Natalie Payne Alumni

Natalie started in the full time program at TCC in July of 2012.  In early 2013, whilst on holiday in California, she happened to be in San Francisco at the time Houston Ballet Academy was holding Summer Intensive auditions.  She auditioned successfully for their summer program.  Over the six week period, she auditioned for their year round program and was thrilled to be accepted but sad to say goodbye to her Conlan family.  Natalie moved all the way to Houston and spent two years at the Academy.  After graduating from Houston she was accepted into the Milwaulkee Second Company and is currently dancing in her second year there.
