FROM OUR ARTISTIC DIRECTOR:
 
We have begun a new year of our Professional Training Program, welcoming a wonderful incoming class of enthusiastic first year dancers, and looking back with pride at the accomplishments of our recent graduates.

Our stellar faculty are now enjoying working with returning students, as well as the new group of first year dancers who come to us from far and wide – across Canada, and from Israel, Japan, Mexico, and the U.S.A;  they were welcomed in with orientation activities organized for them by our energetic third year dancers.


Our faculty profile in this issue celebrates our gifted core faculty member and Resident Choreographer Julia Sasso, who has been busy with varied and exciting projects over the summer.

Also in this issue, we highlight our talented third year student, Yiming Cai, who was awarded our Kathryn Ash Scholarship last spring, and who spent part of his summer in Montreal, at the exciting Springboard Danse workshop.

I hope you enjoy reading about these exceptional individuals, and wish you all a wonderful and productive fall.

  FACULTY SPOTLIGHT: JULIA SASSO
The School's core faculty member and Resident Choreographer Julia Sasso had a very active summer, performing, mentoring, teaching, and rehearsing. In June, she was thrilled to appear with Danny Grossman in his “swan song” celebratory performance, Labour of Love (Its Innate Proclivities and Myriad Variations).

This fall, Julia is back to teaching at the School and York University, as well as getting ready to perform in Allison Cummings’ Exhale, set to premiere at Dancemakers from October 17 - 20, 2018.

  STUDENT PROFILE: YIMING CAI
Our students have different paths that lead them to dance. Third year student Yiming Cai, from Singapore, started his movement training competing in the ancient art of Wushu. He continued dancing at the Nanyang Technological University, where he graduated with a degree in Communication Studies, and was President of the NTU contemporary dance club.

An exceptional student, Yiming is the co-winner of the Kathryn Ash Scholarship, and is actively involved in all aspects of School life.
