From our Artistic Director

As I write, we are in the middle of another Summer School, with a tremendous new group of students working each day with wonderful energy and enthusiasm.  We have just finished our final audition for September’s incoming first year class, and we are all eager to begin working with them, as well as with our returning students.

We are greatly looking forward to hosting the choreographers who are lined up to create works for us, starting in the fall. We have a brilliant group of highly gifted artists preparing to choreograph with our PTP dancers, and they include: Kate Alton (our 2013 Kathryn Ash Choreographic Award winner), Nova Bhattacharya, Marc Boivin, Jennifer Dallas, Danny Grossman, Christopher House, Louis Laberge-Côté, Sharon B. Moore, Tedd Robinson, Julia Sasso, and Darryl Tracy. And that doesn’t include the special guests who will be creating and re-creating wonderful chamber dances for ACCELERATION 2014, our third year concert in March.  We’ll let you know about them in our next E-newsletter!
Wishing you all an excellent and rejuvenating summer,

Patricia Fraser
Artistic Director
