Carrie Provisnal

Carrie Provinsal began her training at the age of seven under the direction of Neil and Camille Hess at the Hess School of Dance in Amarillo, TX. There she began performing in the productions of The Nutcracker and fell in love with the art form of ballet. She trained for two summers at the School of American Ballet, at ages 14 and 15, under the direction of George Balanchine. There, Carrie was fortunate to take classes with Ballet legends such as; Darcy Kistler, Alexander Gudunov, Rudolf Nureyev, Gelsey Kirkland, Mikhael Baryshnikov, Valery Panov and Galina Panova, and Leslie Browne. A few of her favorite instructors were; Felia Dubrovska, Alexandra Danilova, Andrei Kramarevsky, David Howard, and Suki Schorer.

Continuing her training, she performed with the Dallas Metropolitan Ballet, in ballet festivals in Texas and Louisiana, with original choreography focusing on pas­de­deux movement. Carrie was also fortunate to be accepted as an apprentice with the Dallas Ballet. Under the direction of George Skibine, Carrie danced as a member of the corps de ballet with the Dallas Ballet in productions of Firebird, Swan Lake, and also danced in the Dallas Opera’s production of Turandot.

Carrie is the mother to two young men, two cats, and one very loved, very old dog.
