Designer - Stacy Caddell

Stacy Caddell, a native of Norfolk, Virginia, embarked on her dance journey at the age of 5. Her early training led her to the School of American Ballet, where her talent earned her an invitation to join the New York City Ballet under the guidance of George Balanchine. Rising through the ranks, she was promoted to Soloist and performed numerous Principal roles.

Transitioning from NYCB, Stacy joined Twyla Tharp and Dancers, touring globally, including a collaboration with Mikhail Baryshnikov in "Cutting Up." As her performing career concluded, she became Ms. Tharp's assistant on ballets like "Know By Heart" at American Ballet Theater and "Beethoven's Seventh" at NYCB. Stacy assumed the role of Dance Supervisor for Twyla Tharp's Broadway production, "Movin' Out," and played a pivotal role in staging its first National Tour.

Breaking new ground, Stacy staged the Broadway show "Come Fly Away" at the Royal Danish Ballet, marking the first collaboration between a ballet company and Broadway. As a repetiteur for Twyla Tharp's repertory, she has staged ballets globally, working with prestigious companies like ABT, NYCB, Royal Danish Ballet, and more.

Stacy is also a repetiteur for the Balanchine Trust, staging iconic ballets such as "Serenade," "Symphony in C," "The Nutcracker," and others. Beyond staging, she has showcased her choreographic talent in various projects, including the opera "Aida," the short film "Central Park," and ballets like "Twin Souls" for the Joffrey Concert Group.

Currently serving as a Guest Faculty member at Ballet Academy East and a teacher for The Joffrey Ballet School in New York City, Stacy Caddell continues to contribute significantly to the world of dance, leaving an indelible mark on both classical and contemporary stages.
