COMPANY EXPERIENCE FOR ASPIRANT DANCERS
ARTISTIC DIRECTOR ASTRID SHERMAN
An organization committed to creating leaders within the emerging generation of Canadian dancers, Pro Arté Centre’s CatchingART continues to nurture young dancers who aspire to a professional career.
Over the program’s six-year past, CatchingART alumni have gone on to dance in companies and programs around Canada, the U.S., and Europe, including Juilliard, Les Ballets Jazz, Ballet BC, Ballet Theatre UK, Alberta Ballet, Rudra- Béjart, Rambert, Twyla Tharpe Dance, and Ballet Jörgen.
CatchingART provides priceless professional learning opportunities and experiences. Last season saw CatchingART performing shows and charity functions alongside the Lions Gate Sinfonia, the Vancouver Metropolitan Orchestra, Pandora’s Vox, Espiritu Vocal Ensemble, Yarilo Music, Ann Mortifee, and Education without Borders, in addition to their annual Platform Performance Series with guest choreographers.
CatchingART is also involved in local school performances to promote education through the powerful language of dance. Artistic Director Astrid Sherman shares, “We have an incredible opportunity to be a voice and catalyst for change by using dance to make positive social comments.”
With repertoire ranging from classical to modern, pure joy to social commentary, CatchingART will enlighten your mind, steal your heart, and make you a lover of dance forever!
