Kelly Craig

Director of Development

Kelly Craig’s love of dance began when she was two years old, while watching her older sister take classes and perform. She began studying numerous different forms of dance under the direction of former Rockette, Linda Jandoli, and continued her education throughout college. Kelly is a graduate of Monmouth University, where she earned her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science with minors in English and Gender Studies.  While at Monmouth University, Kelly was a student leader, serving as the President of the student body and earning Monmouth University its first tournament win at a national Policy Debate competition. After graduating Summa Cum Laude from her undergraduate degree, Kelly attended Savannah College of Art and Design on a full-tuition scholarship as the Liberal Arts Dean’s Fellow and received her Master of Arts in Arts Administration.  Kelly has worked in non-profits for over ten years, with a background in higher education and performing arts.  Most recently, Kelly served as the Corporate Sponsorship and Advertising Manager at the Bergen Performing Arts Center, overseeing all Corporate and Foundation giving.  Kelly is a true advocate of the arts and is excited to work with the incredible team at the American Repertory Ballet to bring the joy, beauty, artistry and disciple of classical and contemporary dance to New Jersey and beyond.
