Andrea Cook, currently the academy administrator at the Fairfax Academy for Communications and the Arts, has been appointed artistic director of the Fairfax Ballet Company.
Cook is Fairfax County native and Chantilly High School alumna. She earned a bachelor of fine arts degree in dance performance at Point Park University, then moved to New York City to pursue performance and teaching opportunities.
“Having worked with the dancers of the Fairfax Ballet Company for the past decade, I am excited to be taking on a new role that will allow me to continue to stretch myself and the dancers artistically,” Cook said. “I am thrilled to be part of a program that creates a wonderful environment for dancers to learn, grow and discover who they are as artists and human beings.”
