Julie Kent

Biography

Kent grew up in Potomac, attended Winston Churchill High School and studied at Maryland Youth Ballet with Hortensia Fonseca and Michelle Lees. The first professional stage she performed on was the Kennedy Center Opera House, where as a child she was a supernumerary in "Coppelia," in a production with the great stars Mikhail Baryshnikov and Patricia McBride. Promoted to principal dancer at ABT in 1993, Kent's career is one of rare distinction. She was a favorite pick of visiting choreographers, and she danced as a guest artist at major companies around the world. She has starred in two movies about the ballet world: "Dancers" in 1987 and "Center Stage" in 2000. She is currently a teacher and coach for ABT and, for more than a decade, has taught master classes nationally and internationally. Last year, she was named artistic director of ABT's 1,400-student summer intensives.
