Dancer of the Month – March 2018

San Jose Dance Theatre ballet student of the month: Noah Tsuruta

Noah is 15 years old and currently a freshman at Los Gatos High School. He enjoys school, and his favorite classes include Algebra 2 Accelerated and Japanese 3 Honors. While speaking Japanese is not too difficult for him, some Japanese culture is new to him since he has grown up in the US.

Besides school, Noah enjoys playing piano and he is now practicing Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata for piano. Noah has taken ballet for years and dances five days a week. Learning from his great teachers at San Jose Dance Theatre and dancing with his friends are important parts of his life.

Noah recently finished his first ballet competition at the Youth American Grand Prix (YAGP), where he performed very well and is already talking about competing at YAGP next year!
