Henry started dancing when he was five years old and has danced exclusively with Extensions ever since. A single class five years ago turned into a passion for dance through the mentoring and development provided by teachers like Lizzie Mackenzie and the faculty at Extensions Dance Center. Henry is very excited for his fourth year as a member of Extensions and this will mark his first year with the Junior Company! Henry has also had the honor of playing Fritz in the Ballet Legere Nutcracker. He also placed in the top 10 at 2017 YAGP semi-finals in contemporary, and in 2019 he placed in the top ten and was invited to attend YAGP finals in NY with his contemporary solo. It was an amazing experience! When Henry is not dancing, he enjoys designing, building contraptions, anything with Legos, and will never turn down a good Nerf gun fight! This year he will enjoy his second year at Catherine Cook Elementary School and he is very excited to be a founding member of Chicago City Classical Ballet under the direction of Tatyana Mazur!
