Violet Giddings '19

Violet is a junior at Boston University and a proud, cat-loving Philadelphian. She studies Psychology and Film with an interest in psychopathology.  At four years old she twirled into the Wissahickon Dance Academy and learned the fundamentals of ballet. Since, she has trained under Barbra Sandonato at the Sandonato School of Ballet, and Aranxta Ochoa at the School of the Pennsylvania Ballet. In high school, she juggled her GPA while performing with the Pennsylvania Ballet in A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream and annually in George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker. Violet also performed with the Leah Stein Dance Company in Rock, Reed, Tatami Stream and 10th Anniversary Concert during the Philadelphia Fringe Festival. She attended summer programs at the Miami City Ballet, Pennsylvania Ballet, The Rock School, and Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet. Aside from dance, Violet loves to play with her cats, make stop motion videos and take pictures.
