Is Colleen Reed Of 'Love Is Blind' Really A Ballerina? Here's The Truth About Her Career

Devoted fans have pointed out Colleen Reed's LinkedIn title isn't "ballet dancer." So, what's going on?

By Becca van Sambeck

Season 3 of the Netflix hit dating series "Love Is Blind" has already introduced us to a wide range of characters, all looking for love in an incredibly unique way. But we've already seen some deception occur in the pod — contestant Andrew Liu, for example, puts eye drops in during an on-camera confessional so he'll look like he's crying after Nancy Rodriguez rejected his marriage proposal. Could other people be lying about who they are?

One topic that popped up repeatedly in the first few episodes was Colleen Reed's profession. After all, one of the first things she says on camera is that she doesn't want people to stereotype her because she's a ballet dancer and she has concerns about revealing what she does. Viewers then watched as she told multiple people in the pods about her profession.

“I’m a ballet dancer so I’m very flexible and limber,” she told one contestant.

However, some fans have pointed out that "ballet dancer" is not Colleen's title on LinkedIn. Instead, she describes herself as a "Senior Digital PR Strategist."

"Public Relations and Marketing professional with 2+ plus years of experience in social media management, branding, and content marketing. Possess a B.A. in Public Relations and B.F.A. in Ballet Performance. Excellent communication, project management, and organization skills while instituting creativity. Experience in developing strategies in order for strong brand presence," her "About" section reads.

Her profile also notes she's worked for almost three years for Fractl, a company that says it's an "Organic SEO Growth Marketing Agency."

But despite her work in PR, Colleen is indeed an actual ballerina. Like many people these days, she has multiple gigs!

Colleen is a company dancer for Ballet North Texas. She started ballet when she was a child, doing summer intensives with The Rock School in Philadelphia, Boston Ballet, Orlando Ballet, Carolina Ballet, and Nashville Ballet, according to her profile on Ballet North Texas' website. She even studied ballet during her university years, obtaining a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Ballet Performance — as well as a Bachelor of Arts in Public Relations — at University of Oklahoma. Now, she has multiple seasons of professional dancing with Ballet North Texas under her belt, dancing in iconic performances such as "The Nutcracker" and "Sleeping Beauty."

So, there you have it. Colleen is indeed a professional ballet dancer. We'll have to keep watching to see if she shows off any moves in upcoming episodes!
