National Arts in Education Week and ARB's DANCE POWER

by Lisa Beth Vettoso
Director of Educational Programming, American Repertory Ballet
 
In July of 2010, the U.S. House of Representatives passed House Resolution #275 designating the second week of September as National Arts in Education Week. This year, National Arts in Education Week falls on September 14 through September 20, 2014. At American Repertory Ballet (ARB), this same week marks the beginning of our 30th year of our signature dance education residency: DANCE POWER.
 

Reflections on my Internship

 As I am coming up on my last week as an intern at American Repertory Ballet, I am shocked at how quickly these past weeks have gone by.

These roles are kept very close to the original choreography; they require precision and artistry.

My Injury and Recovery Process - Reflections and Advice

by American Repertory Ballet dancer Marc St-Pierre

How it happened

It was September 5th 2012, the company was just returning from a very long layoff. Any dancer that has ever been on a long summer layoff knows what I am talking about.

This yearly occurrence can be depressing, even for the seasoned professional dancer.
