BalletMet 2 Dancer Jacob Beasley

If I weren’t dancing, I’d want to be a writer.

Jacob Beasley was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nev., where he began his dance training under the instruction of April Wexelmen, Bri Lederman and Don Bellamy while also attending his performing arts high school, Las Vegas Academy.  At age 16, he continued his ballet training with Houston Ballet Academy for two years under the instruction of Claudio Munoz and Academy Director Vicki Attard.  Mr. Beasley had the privilege of being chosen to represent Houston Ballet by participating in the Prix de Lausanne’s first year of the partner school choreographic project, working under the instruction of choreographer Goyo Montero.  This is Mr. Beasley’s second season with BalletMet 2.
