As we look forward to the next month, we are preparing for our Adult student performance, Steppin’ Out as well as Cecchetti Ballet exams. IDance is taking place at the beginning of the month and Festival choreography is well underway.
We would also like to take this opportunity to formally welcome Rachel Cooper to the RWB School. Rachel Cooper has taken over Laurie Alston’s classes and choreography for the remainder of the year. Ms Cooper is not only an RD alumni, she is also a graduate of the Senior Professional Program at the School of Contemporary Dancers. She has a BA in dance as well as a Bachelor of Education from the University of Winnipeg. She is also the director of the dance program at Maples Collegiate.
Rachel Cooper has taught at various studios within the city of Winnipeg and has entered many pieces of choreography in the Manitoba Dance Festival. Her pieces have been awarded the Adjudicator’s Choice Award in hip hop, jazz and lyrical jazz. Please feel free to view her biography in the atrium or online. We hope that everyone will make Ms Cooper feel welcome again after so many years away.
