Jonathan Dummar


Jonathan was introduced to the beautiful world of ballet by Ava Kerr of Nevada

Ballet Arts and went on to graduate valedictorian of the Harid Conservatory in

Boca Raton, Florida. He has performed professionally with the Joffrey Ballet of

Chicago, the Smuin Ballet, the Trey McIntyre Project, the San Francisco Opera

and has guested internationally with the National Ballet of China Tianjin.

Jonathan’s recently retired from Ballet Memphis in Memphis, TN and has since

moved back home to Northern Nevada to pursue a Master’s of Kinesiology from

the University of Nevada, Reno. Jonathan’s favorite classical roles include Prince

Seigfried in Swan Lake, Prince Charming in Cinderella, Franz in Coppelia and the

Sugarplum Cavalier in The Nutcracker. He has also performed principal roles in

noted contemporary and neoclassical works such as Jerome Robbins’ In the

Night, Mark Godden’s Angels in the Architecture, Trey McIntyre’s The Reassuring

Effects of Form and Poetry, Helen Pickett’s Petal, Jiri Kylian’s Return to a Strange

Land and George Balanchine’s Stravinsky Violin Concerto. A person of

tremendous faith, Jonathan would like to thank God for continuing to sustain his

dancing spirit and he would also like to thank his family for their unending love

and support. Jonathan danced the role of the Snow King in NVDC's 2022 production of The Nutcracker.
