Repertory Dance Theatre to Present CHARETTE, 2/9
Representing the ballet side of things, Sharee has been a soloist with Ballet West and is currently on the faculty of the Modern Dance Department at the University of Utah and the Ballet West Conservatory.
Returning this year! An audience member will have the opportunity to buy his/her seat on the judging panel.
After six years on the RDT company and now serving as the first full time high school male dance teacher in Utah at Judge Memorial High School, Nathan has the experience of working with dancers of all ages. He is sure to please with his fantastic sense of humor and choreographic skills.
After judging last year, the School Director for Ballet West Academy returns as a choreographer for the second time. He has seen the competition from all sides and is sure to put on a great show.
Currently an Associate Professor of Dance at Utah Valley University and former dancer for the Diavolo Dance Theatre in Los Angeles, Campbell has also performed and choreographed for the music video and fashion industry. She recently started her own company, Monica Campbell & Dancers. Her exciting style should bring some fresh ideas to the Charette stage!
Miss Margene has owned and directed Miss Margene's Creative Classroom since 1976. Margene served on the West Valley City Arts Council from 1992 to 2006 and in 1992 she received the George Washington Gold Medal of Honor from the Freedoms Foundations at Valley Forge for her accomplishments with children. She and her husband sat on the judging panel last year and this year she's ready to conquer the choreographic side!
A Guatemala native and guest dancer with RDT, Corado was recently awarded the second runner up prize a the Choreography Design Project in junction with the Utah Regional Ballet. He hopes to add "Iron Choreographer" to his list of impressive awards.
