FVAD students perform with National Ballet of Canada

October 15, 2018

FVAD alumnae, Anna, will perform the role of Marie (Clara) in the National Ballet of Canada’s Nutcracker 2018.

Anna trained in the Pre-Professional Academy, the half-day program at FVAD under the direction of Mr. John Carney until 2018 when she was accepted into the professional division at Canada’s National Ballet School (NBS) in Toronto.  She joined FVAD alumnae Isabella, also from the PPA program, who was accepted in to the NBS professional division the year before.

In only her second month of training at NBS, Anna learned that she would be cast as Marie (Clara) in the upcoming season of Nutcracker.

Anna will now experience the amazing privilege of performing this coveted role on stage with the dancers of the National Ballet of Canada, and select students of Canada’s National Ballet School. Isabella has already had the excitement of the production, having been selected to perform in multiple roles in the National Ballet’s Nutcracker in 2017.

Huge congratulations to both students in this exciting next chapter of their training!

Thanks to both NBS and National Ballet of Canada for making dreams come true. 🙂
