The RWB School Audition Tour will wrap up this Sunday in Winnipeg. It is the last chance for talented young dancers to try out for a coveted spot at the RWB School Summer Session. Level 7 Professional Division students Kylie Duggan and Filip Kurlowicz both know what it takes to make it in the Professional Division of the RWB School and they took some time out of their busy schedule to share some of their experience and wisdom with the hopefuls.
This video with Kylie and Filip also includes footage of them dancing the Grand Pas de Deux from The Sleeping Beauty, sheds some light on what it’s really like to live and dance at the RWB.
RWB Alumni Victor Duret with Jo-Ann Sundermeier, Harrison James, Amanda Green, Dmitri Dovgoselets & Tara Birtwhistle
RWB Alumni Victor Duret was with The RWB Company in 1953 when it received its Royal Charter. Mr. Duret joined the current company to watch a rehearsal of Moulin Rouge at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa while visiting family. He also sat down with Artistic Director, André Lewis to reminisce about ballets of Mr. Duret's era. RWB is pleased to have had Mr. Duret as a guest during the tour.
