Maia Virgil began her dance training at Swarthmore Ballet Theatre under Lori Ardis, Amber Flynn, and William DeGregory studying Ballet and Modern. At SBT, she performed in many classical ballets in addition to choreographing many of her own works. She also attended numerous intensives including Boston Ballet, Alvin Ailey, BalletX, and b12 in Berlin, Germany.
She continued her studies at New York University Tisch School of the Arts where she graduated cum laude with a BFA in Dance and Classics, and a minor in Linguistics. There, she performed works by Dwight Rhoden and Yin Yue, as well as her own choreographic works.
Maia recently completed her MA in Dance Education at NYU Steinhardt with a full certification in American Ballet Theatre’s National Training Curriculum (Pre-Primary through Level 7 and Partnering). She is a current company member with Axons Dance Theatre and looks forward to performing and choreographing alongside her passionate commitment to teaching. She is very excited to join PDT’s professional faculty this season!
