Where Are They Now?: Jillian Hughes
Let me introduce you to Jillian Hughes. She got her start in our StarNOW class in 2013. She is 16 years old and began dancing when she was 3 years old. She has danced with Abilene Ballet Theatre and most recently with Lone Star Ballet in Amarillo.
Jillian is currently a first year trainee with Joffrey Ballet School’s Jazz and Contemporary program in New York City. Recently, she was chosen to participate in the 25th Anniversary Performance of New York Hip Hop Company k3rt taped by VH1 and Telemundo.
She will be dancing in the Winter Concert on Feb 15th and just finished up a showcase at the Alvin Ailey Theater in NY that featured Joffrey Dancers as well as Ballroom and Flamenco Dancers.
Jillian would like to use her talent to travel the world with a dance company, teach underprivileged children dance, and eventually start her own company.
We’re so proud of you, Jillian!
