HUGE CONGRATS to former PCDA dance/co-op student, and eternal Felicita member, Jane Alison McKinney. We've heard through the grapevine that Jane Alisopn was hired with a dance company in Italy - as soon as Jane Alison give us some details you'll read them here!
AND HERE'S THE UPDATE...
I was perusing your fancy new website this evening and I saw that news spreads like wild fire. I do indeed have some exciting things coming up in the future! It is called the Arsenale della danza and it takes place in Venice... They basically pick 25 young emerging contemporary dancers and we do cycles of master classes and performances every two weeks. In the end there is a creation with the director and we tour it around Italy and possibly internationally as well. I'm pretty overwhelmed and excited about the whole thing.
I miss you very much. The festival has been going really well and I've seen and done lots of cool things. I hope that plans for the show are going well, I'm sure it will be a great show as always.
To PCDA student, Monet Comeau, for surviving the month of July at The National Ballet School - good job, we're very proud!
To former student, Liam Caines, on his very successful residency. The positive feedback from students and audience has been tremendous.
To former student, Seth Buckley, for being re-accepted, again, to The Royal Winnipeg Ballet School, and for being the 2011 recipient of the Sheila Ross Memorial Scholarhsip.
