Say hello to this year's Nutcracker Prince! We're so pleased to welcome Cole Vernon to the 2018 Nolte Nutcracker.
Cole, originally from Sonoma County, California, has had the pleasure of performing internationally as well as throughout the U.S. with companies such as DanceWorks Chicago, River North Dance Chicago, Ballet Hispanico in New York City and now Visceral Dance Chicago.
Cole received his BFA in Dance from the University of Arizona in 2013, having worked with the University’s incredible faculty members as well as inspiring artists from the Balanchine Trust, Larry Keigwin + Company, Ann Reinking and Gary Chryst, among others. After graduating summa cum laude and participating in Springboard Danse Montreal, he made Chicago his home base. While continuing his performance career, he also enjoys providing dance education as well as choreography for the artists of the future.
