Get your tickets now for Pacific Northwest Ballet’s Roméo et Juliette before Noelani Pantastico retires from the ballet company she has called home for a majority of her professional dancing career.
After her final bow as the title character in Jean-Christophe Maillot’s striking version of this popular Shakespeare love story, Pantastico will move back to Carlisle, PA to join the faculty of Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, a return to the principal dancer’s own training grounds.
“I am honored to welcome Noelani back to CPYB,” said CEO (and former PNB company dancer and PNB School principal) Nicholas Ade. “Knowing her experience as a dancer in so many prestigious realms, and as a person and mentor to other dancers is something that I am bursting at the seams to have our students experience. Having the pleasure of even discussing this possibility over the last few days has made me smile and inspired for CPYB for years to come. Truly a selfless person without ego, when she says it’s time to give back, she means it…it’s about the students.”
