Categories: Dance

For the first time ever we will commission TWO new works by local Utah Artists: Katlyn Addison and Joshua Whitehead.

Born in Ontario, Canada, Katlyn started her professional training at the age of ten with the National Ballet School of Canada. Previously a Corps de Ballet member with Houston Ballet, Katlyn is now a First Soloist with Ballet West where she has danced since 2011. Joshua Whitehead started his training at Academy de Ballet under the supervision of Arnora Hummel.  Joshua is currently a demi soloist with Salt Lake City's Elite Ballet Company, Ballet West.

In between those two wonderful works will be “Lark Ascending" a piece of classic and stunning choreography by former Ballet West Director Bruce Marks performed by the Trainee Division of the Ballet West Academy. As a special treat “Lark Ascending” will be performed to the LIVE music of the Gifted Music School.
