Lizzie Tripp-Molina trained at Milwaukee Ballet School & Academy and attended summer intensives at American Ballet Theatre and Houston Ballet. As a student, Lizzie performed lead roles in many ballets choreographed by Rolando Yanes and danced alongside Milwaukee Ballet’s corps in Michael Pink’s Swan Lake.
She joined Milwaukee Ballet II in 2014, where she danced in Pink’s Don Quixote, The Nutcracker, Cinderella, and Dracula, and performed in contemporary works by Timothy O’Donnell, Nadia Thompson, Lee-Wei Chao, Ilya Kozadayev, and Petr Zahradnícek.
After being promoted to the Company, Tripp-Molina danced as the Snow Queen in The Nutcracker, originated the role of the Enchantress in the world premiere of Pink’s Beauty and the Beast, and
performed the title role in Nicole Teague-Howell's The Firebird. She has also been featured in numerous
contemporary works, most notably by Timothy O’Donnell, Price Suddarth, Enrico Morelli, Aleix Mañé, Dani Rowe, and Cass Mortimer Eipper. In 2020, Tripp-Molina was chosen
for Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch.” Recently, Tripp-Molina has been featured in several of Pink’s ballets, including as Odette in Swan Lake, Fleur de Lis in Hunchback of Notre Dame, and Wendy
Darling in Peter Pan.
