Gaynor Girls are talented and dedicated pre-professional students who have been chosen by Gaynor Minden to be the company's Brand Ambassadors. From thousands of pre-professional ballerinas who have applied to receive this official status only twenty eight were selected to be the 2017/2018 Gaynor Girls. 


The world’s most beautiful Principal Dancers like Bolshoi Ballet’s Svetlana Zakharova and Evgeniya Obraztsova, Mariinsky Theater’s Ekaterina Kondaurova, and American Ballet Theater’s Gillian Murphy are all among Gaynor Minden’s professional level Brand Ambassadors.

IBT Faculty and all of Rory’s ballet school classmates recognize her as a really strong and focused dancer training with massive dedication and constantly working on her artistry.

Planning on becoming a professional ballerina, Rory is known for her natural ability to turn, especially excelling in double fouettés.
