Director of Programs

Chandler Eldridge is a first-year Sociology major from San Clemente, California. She hopes to help bring the art of ballet to the UCLA community by planning and executing UCLA Ballet Company’s upcoming workshops and performances. Chandler has been dancing since she was 11 and began her pre-professional training at Dmitri Kulev Classical Ballet at the age of 14. She has trained in both the ABT Curriculum and the Vaganova method. She has had the opportunity to perform in several ballets such as Swan Lake, George Balanchine’s Serenade, and The Nutcracker. She has also attended the Milwaukee Ballet Summer Intensive in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and the Next Generation Ballet Summer Intensive in Tampa, Florida. Chandler is so excited to be a part of UCLA Ballet Company and looks forward to helping those who have wanted to try ballet in the past, who are currently involved in ballet, and those who have never been involved in ballet before.
