St. Petersburg Ballet Company
The St. Petersburg Ballet Company is the official company-in-residence at the Academy of Ballet Arts (a 501(c)3 Nonprofit). The St. Petersburg Ballet Company performs our annual production of the Nutcracker as well as a Spring Dance Concert each year. We also perform at a number of venues in the Tampa Bay area throughout the year.

Daniel Johnson graduated from Gibbs High School/PCCA/Dance in 2008. He attended The Boston Conservatory on a full tuition scholarship and graduated in 2012 with a major in Dance. Daniel then moved to New York City and joined the Nai Ni Chen Dance Company, where he remained for two years. They performed a style of modern contemporary dance mixed with martial arts and tai chi. Daniel then relocated to Asheville, North Carolina, where he taught in several local studios and performed in local productions. 

He is grateful for the opportunity to return to St. Petersburg and perform for his beloved home studio. Daniel would like to dedicate his performances to his precious young daughter, Izabella.
