One defining moment...
Having the privilege of sharing the stage at the "Festival de Danza" gala in Veracruz, Mexico with my long time idol and role model Vladimir Malakhov.

Originally from Marietta, Georgia, Dylan Lackey began dancing at the Tolbert Yilmaz School of Dance/Roswell Dance Theatre.  He continued his training at the HARID Conservatory in Boca Raton, Florida on full scholarship. While at HARID, Dylan was awarded the Ruth Nelson Kraft Foundation Award, Rueger Family Scholarship, and the Dance Study Award for Ballet and Modern. Dylan was a member of Houston Ballet II from 2010 – 2012. He joined Houston Ballet as an apprentice in 2012. 

Since joining the company, Dylan has had the privilege of performing a variety of roles, from a variety of the world’s leading choreographers. He has been honored to dance in Stanton Welch’s Madame Butterfly, Divergence, Cinderella, La Bayadère (performers/groomsmen variations), Marie, Brigade, Bolero, Play, Swan Lake, Velocity (2nd pas deux), Tapestry (pas de seis, pas de deux), and the World Premieres of Paquita (pas de trois), The Rite of Spring, The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra (Horns), Romeo and Juliet (Uncle Capulet), and Zodiac (Aries, Cancer God). Other works Dylan has enjoyed performing in are Ben Stevenson’s The Sleeping Beauty and Nutcracker (Arabian, Lead Flower, Spanish, Harlequin, Mother Ginger, Rat King, Nutcracker); Twyla Tharp’s The Brahms-Haydn Variations; David Bintley’s Aladdin (Gold and Silver pas); George Balanchine’s Ballet Imperial and Theme and Variations; Trey McIntyre’s Peter Pan (Red skinned Indian, Pirate); Jiri Kylian’s Sechs Tänze; Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s Manon; Harald Lander’s Etudes; Ronald Hynd’s The Merry Widow; John Cranko’s The Taming of the Shrew (pas de seis); and John Neumeier’s A Midsummer’s Night Dream (Snout).

Dylan has toured and performed in many major cities of the U.S. and in places all over the world, such as Guatemala, Mexico, Canada, and Germany.
