ROYAL WINNIPEG BALLET AUDITIONS DANCERS IN OTTAWA - OCT. 21


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 20, 2011


Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet School has High Hopes for Ottawa

Winnipeg, Manitoba (October 20, 2011) Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet School Professional Division is heading to Ottawa on October 21 to search for the next stars of the ballet world; and it’s a location that in the past has not disappointed. No one knows better than Ontario’s Sarah Davey what it takes to make it as a professional dancer at the Royal Winnipeg Ballet. Before the audition that changed her life, Sarah began dancing at the age of three and graduated from the RWB School Professional Division in 2007. She trained in the School’s Aspirant Program until 2009, when she joined the RWB as an apprentice. Sarah was promoted to the corps de ballet in the 2001/12 season. Sarah has performed in various ballets including Moulin Rouge – The Ballet®, Nutcracker, Swan Lake, Wonderland, Val Caniparoli’s A Cinderella Story, Dracula and The Ecstasy of Rita Joe. Sarah Davey will be in Ottawa from January 26-28 in the RWB’s stunning new ballet Svengali.

Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet School Professional Division is a globally renowned school providing the highest calibre of classical training to both dancers and dance educators. In the next several months, the RWB School faculty will visit 16 cities across North America on its 2011/12 International Audition Tour. It is expected that hundreds of hopeful ballet dancers and teachers will audition to obtain a coveted spot in the RWB School Professional Division Summer Session.

Each year the Audition Tour allows the RWBS faculty an opportunity to discover the best young dancers on the continent. During the tour hundreds of promising dancers will audition for a place in the RWB School Professional Division Summer Session - the second-phase in the audition process for full-time acceptance. The successful young people who are accepted will have the opportunity to be nurtured as artists while working towards careers as dancers or dance teachers.

“The young talent we discover on the tour will have the opportunity to train with other exceptional young people who share their goal of pursuing professional dance careers,” says RWB School Director Arlene Minkhorst. “Working alongside others who share the same commitment and focus can be invaluable to a developing artist and lead to even greater success. This is evidenced by the many graduates of the Professional Division who have gone on, not only to work with the distinguished Royal Winnipeg Ballet, but with many other respected dance companies the world over.”

On October 21, 2011 at 9:00am the RWB School’s 2011/12 International Audition Tour will kick off in Ottawa, Ontario. The Royal Winnipeg Ballet has been fortunate to have attracted many talented dancers from Ontario over the years.

Anyone interested in attending auditions is encouraged to visit the RWB School website at www.rwb.org/school/pd/audition or call the School office at 1-204-957-3467. All candidates are asked to pre-register for audition classes. Individuals who are unable to attend in person may submit an audition DVD to Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet School at 380 Graham Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba, R3C 4K2.

During the course of the audition tour, master classes will also be offered giving dancers an additional opportunity to work with the renowned RWBS faculty.

Dancers as young as 10 years old are invited to audition and attend the master classes. Interested individuals should contact the RWB School at 1-204-957-3467 or visit www.rwb.org/school/pd/audition

Since 1971, the RWB School Professional Division has graduated more than 400 dance artists and educators. Countless graduates have gone on to become renowned dancers, among them RWB Principal Dancer Vanessa Lawson and former RWB prima ballerina Evelyn Hart. Many have also become internationally recognized choreographers, including Peter Quanz, Mark Godden and Jorden Morris. Many more are leaders within the international dance community as artistic directors, ballet masters, and dance teachers. And more still have gone on to successful careers with renowned companies around the world, including the Stuttgart Ballet, The National Ballet of Canada, Nederlans Dans Theater, Alberta Ballet, LaLaLa Human Steps and others.

The RWB School is grateful for the support of Investors Group through the Investors Group National Scholarship program in conjunction with the 2011/12 International Audition Tour.

Media information / For immediate release
Please retain for coming events listings

MATT ANDERSON CAPS HIS BUSIEST YEAR YET WITH A NATIONAL TOUR
TO LAUNCH HIS NEW CD, COAL MINING BLUES

Ottawa concert at Centrepointe Theatre set for Friday, October 28, as the singer/guitarist heads east midway through his 40-date tour…

Matt Andersen, the acclaimed singer-songwriter and guitarist from New Brunswick, has had the busiest year of his career. It’s included a six-day blues cruise around the Caribbean, two shows at Britain’s massive Glastonbury Festival, and 14 major Canadian folk, jazz or blues festivals. He played nearly 100 other shows from the Maritimes to Vancouver Island, and two tours supporting the CBC’s Stuart McLean’s Vinyl CafĂ© concerts. He also toured American cities with the Old Crow Medicine Show.

And now, in support of a brand new CD that was released September 20, he’s in the midst of a tour that’ll take him to nine provinces. So far, 40 concerts have been confirmed and almost all the shows in Western Canada were sold out in advance.

An Ottawa-area show for Matt Andersen, with Old Man Luedecke as special guest, has been set for Friday, October 28, at the Centrepointe Theatre (off Baseline Road, between Woodroofe and Greenbank Road).


THE DETAILS

WHO: Brilliant guitarist, singer and songwriter MATT ANDERSEN with special guest OLD MAN LUEDECKE

WHY: Andersen’s the talk of the town; Old Man Luedecke, who also hails from the Maritimes, is a banjo wizard

WHEN: Friday, Oct. 28, 8.00 p.m. (doors 7.30 p.m.)

WHERE: Centrepointe Theatre, 101 Centrepointe Dr.


TICKETS: $42.00

Presented by Shantero Productions

New CD expected to be major seller

Andersen’s career is expected to move upward with the release of his latest CD. Coal Mining Blues was recorded at drummer Levon Helm’s Woodstock NY studios. Produced by Nashville-based Canadian guitarist Colin Linden, the record includes performances by Garth Hudson, the former keyboard player with The Band and singer Amy Helm. The CD is on Ontario-based Busted Flat Records, distributed by F.A.B.

Hailing from New Brunswick, Andersen is known for his larger-than-life showmanship that has earned him a fervent and steadfast fan base. His sprawling blues, roots and rock music hybrid has gained him multiple East Coast Music Awards and an international reputation.

The moment this tour ends on November 24 in Glasgow, Nova Scotia, Andersen sets off on a month-long tour in Australia — his first trip down under.
