Ballet4life is pleased to welcome Tara-Brigitte Bhavani, First Artist of the Royal Ballet, as our guest teacher of the first of our 2017 Masterclass Series at St. Peter's on Saturday, 18 March.
Tara started training at the age of two and went on to study at Canada’s National Ballet School aged 10–18. She represented her country at the first International Congress of Classical Contemporary Ballet in Mexico (2000) and was awarded the Peter Dwyer scholarship for excellence in dance and the 2001 Erik Bruhn Memorial Award. Upon graduating in 2001 she spent six months at the Paris Opera Ballet School before joining The Royal Ballet in 2002. Since then she has danced many roles in all of the ballets performed at the Royal Opera House and around the world with the Royal Ballet.
During her time as a professional dancer, Tara has gained two teaching qualifications, as Associate with the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing and is an honours graduate of The Royal Ballet School’s Professional Dancers’ Teachers Course. She has taught at the National Ballet School and the Royal Ballet School and most recently taught at the Teacher’s Exchange at the Canadian Dance Expo in August 2016.
Tara is very excited to be guesting with Ballet4life and to sharing her wealth of knowledge and experience.
