Sasha de Sola recently had one of the greatest moments of her career with the San Francisco Ballet. During the second act of a performance on tour in London, SFB's Artistic Director, Heigl Tomasson, took the microphone to announce De Sola's promotion to Soloist! Sasha de Sola, who trained first at Southern Ballet Theater under direction of Vasile Petrutiu and then later at Central Florida Ballet, was featured as Maria in CFB's first and second Nutcracker productions in 2001 and 2002. She later trained at the Kirov Academy of Ballet in Washington, D.C. for two years. Upon graduating she became an apprentice with the San Francisco Ballet.  

Dance Review: "These dancers are, quite simply, a joy to watch. The most Mozartian performance in the Balanchine is that of Sasha De Sola, who dances as if dispensing fragments of some sublime, heart-locked secret." - The Guardian UK, September 2012
