Dymphna Gergerich -

Before joining the company, Pittsburgh native Dymphna Gergerich trained at West Point Ballet in Coraopolis, PA under the direction of two former dancers from the National Ballet of Cuba; Cynthia Castillo & Damien Coro.  During her time at WPB, she has performed several lead roles in The Nutcracker (Clara & Sugar Plum Fairy); Le Corasire (Medora); & Sleeping Beauty (Aurora). Other memorable roles include Dew Drop in The Nutcracker, an Odalisque in Le Corsaire, a step-sister in Cinderella, and Bluebird Pas de Duex in Sleeping Beauty. Her training also includes summer intensives at Arizona Ballet, Gelsey Kirkland Academy, & Valentina Kozlova Dance Conservatory. During these summer intensives, she was fortunate enough to train with Carlos Valcarcel, Gelsey Kirkland, and Valentina Kozlova. Dymphna is looking forward to her first season with Columbia Classical Ballet.
