A Defining Moment

I would have to say performing at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City, New York. In that moment, I forgot about everything and just danced.


Tyler Donatelli was born in Huntington Beach, California and trained at the Southland Ballet Academy in Fountain Valley, CA.  She was the silver medal winner at 2012 Youth America Grand Prix as well as first prize in ballet at The Music Center Spotlight Awards 2012.   She joined Houston Ballet II in January 2013 and became an apprentice for Houston Ballet in 2014.  Ms. Donatelli continued as a corps de ballet in 2015.  In 2017 she was promoted to Demi Soloist in March and Soloist in September.

She has performed roles in Stanton Welch's Zodiac, Tapestry, Romeo and Juliet, and Giselle, Mark Morris’ The Letter V and Balanchine's Serenade.  She has had roles created on her in Stanton Welch’s Zodiac, Just and Justin Peck’s Reflections.

Ms. Tyler has danced in several tours including Stanton Welch’s Swan Lake in Dubai, UAE and Minneapolis, MN (2018); Stanton Welch’s Velocity in Bonn and Tapestry in Ludwigshafen, Germany (2017); and Stanton Welch’s world premiere of Just and Sons de L’âme and Trey McIntyre’s In Dreams at Jacob’s Pillow in Becket, MA (2018).  As part of the Company’s 50th Anniversary in October of 2019, she traveled to New York City’s City Center to reprise her original role in Justin Peck’s Reflections.
