Jack Ragland
First Year Trainee

My name is Jack Ragland. I grew up on a small farm in South Carolina right outside West Columbia. I began my ballet training in 2007 at South Carolina Christian Dance Theatre. After about ten years of taking ballet and tap I bagan to narrow my scope on a more ballet oriented path, also including some Graham and Horton technique. I trained under Cynthia Dewar and Erin Elizabeth Morton, graduating in 2022.

 

Throughout my time at SCCDT I furthered my training by attending summer intensives at Pennsylvania Ballet (Now Philidelphia Ballet), SC Dance Conservatory, and Charlotte Ballet.

 

In 2021 I was invited to the Tampa, Youth America Grand Prix Finales.

 

I was offered a trainee position at United Ballet Theatre this summer after performing in the UBT summer intensive showcase.
