Miriam-Rose LeDuc



Originally from the state of Maine, Miriam-Rose began her serious classical ballet training with Bossov Ballet Theatre at a very young age. At the age of twelve, after moving to Maryland, she trained for five years at the Kirov Academy of Ballet, Washington D.C., and one year at Maryland Youth Ballet. Upon her graduation from high school, she was invited to return to Bossov Ballet Theatre to dance the lead in their full length summer production of Giselle. She went on to major in ballet at Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music, where she had the privilege of learning and performing roles such as The Rancher’s Daughter in Rodeo, Caroline in Lilac Garden, and Snow Princess and Arabian in The Nutcracker. Miriam-Rose graduated from Indiana University in May 2013, and began her professional career with Ballet 5:8. While there, she performed soloist roles in many original works including The Story of Job, The Four Seasons of the Soul, Proverbs, and Indwelling, in addition to serving as the Director of the Children's Division in the School of the Arts. Miriam-Rose is thrilled to be continuing her career by joining the faculty of the Joffrey Academy of Dance.
