Becky Slaga Pettit

Becky began taking ballet classes at the age of 4 under the direction of Delia Foley, A.R.A.D. in Clark Mills, New York. She would later join the Mohawk Valley Ballet, where she performed soloist and principal roles. Becky supplemented her training at summer intensive programs at the New York State Summer School of the Arts, The Rock School of the Pennsylvania Ballet, Boston Ballet and American Ballet Theatre.

In 2003, Becky moved to Indianapolis to attend Butler University, from where she earned a B.S. in Dance and Arts Administration. As a member of Butler Ballet, she performed soloist and principal roles, including Dew Drop Fairy and Snow Queen in the Nutcracker and was also featured in an original piece by world-renowned choreographer James Kudelka. In the summer of 2007, Becky trained on scholarship with Tulsa Ballet and was offered a contract with Tulsa Ballet II. However, having previously accepted a position with the Louisville Ballet, she moved to Louisville, KY in August of that year. She spent two seasons under contact with the Louisville Ballet and also taught at the Louisville Ballet School.

Since returning to Indianapolis, Becky has taught ballet and pointe at various dance studios and also works full time at a law firm. She is excited to join Expressenz Dance Center and share her love of ballet with every student. Becky hopes to inspire young dancers to reach for the stars and achieve their dreams.
