Susan Williams


Susan fostered her love of dance at Deena Shroyer’s School of Dance in Leavenworth Kansas until the age of 16 when she decided to pursue dance at a professional level and began training at Kansas School of Classical Ballet under the instruction of Juan Pablo Trujillo, Aisling Hill Connor, and Amaya Rodriguez. She attended many summer intensives including Webster University, Oklahoma City Ballet, and Fort Wayne Ballet. Susan began her career at Fort Wayne Ballet where she danced for two seasons. While with Fort Wayne Ballet Susan performed in many productions including Cinderella, Phantom of the Opera, Midsummer Night’s Dream, and of course the cherished tradition of The Nutcracker. Susan currently dances with Kansas City Dance Collective and has performed in notable roles such as the Corpse bride in “House Haunters”, the Prima ballerina in “Malice and Masquerade”, and in Suzanne Ryan Strati’s “Hello”. In 2022 Susan also had the opportunity to perform with New York State Ballet as a soloist in their production of Nutcracker.
