Angela Agresti was born and raised in Indianapolis where she was trained at Jordan College Academy of Dance before moving to the University of North Carolina School of the Arts for ballet. She grew up dancing in Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre’s Nutcracker, student company, and did multiple performances with the main company. After high school, Angela went on to dance in Cincinnati Ballet for one season before moving to Amsterdam to be in Dutch National Ballet where she danced for the last 8 years. While at Dutch National Ballet, she danced a mix of classical ballet, Balanchine works, Hans van Manen, and contemporary and neoclassical works, along with new creations. She has been featured in William Forsythe’s Second Detail, Alexei Ratmansky’s Don Quichot, along with many other demi-soloist roles in ballets such as The Dream, Paquita, and Swan Lake. Not only has she been able to share her gifts as a dancer, but she has also worked alongside multiple choreographers at Dutch National Ballet as a ballet master. These works were performed within the company, and brought to the Origen Cultural Festival in Riom, Switzerland where she was also responsible to lead the dancers in daily class. Angela recently expanded her work by working on the first Virtual Reality ballet created by Peter Leung that has been a part of festivals and the first Virtual Reality Cinema in Amsterdam. As well as teaching, assisting, choreographing, and dancing, she is a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach that works to guide and educate clients in total mind-body health and wellness. While achieving mind-body connection through personal and group coaching, she has recently added and co-developed a gently-guided healing movement class called Hypno- Move that is presented in Indianapolis.
