Hannah Bradshaw was born in Amarillo, Texas, where she grew up dancing with the Lone Star Ballet and Landance Conservatory. She competed at the Youth America Grand Prix finals and attended summer programs with the American Ballet Theatre and Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre. Hannah began her professional career as an Apprentice with the Oklahoma City Ballet then became a Trainee with BalletMet Columbus where she was chosen to perform and tour with the main company. Hannah has had the opportunity to perform in many wonderful roles with Ballet Arkansas, most recently as one of the four Cygnets in “Swan Lake”, Kitri in “Don Quixote”, Lucy in Michael Fothergill’s “Dracula” and Snow Queen in “The Nutcracker”.
"In the next season at Ballet Arkansas, I am looking forward to seeing the contrast between our more traditional ballets such as The Nutcracker or Cinderella and our more contemporary offerings like Debut and Master/Works. I love dancing both classical and contemporary repertoire so I cannot wait to tackle both aspects of our season."
