Adrienne Duckett completed her early dance studies under the direction of Holly Mora at the Capital Area Dance Theater in Pennsylvania. She spent many summers studying intensively at the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, Allegheny Ballet Company and the Governors School for the Arts. Her desire to teach ballet started at a young age; she began teaching dance at the age of 16. Duckett continued her dance training at Towson University and graduated with a BFA in Dance Performance Education while continuing to teach in Pennsylvania and joining the adjunct faculty of Peabody Dance. Upon graduation, she joined the full-time faculty of Glen Burnie High School, teaching Dance and Health Education classes, and continued to teach for Peabody Dance. Upon the birth of her son,  Duckett took a hiatus from teaching; subsequently, she taught for Urbana Dance and Howard Community College. She spent several years on the faculty of Mount Airy Performing Arts Center and the YMCA before returning teach for Peabody Dance in the fall of 2014. Duckett is very happy to be “back home” at Peabody!
