Meet Apprentice: Bethany Schwartz
How many seasons have you been with BalletFleming?
I joined half way through last season, so this will be my first full season!
Where were you dancing before joining BalletFleming?
Academy of International Ballet in Media, PA
Most embarrassing dance moment?
I went out on stage with green fuzzy socks in a performance of Nutcracker as the Harlequin doll. I had a hard time keeping a straight face on stage, but my directors weren’t laughing.

What is one of the best gifts you’ve ever received?
A handmade porcelain ballerina figure that my grandma got for me in Spain.
“Life is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get.” It’s not really my favorite, but it was the first one that came to mind.
Fun fact about you?
I used to be a competitive swimmer.
