Isabel began dancing at age three in Savannah, Georgia at The Studio with Veronica Moretti Niebuhr. Isabel competed in the Youth America Grand Prix, and at age 12 she placed third in the regional level of the competition and advanced to the New York City Finals for the second time. She has also attended pre-professional ballet summer intensives at The Rock School, Chautauqua, and the School of American Ballet.
Isabel moved to Carlisle, Pennsylvania in 2014 and trained at Marcia Dale Weary’s Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet (CPYB) for two years. At CPYB, Isabel was offered a full merit scholarship. She had the opportunity to dance soloist roles as well as perform in ballets choreographed by George Balanchine, Price Suddarth, and Abby Jayne DeAngelo.
In August 2016, Isabel, at age 15, will move to Los Angeles to train at the Colburn Dance Academy. The Colburn Dance Academy is led by former New York City Ballet principal dancers Jennifer Ringer and James Fayette.
