Simeon Saub began her ballet training at Mary Lorraine's Dance Center when she was 14 and finished training at the Omaha Academy of Ballet. She later graduated from the University of Alabama Summa Cum Laude with University Honors, obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in both Dance and French with a minor in English.
Simeon spent her time at the University performing in works created by Rita Snyder, Qianping Guo, and Dr. Fen Kennedy, as well as staged productions by James Jordan and Lauren Giordano-Whittington.
Simeon's most notable role was Aurora in Rita Snyder's staging of Sleeping Beauty's Act 2 Vision Scene.
The 2022-2023 season will be Simeon's first season with Pensacola Ballet, and she is excited to kick off her professional career!
“Even though every day can feel like a challenge in many ways, I dance to overcome these challenges. I dance to prove to myself and to anyone watching that I do what I love and what I am passionate about. Every day I work I am determined to improve on even the smallest of things. I love on those rare occasions when I dance by myself on stage, when the lights and audience fade away, and I feel as though it is just me dancing, married with the music.”

What Would You Like the Audience/Community to Gain from Your Performance: I would like my audience/community to know that it is never too late to learn ballet or to make a career out of it!
