Jacqueline Callahan is from Abington, Pennsylvania, a sprawling suburb just north of Philadelphia. Although she went far and wide to train in ballet, she didn't have to go too far from home to find her place in the world of dance.
She trained in Boston and New York before going back to the Keystone State and joining the Pennsylvania Ballet's corps de ballet. Her performances include roles in Angel Corella's Don Quixote, Christopher Wheeldon's Swan Lake, and of course, The Nutcracker.
Fun fact: She's currently pursuing a communications degree at the University of Pennsylvania.
