Delphine Chang graduated from the University of Arizona summa cum laude, Outstanding Senior for the College of Fine Arts, with a B.F.A in Dance alongside a minor in Arts Management. Her love of dance ignited as she entered the world of traditional Chinese and Indian dance in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Eventually that translated into a passion for Ballet, Contemporary, Modern, and Jazz after moving to Portland, Oregon. She grew up dancing at The Portland Ballet as well as a performing arts high school. She continued her training into college with a triple track program while attending national summer workshops.
In addition to faculty works at the University of Arizona, she has had the privilege to perform masterworks from Balanchine, Jessica Lang, Christopher Wheeldon, and Nacho Duato Ballets, to Modern and Jazz pieces by Larry Keigwin, Samuel Watson, and Amy Ernst. Delphine was also involved in various aspects of the College of Fine Arts at UA and led their ambassador program, worked closely with the recruitment team, and worked with local Tucson nonprofit arts organizations.
Delphine has always had an inclination towards all facets of the arts. She has directed and taught at BodyVox Kids Dance Camp, teaches at various studios in the Columbia area, and also has assisted in Barre Burn, Tabata, and other fitness class formats. She also co-founded a small visual arts company, models, and engages with other artistic endeavors through philanthropic and social event programming. She is so excited to be a part of Missouri Contemporary Ballet for her first season!
