2015 CatchingArt program

rantonic

There are few opportunities in Canada that allow young artists to aspire dancing as a professional

artist. Pro Arte’s CatchingART Contemporary Ballet Theatre aspirant “company experience” allows

a priceless professional learning opportunity and the development of resume performances,

confi dence and profi ciency through unique opportunities and company classes with guest

choreographers and teachers. The eight company members receive a training scholarship (funded

by the Platform Society) to complete their advanced training level. They are committed to a career

in dance and dedicate over 30 hours per week to the art. They have graced the international

stages and been awarded many scholarships and awards at NYCDA, YAGP and other international

competitions, as well as achieving high distinctions in Advanced 2 RAD and ISTD qualifi cations.

Their 2015-16 season also includes performing with Pandora’s Vox (December 4th and 5th),

the Lions Gate Sinfonia (December 19th), at the “Dance in Diplomacy Conference” in Missoula,

Montana (January), as well as many community and outreach projects and performances with

Education without Borders and other groups. The group is planning a trip to Europe this Spring to

further connections, take master classes and auditions.

These dancers are driven, determined & destined. They DARE to take the Stage! Enjoy!

ACT 2

Letter to the Universe

Music: Peter Gabriel; Voice Over: Ryan Marchant

Choreographer: Rachael Poirier (Vancouver)

As a single parent, presently with a 16 year old son, I’ve often watched fathers advising,

disciplining and mentoring their sons. My son has grown up with no father. I often wonder what

void he must feel or if he notices the other fathers coaching their sons, bringing them lunch at a

ball game, sitting down for a chat, walking through a mall shopping, on a vacation together, or

playing sports with one another.

The voice over in this routine was read to me by my mom. As she fi nished the fi nal lines, I had tears

running down my face. I told her someday I’d fi nd music to match this letter and choreograph a

dance to it. I’ve entitled the dance “Letter to the Universe.” It’s a request from all parents for the

world to be kind to our children as they grow up and leave home; for the universe to help guide

their decisions; to help them emotionally handle disappointment; to help them follow their dreams;

to become successful and happy; surround them with good associates and friends; to be able to live

in the present, but to also have the foresight to determine danger.; to fi nd true love. The idea that

one bad decision or good one can change their lives forever is both frightening and wonderful.

I have worked with kids and young adults for 25 years. I have seen so much through knowing

them--both great success and terrible tragedy. They will only know how much we love them when

they have children of their own. It truly takes an entire village to raise a child. I hope their dreams

come true; that they remember without failure there is no success. Work hard--everyone loves

a hard worker. Respect yourself and others. Have clear boundaries of what you will and won’t

tolerate. Never do drugs. Don’t lie to yourself or others. Live an honest life. Enjoy simple pleasures,

appreciate your life every day. See the beauty that surrounds you. Tell your family you love them

daily. Life is work. Enjoy being a good person. Love yourself. Love being you. Give back for there

are more rewards in giving than receiving.

I thank you for sharing your children with me. It was my pleasure to work with them. I hope you

enjoy a “Letter to the Universe”.

Pas de Quatre

Original Choreography: Jules Perrot

On the night it premiered in London, (12 July 1845) it caused a sensation with the critics and

the public alike. The reason for this was that it brought together, on one stage, the four greatest

ballerinas of the time — in order of appearance, Lucile Grahn, Carlotta Grisi, Fanny Cerrito, and

Marie Taglioni.

All of Me

“Magical child, wounded child and saboteur, facets of an individual, react in isolation like wild

unconscious atoms rendering our own actions a mystery to ourselves . . . when we fi nally see and

embrace all, the hard and the soft, the expansion and the contraction, then there is cohesion . . .

then there is power.’”

is working towards her Advanced 2 RAD and ISTD Modern exams, and is

hoping complete all of her RAD and ISTD exams by the time she graduates.

Her favorite things about dance include working with various teachers,

learning new techniques and always striving to improve. She hopes to have

a career that allows her to continue to learn, dance and travel.

Maia Jadue was born in London, England and has moved all over

the world. She has been dancing at Pro Arte since she was 11 and has

completed almost all of her ISTD ballet exams, three major ISTD modern

exams as well as her Intermediate, Advanced 1 and Advanced 2 RAD Ballet

qualifi cations (all with distinction). She is working towards her Advanced 2

ISTD. She likes to listen to music and spend time with her friends and family.

She is honoured to be part of CatchingART, fi rst as an understudy and now

as a member. She plans to audition for graduate dance programs in Europe and England.

Ethan Ponton is honoured to be performing with CatchingART. He

started out with a keen interest in tap and stage but has branched out and

explored many new styles. He is focused on ballet and contemporary after

achieving a distinction for both his Intermediate and Advanced 1 RAD ballet

exams. He is working towards his Advanced 2 and Solo Seal. Ethan often

goes to gymnastics clubs with his brother to work on the things he can’t in

the studio. He also likes to spend time swimming. Ethan aspires to travel to

Europe to attend a post-secondary dance institution and pursue a professional career in dance.

Savannah Stuible was taught a love of dance at an early age and is

now completing her formal training here at Pro Arte. She majors in classical

ballet but also takes tap and contemporary. Savannah has completed,

with high distinction, her Advanced 1 ISTD and her Advanced 2 RAD

Ballet examinations. She has focused on Summer Intensives at Pro Arte

Centre receiving valued instruction from many renowned teachers and

choreographers. Her goals include the ISTD Advanced 2 followed by the

RAD Solo Seal Award. Savannah hopes to see a future in a major professional ballet company.

Lauren Middlemass is excited to be a member of CatchingArt,

after a year as an understudy. Since she fi rst started at Pro Arte, she has

completed several exams and is working on her Advanced 2 RAD ballet

and hopes to complete her Advanced 2 ISTD Ballet and Modern next year.

Lauren was selected as an Intermediate Modern Provincial Representative

in 2015, was chosen “teen outstanding dancer runner-up”, and received a

“triple-threat award” at NYCDA in 2014 and 2015. She enjoys spending time

with her friends and family. She feels so honoured to part of a fantastic group of dancers.


Cassia Slager started as an understudy, and is excited to now be a

member of CatchingArt. She is working towards her Advanced 2 ISTD

Modern and Advanced 2 ISTD Ballet exams. Cassia was a BC Provincial

Representative for Ballet in 2012 and 2014, and received honorable mention

in 2015. She placed top 12 at YAGP in Seattle in 2013 and was invited

to attend summer school at the National Ballet in 2011. Thankful for the

opportunities provided for her, she aspires to join a Ballet Company, and use

the information and experience gathered from it to build a career in the sciences.

Iris Stewart-Bosch is proud to be a CatchingART member after

understudying last year. Born in Vancouver, she moved to Toronto to go the

National Ballet School in Grade 7. Last year she completed her Advanced 1

RAD and Intermediate ISTD Ballet and Modern Exams. She is preparing for

her Advanced 2 RAD exam and her Advanced 1 ISTD Ballet and Modern.

Her loves working with new choreographers because it allows her to

discover new forms of movement and learn more about the dance world. Iris

would love to have a job that allows her to dance and travel at the same time.

Sophie Derome started dancing when she was very young doing ballet

and tap, and loved it so much that shortly after she joined jazz, musical

theatre, lyrical, contemporary and hip hop. She joined Pro Arte Centre last

year, completing her Advanced 2 RAD and Intermediate ISTD Ballet and

Modern exams. Sophie is very excited for the season as there are so many

opportunities to perform and explore the art of dance. Last year, Sophie was

selected as an alternate for the BC Provincial Intermediate Modern category.
