The Beauty of Dance, Part Four: Madison Morris, Houston Ballet, Houston, TX

Madison Morris may sound like the name of a suburb in New Jersey, but it fact it's the name of a dancer who's one of the more recent additions to the Houston Ballet company's corps de ballet. 

She joined the Houston Ballet as an apprentice in 2010 and was promoted to its corps de ballet just in time for the 2011-2012 season.

Among the dances she's performed in since joining the company are  Ben Stevenson's The Sleeping Beauty,  Stanton Welch's Velocity and John Cranko's The Taming of the Shrew. She counts classical story ballet works such as Onegin and Swan Lake among her personal favorites. 

Madison Morris is originally from North Carolina.
