YOU dance visits Sault Ste. Marie
At the beginning of October, YOU dance travelled to Sault Ste. Marie to participate in the Algoma Fall Festival. YOU dance presented three performances for elementary schools, one public performance and one master ballet class for the community. Our educators held 32 workshops in schools and a choreographic residency which culminated in the wonderful dance piece being presented at the public performance. Our hosts were most accommodating and the audience response enthusiastic as they watched and became involved in the dances on the stage.
“Our 2 classes (4/5 and 5/6) loved the YOU dance workshop. The teachers loved it and the students were really engaged. She got grade 6 boys doing Swan Lake and they did not even realize it!!!!” Connie Traves, Principal, H.M.Robbins Public School, Sault Ste. Marie.

We asked Jack Bertinshaw: What it is like rehearsing with the big company after his experience with the ten dancers of YOU dance?
Having lived in Australia, Japan and Switzerland, I love exploring new cities and immersing myself into the culture of a new country. The people of Toronto are so welcoming and that has made my move here so much easier – it is a very beautiful city.
I am honoured to be a part of The National Ballet of Canada. Taking class with the company and rehearsing the repertoire is inspiring. I enjoy working alongside some of the most talented dancers in the world.
