Jillian Foley grew up in Niskayuna, NY where she got her dance training at Northeast Ballet Company, under the direction of Darlene Myers. She graduated from The Hartt School at the University of Hartford with a BFA in Ballet Pedagogy under the direction of Stephen Pier, and two minors in Psychology and Performing Arts Management. While at Hartt, Jillian had many opportunities to work with classical and contemporary choreographers, and had the opportunity to travel to Amsterdam, The Netherlands to dance with the Henny Jurriens Foundation. Jillian performed in Amalgamate Dance Company’s Guest Artist Showcase with choreography by Amy Marshall in March 2016 and she recently choreographed and danced in Orpheé et Eurydice at Des Moines Metro Opera. Jillian teaches at Joffrey Ballet School in NYC among other studios in the area and dances with Amy Marshall Dance Company. She is very excited to join Steffi Nossen School of Dance this Fall!
