Jazz 1


This class is taught by:

Graeme Kitagawa

Graeme grew up in Brooks, Alberta and started dancing at the age of 3. There he trained at Rhythmic Soles Dance Academy in Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop, Contemporary and Musical Theatre. He has also completed his ADAPT Intermediate 3 Jazz and Tap exams. After graduation Graeme moved to Vancouver to train at Harbour Dance Centre in the Intensive Training Program. Under the direction of Moe Brody, he trained with many well-known choreographers in Vancouver. This year Graeme completed a year of training with Joanne Pesusich and the Source Dance Company. Also this year, he appeared in an episode of ABC’s “Imaginary Mary” and was a part of a production of “The Music Man” with Gateway Theatre.

Pamela Rosa

Pamela is a professional dancer and choreographer. She has performed in numerous theatre, television and film productions and is director and co-owner of Harbour Dance.

Julio Fuentes

Julio is no stranger to the performing arts and has been singing since the age of 4. Originally from the Philippines, he belongs to a family of performers and grew up exposed to show business, thanks to his parents.

Although dance came late in his life at the age of 19, Julio immediately fell in love with it and started training in ballet, jazz, tap, contemporary, and hiphop. He has had the privilege of performing, coaching, choreographing and adjudicating all over the USA, Canada, Europe, Guam, and the Philippines. His choreography has garnered him 1st place overall and many choreography awards in competitions across Canada and the United States. His credits include Fashion Rocks Canada, America’s Best Dance Crew Canadian Tour, Two From Galilee, adjudicating for the International Dance Challenge, Dance Olympus, Thunderstruck, Dance Manitoba and many others.

In recent years, Julio has really been motivated to inspire others to be storytellers, both as choreographers and as dancers, and seeks to help others dance beyond what they feel their bodies can do. Julio hopes to continue traveling with his work and be inspired through working with different artists and dancers.

Julio is currently the director and founder of The Aviary, a performance-based company which started in September 2014 and is based out of Harbour Dance Centre.

Watch for Julio in the upcoming production of In The Heights at Arts Club Theatre in the spring of 2015.
