Born in New York City, Elizabeth Walker trained at the American Ballet Theatre school before joining Los Angeles Ballet as an inaugural company member in 2006. She went on to study History of Art and Architecture at Harvard, graduating in 2011 and receiving the Suzanne Farrell Dance Prize. After graduation she returned to LA Ballet where she was recently promoted to the rank of Soloist. Throughout her seven years with Los Angeles Ballet she has performed featured roles in the classical, Balanchine, modern and contemporary repertoire.
George Balanchine captures Mozart in the crystalline Divertimento No. 15, (an LAB Premiere), and expresses the playful spirit of Gershwin in Who Cares? Haunting in its beauty and pathos, Prodigal Son is as meaningful and moving today as when it debuted for the Ballets Russes in 1929.
