TREVOR WILLIAMS

Paducah, KY

Trevor began his training at the age of 15 in his hometown of Paducah, Kentucky, before moving at the age of 17 to Louisville, Kentucky, joining Louisville Ballet's Studio Company.

After graduating from his training, he accepted a company contract at Louisville Ballet for two more seasons, where he danced originated works by Andrea Schermoly, Adam Hougland, and danced works by Val Caniparoli, Ronald Hynd, and more. In addition, Trevor toured to London with a project piece, "The Great Bear", created by Andrea Schermoly, before beginning a freelance career that would take him to San Fransisco, dancing with Ballet22 as a seasonal guest artist.

Looking to settle back into company life after a period of freelance work, Trevor joined Ballet Pensacola as a Leading Artist at the end of the 2024 season, dancing in their final production of the season, "The Sleeping Beauty".

Excited to return for the 2024-25 season, Trevor is grateful for the opportunity to grow and promote this art form to the audiences of Pensacola and beyond.

A short paragraph why you dance / what you feel when you dance:

“I dance to express what can’t be said in words all the time, and to release any negative thoughts or emotions present. You can always find me hidden away in an empty studio with the lights dim and lofi playing, jamming out.”

What would you like your audience/community to gain from your performances:

I’ve always said that I hope the audience goes home with something to think about, whether it be that nostalgic holiday feeling after The Nutcracker, or witnessing a piece of choreography that then invites your own thought and interpretation of the piece or story. That’s why I’m particularly a fan of pieces that leave a bit to the imagination in how it can be interpreted, because I quite like when dance creates a conversation, that’s the purpose of art!
