Amy Seiwert's Imagery

Meet Imagery collaborator Aidan DeYoung. Aidan received his training at the Academy Of Ballet in San Francisco before joining Ballet West where he performed roles in works by Balanchine, Sir Frederick Ashton, Jiri Kylian, Nicolo Fonte and Helen Pickett. Aidan returned to the Bay Area and joined Smuin Ballet. While there he danced in ballets by Adam Houghland and Helen Pickett as well as creating roles in Amy Seiwert’s But Now I Must Rest and Val Caniparoli’s Tutto Eccetto il Lavandino. Aidan has recently worked for BurnsWork, Liss Fain Dance, Amy Seiwert’s Imagery, and Robert Dekkers’ Post:Ballet. As a choreographer, Aidan has created three works: Outward, Eenvoudig and InForm. Aidan spends his free time away from dance playing tennis, throwing frisbees, and baking bread.
