Benjamin Miller is excited to be dancing with The Tallahassee Ballet for his first season. He began his classical ballet training at Pas de Vie ballet in 2016 under Artistic Director Natalia Botha and Ballet Master Charles Hagan. With the company, Miller was given many opportunities to dance classical roles ranging from Cavalier, Snow King, and Lead Russian in The Nutcracker, the Le Corsaire Pas de Deux, Don Quixote Pas de Duex, Pas de Trois Swan Lake, and several neoclassical pieces such as Simian Line, Tango, and Elemental Rhythm.
Outside of town, Miller trained at the prestigious Bolshoi Ballet Summer Intensive in New York City under the instruction of Mikhail Sharkov and Georgii Gusev. In 2019, Miller went to study at the Houston Ballet Academy under the instruction of many teachers, including Melissa Bowman and Claudio Muñoz, before returning to Pas de Vie as a principal dancer in 2020.
Miller has been a guest artist for various productions in Georgia and Alabama including in Ballet Theatre South’s production of The Nutcracker, Ballet Dance South’s production of Aladdin, and SEDAC’s production of The Nutcracker.
When not dancing, Miller is a theatre student at Florida State University, where he is currently working towards his Bachelor’s Degree, emphasis in performance. He was most recently seen on stage in the Tallahassee Community College musical production of Something Rotten in 2022.
