6-7:30 p.m.

*André Santos will assist in the staging of PBT’s production of Cinderella with the PBT Orchestra at the Benedum Center May 17-19.

Jayne is a former dancer with Nederlands Dans Teatr and West Australian Ballet.

André has danced with the West Australian Ballet and is a first soloist with Les Grands Ballet Canadiens in Montréal, Québec, Canada. 

The master class is choreography-based in classical & neo-classical ballet. Artists will learn choreography from Cinderella in order to develop musicality, dynamics and the use of space. Individuals will work with choreographic movement language, work in groups, fulfill tasks, provide feedback and communicate with one another within an artistic environment. The goal of the master class is to support artists in the development of artistic voice, individuality and creativity.
