Shelly Power, Academy Director commented, "This competition is different from others because students are seen not only on stage in their variation performances but also in daily classes in both ballet and contemporary. Coaching is another area the jury observes and evaluates how a student might grow as a professional. Joel did an amazing job as noted by the judges in all areas but especially in coaching as he demonstrated his ability to adapt to a variety of styles and repertoire which is imperative for a long and diverse career."

A native of Sydney, Australia, Mr. Woellner is studying full time at the Houston Ballet Academy in Houston, Texas U.S.A. and is member of Houston Ballet II. He received a full scholarship with Houston Ballet as a result of his participation in the Finals of Youth America Grand Prix, 2011 New York.
