1st Year with Orlando Ballet II


Hunter Baehrens began his dance training in the state of Hawaii at the Mid-Pacific Institute School of the Arts under the direction of Paul Maley, and at Ballet Hawaii under the direction of Pamela Taylor Tongg. He completed his last two years of high school at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts under the Dean of Dance, Susan Jaffe, and his primary instructor, Ilya Kozadayev. He then spent a year at the Houston Ballet Academy under the instruction of Claudio Muñoz before auditioning for a position with OBII. He is grateful for the opportunity to dance under the instruction of such an amazing group of faculty and is looking forward to his first full year with OBII.
