theater he was able to learn and perform many pieces including Peter Pan, Bluebird Pas de Deux, and Etudes. He finished his training at San Francisco Ballet School. There, he was fortunate to perform some of his favorite pieces, Balanchine’s Stars and Stripes and an excerpt of Jiri Kylians Sarabande. He is very excited to join Orlando Ballet for the 2019-20 season.
