Mark & Danielle Tucker - Eugene Ballet Principal Dancers



 

Mark Tucker



Mark Tucker is honored to be taking part in his sixteenth season with Eugene Ballet Company. Mark began his training in his home state of Hawaii with Ballet Hawaii.  As well as continuing his training in Miami, Houston, and Washington DC, Mark attended The North Carolina School of the Arts where he graduated high school and obtained a BFA in Classical Ballet with a minor in Modern Dance. Mark joined Eugene Ballet in 2008 and was promoted to Principal Dancer in 2015.  Mark has defined his career as a strong partner and has had the opportunity to dance an expanding range of roles with choreographers and directors both internationally and from across the country. 


 

Danielle Tucker



Danielle Tucker received her early training from Connecticut Dance School and attended the University of Utah where she graduated with a BFA in Ballet Performance and a BS in Business Management. She joined Eugene Ballet in 2008 as an Apprentice, was promoted to the Company in 2011, and Principal in 2015. Last season, Danielle had the privilege to help set ballets and work alongside the artistic staff and guest choreographers. Danielle is an instructor for Eugene Ballet Academy and also performs and teaches throughout the northwest.  Danielle is a proud mom to two sons, Luca and Theo, whom she shares with her husband and fellow principal dancer Mark Tucker.


 


In 2015 Mark starred alongside his wife Danielle. “Dancing the role of Don Jose across from my wife was one of the most memorable and powerful moments I have ever experienced on stage.” He then added “the only thing that may beat that is dancing Siegfried with Danielle while she was pregnant with our first son Luca. He was moving around like crazy during Black Swan.” 2022-2023 was a big year for Mark and Danielle, The Sleeping Beauty, as well as being a part of two world premieres, Petrushka and The Little Mermaid. They also welcomed their second son, Theo into the world. Follow them on Instagram @markdani8688
