Lauren AndersonBeth Everitt

Beth Everitt, originally from Knoxville, Tennessee, began dancing at the age of 3. By the age of 12 she knew she wanted to be a professional dancer. After studying at the Van Metre School of Dance, under Amy Morton Vaughn, and the Washington School of Ballet, under the direction of Mary Day, she attended her first Summer Intensive at Houston Ballet Academy. At 15 she was invited to join Houston Ballet Academy’s Year Round Program under full scholarship. She has worked with many renowned classical ballet teachers including Claudio Munoz, Clara Cravey, Steve Brule, Ben Stevenson, Mary Day, Victoria Leigh, Amy Morton Vaughn, and Nancy Bielski. Before beginning her teaching career she was a member of Houston Ballet, Louisville Ballet, and most recently Dominic Walsh Dance Theatre. Through her dancing career she has been fortunate to perform works by George Balanchine, Fredrick Ashton, Choo San Goh, Ben Stevenson, Adam Hougland, Andre Prokovsky, and Dominic Walsh among others. Beth has also performed as a guest artist dancing the roles of the Sugarplum Fairy in The Nutcracker and the title role in Giselle. In addition to teaching at Houston Ballet Academy, she is also a certified GYROTONIC® instructor and believes in the integration of this training into the ballet class technique.
