The RWB School Aspirants have just finished their end of year performance of On The Edge. The Aspirant Program is a full-time, intensive, post-secondary training program designed for advanced level classical ballet dancers who are making the transition from student to professional dancer. We thought it a nice finale to let you know what our Aspirants will be doing over the summer and into the new 2013-14 season.
Manami Tsubai, Katie Bonnell, Kylie Duggan and Ryan Vetter had an exciting year performing with the RWB Company in The Sleeping Beauty and Moulin Rouge® – The Ballet. The four received the amazing news that they would be joining the RWB Company as Apprentices for the 2013-14 year! They will also be heading to Banff later this summer to participate in the Professional Summer Dance Program at the Banff Centre.
Victoria Clerico and Lydia Redpath are auditioning and exploring other opportunities outside the RWB School. We wish these beautiful girls all the best and we’ll miss them on stage!
Dae Hee Lee, Jaimi Deleau, Jared Ebell and Charlie Riddiford are returning for the 2013-14 season as Aspirants. We can’t wait to see these talented dancers back!
Jera Wolfe is auditioning for different programs and is participating in The Indigenous Dance Residency in Banff this summer. Being the talented dancer and choreographer he is, we know he will do well wherever he lands.
Philippe Alexandre Jacques is heading to The Nederlands Dans Theater Summer Intensive and returning for Summer School with the RWB School. In September he will be exploring many interesting opportunities with the RWB School. We wish him luck in his journeys and look forward to seeing him back in the fall!
Zach Rogers will be with the RWB School over the summer before travelling to Stuttgart, Germany to attend the John Cranko School in the fall. We wish Zach all the best and will miss his presence on and off stage.
