Bethany Green (she/her)

Bethany Green began her training at the age of three at Southold Dance Theater in South Bend, IN where she danced in many full-length ballets, performing roles such as Myrtha in Giselle and the Sugar Plum Fairy in The Nutcracker. She spent the summer of 2014 in Barcelona, Spain, interning as a dancer and administrative assistant with Centro de Danza Maxime d’Harroche. In 2016, she graduated with high distinction from Indiana University, receiving her degree in Ballet Performance from the Jacobs School of Music. During her time at IU, Ms. Green had the privilege of learning and performing in works by George Balanchine, Tywla Tharp, Merce Cunningham, Martha Graham, Paul Taylor, Nicolo Fonte, and Antony Tudor while under the direction of world-renowned instructors, most notably the legendary and luminous Violette Verdy. Green joined Oklahoma City Ballet as an apprentice in 2016, and then City Ballet of San Diego in 2017, dancing with the company until 2020. She has spent the last two winters as a guest dancer with Golden State Ballet in Jared Nelson’s production of The Nutcracker. Green was a founding artist with The Rosin Box Project, and has danced in twenty-three of its original works since its founding. As a choreographer, Green has had the honor of creating five original works, most recently Devil Get Behind Me, a playful bluegrass “sneaker ballet” which presented the company’s first collaboration with live musicians. She loves teaching her amazing students in adult ballet classes on Saturday mornings, and treasures every single moment she spends dancing and creating with her TRBP family. Currently she is threatening them with a waterslide/trampoline ballet/musical extravaganza as her next project, but is open to other possibilities.
