Ballet for Life: 30 & Beyond


I was born in Omaha, Nebraska and at the age of five and began taking ballet lessons at the Cora Quick Ballet Studio.  I continued dancing through my twenties, and although I added jazz and tap dance along the way, ballet became my main focus.  After graduating from the University of Colorado, I worked as a paralegal and then pursued a degree in law. I earned my J.D. in Law from the University of Denver in 1991 and practiced real estate and transactional law for a private firm in Denver for several years.

I am married and have two children, ages 18 and 14.  After taking time off to raise my children and volunteer in their schools, I returned to ballet four years ago and have been studying under the instruction of Barbara Owen at Maryland Hall. I am currently a member of the 40 – 60 plus Adult Ballet Teaching Staff and am honing my teaching skills under the guidance of Barbara Owen and Sheila Savannah.

Local artist Jin Lee has installed a test run of the work she will be installing for her
January-February 2013 exhibit on the front lawn of Maryland Hall.



A brief statement from Jin Lee about her work:

Cloud Passage was inspired by the packing material used for my move from the west coast to the east coast. The final form will be a representation of my personal journey, of the transitions I experienced when I moved to San Francisco and back to Annapolis. The trees, symbols of the two communities, are linked by a web to express my connection to both coasts.

The desire to use this material birthed the concept behind the classes I proposed to Maryland Hall; to teach my students how to make site-specific art with re-purposed materials. Cloud Passage is constructed entirely with materials and methods easily obtained and learned by students enrolled in my class.

The current installation is a test to understand how the material will behave in the environment and hold up to the elements. A more complete sculpture is scheduled to be installed in January of 2013.
