Caili Quan

Caili started her dance training in her native Guam under the direction of John Grensback and Bettina Sanzotta.

At the age of 16, she moved from Guam to New York City to continue her classical training at Ballet Academy East. In 2007 Caili received a scholarship to be a trainee with Richmond Ballet, and in 2009 she received an apprenticeship with Charlotte Ballet (formerly North Carolina Dance Theatre) under Jean-Pierre Bonnefoux and Patricia McBride. During her training, she performed works by George Balanchine, Marius Petipa, and Malcolm Burn, among others.

Prior to BalletX, she spent three seasons with First State Ballet Theatre under Pasha Kambalov. She has had the pleasure to choreograph for Columbia Ballet Collaborative, St. Paul’s School, and Konverjdans. Her piece Fancy Me was performed at the Vail Dance Festival in 2018. Caili joined BalletX in January 2013.
