Pro Arte Pre Professional students were very fortunate to have Beverley Bagg (ex-Principal PACT Ballet now Alberta Ballet – ballet mistress) and Stephanie Saland (ex-Principal New York City Ballet) for intensive coaching this summer.
These two wonderful talented woman shared their knowledge, experience and passion for ballet with our lucky aspiring students.
Students gained not only feedback on classical technique, but on self-care, motivation, work ethic and the joy of dance!
Pro Arte has a strong history with the Nutcracker in Vancouver. Three of our past students have played the role of Clara in previous productions with Ballet BC and Alberta Ballet: Raquel Lefebvre-Lanziner; Danielle Gould and Kara Chan.
Pro Arte Pre-Professional CBM Students and CatchingART have been invited to perform with the LIONS GATE Sinfonia at the Centennial Theatre on Saturday December 15th performing a “Nutcracker Suite”. CatchingART dancers will also be performing the premiere of a new Michael Conway Baker composition.
Pro Arte also proudly had 18 of their younger ballet students selected to perform with the Winnipeg Ballet’s Nutcracker production this December 14 – December 16 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre.
Many young dancers aspire to dance professionally. To achieve this level of dance requires a superb technique achieved with a nurtured training. Pro Arte’s specialized training programs are designed to support those who desire performance in their repertoire.
