BIO: Born in Paris France, Indiana Woodward‘s earliest memories are of watching ballet class and being backstage in the theater. After moving to Los Angeles, Indiana began training with Yuri Grigoriev and it was from that moment that she knew that this was going to be her lifelong passion and career.

Indiana began studying at the School of American Ballet in the summer of 2010 and joined the school as a full time student in the fall of 2010. In August 2012 Ms. Woodward became an apprentice with New York City Ballet and a full member of the company in December of the same year. Indiana was promoted to soloist in February 2017.

Ms. Woodward is a recipient of the 2016 Lincoln Center Emerging Artist Award and 2016 Clive Barnes Foundation Award. In 2010, she won first place in the Bolshoi Ballet Academy Summer Intensive in New York City and was invited to perform at the Bolshoi Ballet Academy gala in Moscow.
