Benjamin R. Olson Bio

Ben Olson

Benjamin Olson is from Hudson, Wisconsin. After years of studying piano, he began dancing at age twelve, due to a desire to “get up and move rather than being glued to a bench.” He began his training at Larkin Dance Studio and Classical Ballet Academy. In 2010, he became a company member of Ballet Minnesota.

Benjamin joined Continental Ballet Company in spring of 2014. His performance highlights include the Nutcracker and Cavalier in The Nutcracker, Puss In Boots in Sleeping Beauty, and the Prince in Cinderella, and his favorite ballet is Cinderella.

In his spare time, he enjoys being with Ruby, his pet Chihuahua/Pomeranian mix.
