Chyrstyn Mariah Fentroy was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, where she trained with her mother Ruth Fentroy until the age of 17. She then moved to New York City after being offered a scholarship to the Joffrey Ballet School trainee program. During her first year there, she was asked to join the Joffrey Ballet School Performance Company in which she danced several principal roles in works such as Gerald Arpino’s Birthday Variations and Davis Robertson’s UnEquilibrium. Ms. Fentroy competed in the Youth America Grand Prix finals in New York in 2010 and 2011, where she was then asked to compete in the Beijing International Ballet and Choreography Competition. She has also had her contemporary choreography recognized in other competitions. (via http://harlemreturnstodenver.com/index.php/dth/dth)
