Yes, the capital of Tennessee - also the capital of country music - has a ballet company! And Kayla Rowser is one of its members.
Originally from Conyers, Georgia, Ms. Rowser became a member of the Nashville Ballet's company in 2010 after having served as an apprentice. Her credits with the Nashville Ballet include performing as both the Dew Drop Fairy and Sugar Plum Fairy in The Nutcracker, Cupid in Vasterling’s Carmina Burana, and a part in Sarah Slipper’s Postcards from the Boys, as well as the title role in Nashville Ballet’s 2012 performance of Firebird.
Mr. Rowser also teaches ballet to young people, which she loves.
