June 4th-8th, 2018
I spent one week traveling to Brandon to teach the highly talented artist of Brandon Ballet. They were a delightful group of kids to work with and I left them feeling completely fulfilled. We spent a week together developing ourselves as individuals and creative artist. Majority of the dancers in the intensive had never taken contemporary or jazz technique, making my classes very challenging but exciting to the students. By the end of the week the kids were moving fearlessly and really attacking the combinations. They had developed a new sense of movement quality and developed new skills that allowed them to become more grounded. I taught them an endless amount of choreography and by the end of the week each level had their own piece. These pieces were showcased at their end of the year performance at the end of June.
I truly enjoyed my time at Brandon Ballet and I cannot wait to return and work with the kids again. Their fight and determination inspired everyone. IMG_3215.TRIM
