City Ballet alumna, Matisse D’Aloisio has just been hired by Sacramento Ballet!!

Matisse began dancing at City Ballet in 2005, quite literally growing up at the school. During her time here, Matisse has danced almost every role in The Nutcracker, from an Angel to the Sugar Plum Fairy✨. In addition, she performed many lead roles including "Odette" in Swan Lake, title roles in Paquita and Raymonda, and the principal role in Esmeralda Pas de Fleurs. In 2016, Matisse was awarded first place 🥇 in the Senior Classical Division for Women in the YAGP San Francisco Regional Semi-Finals, as well as first place 🥇 in the Pas de Deux Ensemble Category.

We will miss you, Matisse!
