Ada Chung '23

Co-Founder/Co-President

Ada is a second-year studying Psychobiology from Los Altos, CA. After finding that there weren’t any dance groups on campus that focused on classical ballet, she decided to create UCLA’s first student-directed ballet company with Moe. She began her classical ballet training at the age of 5 and later trained pre-professionally at the Ramon Moreno School of Ballet in Palo Alto where she has performed roles such as the Sugar Plum Fairy, Kitri, and Swanhilda. Ada has competed at the World Ballet Competition in 2018 and has attended the Bolshoi Ballet Academy Summer Intensive in Moscow, Russia, the Joffrey Ballet School Summer Intensive, and the American Academy of Ballet Summer Intensive in NYC. She hopes that through the UCLA Ballet Company she can share her passion for ballet with other UCLA students. She loves getting to meet new friends, teach, and choreograph dance pieces!
