Hailey Flanagan was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia and began dancing at the age of 5. She quickly fell in love with being on stage and began her ballet training at Georgia Metropolitan Dance Theatre under Kathryn McBeth and Marina Levasheva. From there she moved to Cincinnati to join Cincinnati Ballet’s professional training division and was later promoted to their second company. In her two years in CB2, she performed various ballets by Victoria Morgan, Septime Webre, Amy Seiwert, David Morse, and performed the lead in Pamela Robinson Harris’ Snow White and Beauty and the Beast. She is thrilled to be joining Dayton Ballet for her first season!
