Aaron Ingley, originally from Tallahassee, Florida, studied musical theater at Young Actors Theater before beginning ballet training at age 13 with Southern Academy of Ballet Arts and Tallahassee Ballet. Aaron completed his professional training at Pacific Northwest Ballet School in Seattle, WA, where he performed with that company at the 1999 Edinburgh Festival and the 2000 Hong Kong Festival. He was also featured as Tom Snout in PNB’s production of George Balanchine’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream produced for television by the BBC. He performed professionally with Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre for nine seasons. A versatile dancer, Aaron was featured in numerous classical and contemporary roles and served as the company’s Principal Character Artist during that time.
In addition to performing and teaching ballet, Aaron is a professional actor and recently completed degrees in History and Management at University of Pittsburgh. A consummate innovator, Aaron pushes the boundaries, helping expand the ways in which art is conceptualized and defined, and is thrilled to be stepping up to the plate with Barre! In his free time he is an avid cyclist and enjoys creating delicious, healthy snacks in the kitchen with Julia.
