Macy Almendariz was born in Sacramento, California. Her love and study of ballet began early, under Barbara Crockett, Allyson Deane, Jorge Esquivel, and others at Deane Dance Center. After graduating high school, Macy danced with the Sacramento Ballet under Ron Cunningham and Carinne Binda, and then under Amy Seiwart. Macy’s favorite memories include dancing in Balanchine’s Serenade, Four Temperaments, Donizetti, and Ron Cunningham’s Nutcracker, Peter Pan, and Carmina Burana. She is grateful and excited for the new adventure she is starting with Peninsula Ballet Theatre.
