Vashti Walters began her dance training at the age of 13 at a recreation center in Richardson, Texas. A few months later, she began training seriously at Tuzer Ballet with Tanju and Pat Tuzer, former dancers of the Harkness Ballet, where she received many opportunities, including performing in the Nutcracker. She was also selected to perform in a Turkish folk-dancing group called Rakkas Dance led by Onur Kasaburi.
In 2016, she moved to Florida and joined Tampa Ballet Theatre as a trainee. She spent the 2017-2018 season as an apprentice, and is now promoted to company. Vashti has enjoyed performing roles in The Nutcracker, Dracula, Beauty and the Beast, and Sleeping Beauty. She attended Ballet Magnificat's 2015 summer intensive, as well as Tampa Ballet Theatre's 2017 summer intensive and has auditioned and been accepted into the Kirov Academy of Ballet and Ballet Austin's summer intensive programs.
Vashti loves teaching ballet, and enjoys working with many different ages and skill levels.
