The dancers from YOU dance worked with the full company for the first time in the world premiere of Romeo and Juliet in November. December brings The Nutcracker to the stage with over 70 dancers and the apprentices will perform as the snowflakes and waiters. In the new year YOU dance will bring more workshops to students in the GTA, and again perform at the Betty Oliphant Theatre. Have a wonderful holiday season.
YOU dance dancer Gabriele Frola talks about the training involved in becoming a professional dancer.

Students and teachers can send questions to any of our YOU dance performers to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your question may be featured in one of our upcoming newsletters.
Many students ask about the music in the Bollywood dance they learned at the YOU dance workshops. The music is by an artist called Bobby Slack Jr. and the album is Independent Minds. If ever you are feeling chilly this winter turn on the music and have fun getting warm to your version of Bollywood Spectacular.
