We are excited to introduce Hammock Bay homeowners Aubrey and fiancé Miles, along with Lily and Mango, their darling black cats. Aubrey, spends most of her time in New York City as a professional ballet dancer in the hit musical The Phantom of the Opera on Broadway. With Aubrey performing 8 shows a week, Miles is working on his Masters degree in Social Work.
Aubrey began ballet at the age of 3 and received a full time contract with The New York City Ballet as a member of the Corps de Ballet at the age of sixteen, starting her career as a professional dancer. Throughout her career, she has danced with The New York City Ballet, Los Angeles Ballet and New Orleans Ballet Theatre, as well as dancing and acting in several TV shows.
Aubrey grew up vacationing in Destin with her family. She recalls her mom and sister always wanting to live closer to the Emerald Coast and in 2013, that dream became a reality when they purchased their home in Gardens and moved from the vibrant New Orleans. With a busy life in NYC, Aubrey would spend her vacation days visiting her family in Hammock Bay. She enjoyed her vacations so much that she decided to eventually live where she had been vacationing over the years. Aubrey closed on her home in Whispers last year and comes home to Hammock Bay whenever she gets a break from performing. “I absolutely love my new house and every time I visit, it is like therapy for my mind, body and soul! Between the hot pink sunsets, teal, clear waters and all the nature and outdoor activities close by, Hammock Bay feels like recovery from turbulent city life to me!”
When the time comes to retire from Broadway, Aubrey and Miles look forward to moving to Hammock Bay full time. Planning for the future, Aubrey would like to teach ballet to students of all ages and offer private coaching as well. In addition to teaching ballet, she would love to start a Ballet Fitness class in Freeport for those interested in a basic dance inspired workout. Miles is excited to use his MSW degree and work in the field of mental health counseling for veterans, specializing in addiction recovery. He is also an accomplished personal trainer and is excited to see what opportunities the Florida panhandle have to offer!
There are many reasons why Hammock Bay is a desirable place to live. The amenities appeal to young families as well as retirees, and its proximity to Eglin Air Force Base, major airports and the beautiful beaches of the gulf coast satisfy a wide range of needs and wants. Welcome to Hammock Bay Aubrey and Miles!
