8th grader named ballet ambassador

A Santa Catalina Lower and Middle School eighth grader has been selected to be a Youth Ambassador for Monterey Peninsula Ballet Theatre. She was chosen after an application process and will serve a two-year term volunteering in the community, developing leadership skills, and promoting ballet.

JoJo has been studying ballet since she was 3 years old and has won many accolades in the dance competition world. She also loves to study musical theatre after school at Santa Catalina and assist teachers at The Dance Center and Pacific Repertory Theater Company. She has performed in The Nutcracker and other ballets around the San Francisco Bay Area and Carmel.

JoJo said she wanted to be a youth ambassador because she loves to help out in the community and wanted to build her resume in dance.

You can see her starring in The Nutcracker at the Sunset Center from December 8–10. Congratulations to JoJo! We are excited to see her flex her leadership skills in this new role.
