Kaitlyn Wassler

Kaitlyn Wassler is 11 years old and has lived in Yorkville, IL her entire life.  She started dance before the age of two and has found a passion and love for ballet at Your  Performing Arts Center (YPAC).  Over the last three years at YPAC, she has trained in ballet,  pointe, jazz, lyrical, tap, contemporary and hip hop, where she has been given the opportunity to learn from some of the best instructors!  She is also a member of the ID Company at YPAC, where she has competed in contemporary, jazz, lyrical and tap. Most recently, Kaitlyn performed in the role of Winter Fairy in YPAC’s original full length ballet, Enchanted Forest.  She performed as Fleur de farine (Flowing, Wheat flour) in YPAC’s 2016 Sleeping Beauty ballet production. Additionally, Kaitlyn has received multiple scholarships at YPAC’s Ballet Experience intensives.  She is a hard-working, determined, focused young girl, and when not dancing she enjoys acting like a 6th grader and spending time with friends.  She is so excited and humbled for the opportunity to be a part of the Divergent Ballet Company.
