Noelle Boyages began her ballet training at age 12 in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. Ballet quickly became her passion; she trained at several different summer intensive programs including Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, Orlando Ballet Theatre, Miami City Ballet, American Ballet Theatre (NY), and Ballet Austin.
While training with Ballet Austin for the summer, she was awarded a full scholarship to train with the company through their Butler Fellowship Program. After an amazing year in Texas, Noelle then decided to take a break from ballet and pursue academic interests at Denison University. She graduated in 2021 with a BA in History, Women and Gender Studies, and Black Studies. With an undergraduate degree under her belt, Noelle is once again pursuing ballet as a career, with intentions to attend law school sometime in the near future. She is very excited to join Baldwin Wallace’s Community Arts School program and to help other young dancers work to hone their craft and pursue their passions, whatever they may be!
