Hailing from The Royal Ballet company, Leticia Stock has earned an impressive resume by dancing in classics like “The Nutcracker”, “Sleeping Beauty”, “Giselle”, as well as, a host of others in picturesque Europe. Accomplished choreographers Wayne McGregor, Christopher Wheeldon, Liam Scarlett, and Twyla Tharp are just some of the big names Leticia has worked with.
Recently, BTSCelebs was given the opportunity to ask the new Joffrey Ballet dancer several questions to learn a little more about this rising talent.
BTSCelebs: Describe yourself in a few sentences.
Leticia Stock: I’m a very easy going person and like to enjoy my time on and off stage. I’m very driven and perfectionist, which sometimes it’s a good thing and sometimes makes everything more difficult.
How did you get interested in ballet?
I started very young watching my sister dance. I just wanted to be like her.
Why did you choose to be a part of The Joffrey Ballet?
I think the Joffrey Ballet has great repertoire and great opportunities to dance amazing roles. Also, Chicago is a great city to live in.
Tell us about one unforgettable experience you’ve had in Chicago since you’ve joined Joffrey.
I’ve just moved two months ago so I’m still making memories and finding out great places in Chicago.
If you had the chance to choreograph one Broadway show, what show would it be? Why would you choose this particular production?
Chicago :). I just love the songs.
Which show from Joffrey’s upcoming season are you looking forward to the most?
Our triple bill “Across the Pond.” I can’t wait to dance another piece by Liam Scarlett.
Many people are excited for the new season. Please give us one word you think best describes The Joffrey Ballet’s 2018-2019 season.
