Dance Magazine Names Atlanta Ballet Dancer Jessica He Among "25 to Watch"

We are excited to share that Dance Magazine just named Atlanta Ballet company member Jessica He among its list of "25 to Watch" for 2019!

"The California-born graduate of The Rock School for Dance Education, newly recruited into Atlanta Ballet from Houston Ballet II last season, breathes freshness into any work she dances. She showed grace under pressure when she stepped into the lead role in Davidson's ballet just three days before the premiere last March. The role drew attention to He's innate ability to dance inside the notes as if in tune with a composer's inspiration. This musicality, proportionately blended with technical strength and a palpable sense of joy, makes He an embodiment of classicism—and an emerging muse." - Cynthia Bond Perry, Dance Magazine


Congratulations, Jessica!
