Island dancer one of 10 to win RWB scholarship
Following the Royal Winnipeg Ballet (RWB) School Professional Division’s 16-city International Audition Tour, 10 talented dancers have received the Investors Group National Scholarships to continue their dance training with the RWB School Professional Division’s Summer Session from July 2-29.
These 10 will join over 200 dancers from across the world for their month-long training. Among the scholarship recipients is Lorynn Crawford of Mount Herbert.
“It is always exciting for us to see emerging talent across the country,” shares Arlene Minkhorst, RWB school director. “The Investors Group National Scholarships are awarded to the most talented auditionees to acknowledge their potential and provide opportunities to learn with some of the country’s top dance educators.”
Investors Group provides a $2,000 scholarship to one aspiring dancer in every province across Canada. The scholarships enable recipients to attend the second phase of the audition process, four weeks of training at the RWB School, and a chance to earn a place in the full-time Professional Division program in Winnipeg.
