Bridge to Artists (BTA), has been by far one of the most thrilling and memorable learning experiences I have had the privilege to be a part of. From the process to the performance, this is what the art is all about. On top of some extraordinary choreography, you have the opportunity to dive deep into character work and really learn and push boundaries you may or may not know you have within. BTA is about growth and more than just dance, it is about arts, storytelling, and life. You are pushed to bring out your best. One of my favourite things about BTA is the relationship between the professionals and students. It was an exhilarating experience. The village is my home. Thank you, Vlad, for always pushing me and believing in me.
