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.

Ask la Cour is a principal dancer with New York City Ballet. Originally from Copenhagen, Denmark he studied at The Royal Danish Ballet School for 8 years until he became a member of the company at age 16. While there he performed many featured roles in the Bournonville repertoire and became proficient in the Bournonville technique. Other accomplishments at The Royal Danish Ballet were his portrayal of Lenski in John Cranko’s Onegin.

Following his desire to expand his artistic horizon, Ask came to NYC in the Fall of 2002 after an invitation from New York City Ballet’s Ballet Master in Chief, Peter Martins. He enjoyed learning the depths of Balanchine’s repertoire, his most favorite being the Neoclassical ballets, The Four Temperaments, Stravinsky Violin Concerto, Monumentum and Movements to more classical pieces including, Diamonds from Jewels, and Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 2. He also had the pleasure to work with choreographers including Christopher Wheeldon, Alexei Ratmansky, Benjamin Millepied and Lauren Lovette. His dance career has brought him around the globe where he has had the pleasure of performing in some of the biggest cultural institutions including, the Royal Opera House in London, Palais Garnier in Paris, and Mariinsky Theater in St. Petersburg to name a few.

When he is not working with the company, Ask enjoys pursuing choreographic projects, collaborating with various classical and contemporary artists and composers. Most recently he choreographed to Jane Antonia Cornish’s composition Into Silence. He has received several awards and grants, most recently in 2013 a grant from the Vibeke Roervig Foundation.

He feels driven to give back to artist and the community at large whenever possible, performing in numerous benefit events throughout his career and has co-produced a couple of them as well.
