Ms. Boesch began her training at the School of American Ballet. During her ten years there she danced with the New York City Ballet in nearly every role for children in their repertoire. In SAB workshops she danced works by Balanchine, most notably Harlequinade and Le Tombeau de Couperin, as well as ballets by Jerome Robbins and Christopher Wheeldon. Ms. Boesch completed her training on full scholarship at the Pacific Northwest Ballet School, and joined the Pacific Northwest Ballet as a corps member after less than a year. Under the direction of Francia Russell, Ms. Boesch performed in many of Balanchine’s most famous ballets, including Agon, Serenade, Concerto Barocco, Western Symphony, Ballet Imperial, and La Valse. Her repertory there also included classics such as Paquita and Ronald Hynd’s Sleeping Beauty, and newer works by Peter Martins, Kent Stowell, and Lynn Taylor-Corbett. In 2003 Ms. Boesch joined the corps of American Ballet Theatre, where she danced for three years in all the great classics, including Swan Lake, Romeo and Juliet, Le Corsaire, Don Quixote, Giselle, and La Bayadere. She also performed in Agnes DeMille’s Rodeo and in the premiere of Kaleidoscope by choreographer Peter Quanz. With ABT she toured all over the country as well as to Japan. In 2008 Ms. Boesch joined the Staatsballett Berlin, under the direction of Vladimir Malakhov. As a corps member there she performed in John Cranko’s Onegin and in the premiere of Malakhov’s La Peri, among others. In 2010 Ms. Boesch staged and danced as a soloist in the Jen DeNike art piece Scrying, choreographed by Melissa Barak. Throughout her professional life Ms. Boesch has also appeared as a soloist with Dances Patrelle in Manhattan. She teaches in New York at Manhattan Youth Ballet.
