APPRENTICES

Kenny Allen was born in Denver, Colorado. He asked his parents to start ballet at the age of 2 after a dancer from Colorado Ballet visited his class in preschool. Kenny trained at many studios around Denver as well as attending middle school at Denver School of the Arts. He moved to Tampa to study at Next Generation Ballet and upon graduation was offered a place in Boston Ballet’s Trainee Program. During his time at Boston Ballet he was given the opportunity to participate in the Prix de Lausanne Partner School Choreographic Project. After spending a shortened season in Boston due to the pandemic, Kenny was offered a contract with Sarasota Ballet’s Studio Company. While at Sarasota Ballet he had the chance to perform in Elite Syncopations by Sir Kenneth MacMillan, Giselle by Sir Peter Wright, and the world premiere of A Comedy of Errors by Sir David Bintley. This is Kenny’s first season with Colorado Ballet.
