Pointe Repertoire

This class is taught by:

Eva Carius

Eva Carius started her ballet training the suburbs of Vancouver with Ellen Andrews and Jo Slater. From local competitions she won scholarships to the Banff School of Fine Arts and the School of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet. She joined the RWB company in 1975. She danced in a broad range of rolls, from the classics of Les Sylphides (Waltz) and Ashton's Les Patineurs (Blue Girl) to the more modern and dramatic Family Scenes (The Mother) and Rite of Spring (Chosen One) by Oscar Araiz. In 1980 she was invited to Le Ballet du Grand Theatre de Geneve in Switzerland as a soloist, promoted to principal a year later. There she continued her work with Oscar Araiz reprising former roles and creating many new works.

Eva began teaching while in Europe, at summer school in Vignale, Italy. On returning to Canada she danced and taught company class for Judith Marcuse Repertory Dance Theatre. She also began teaching at The Dance Gallery, Terpsichore Studios, Goh Ballet Academy and Harbour Dance Centre in Vancouver. After taking a some years off to raise a family, Eva has been teaching at Harbour Dance Centre since 2006.

"Dance has brought a great deal of joy to my life, and I love to encourage students' natural joy of movement to flow through their ballet technique, fine-tuning that technique along the way."

Would you like to brush up your point work?
Do you still love those point shoes that have been gathering dust since you were a teenager?
Does it seem just a little too scary to put on your point shoes in a regular ballet class?

Eva Carius is starting a pointe class at Harbour Dance Centre on Saturdays at 2:45. It'll begin with a gentle warm-up to get you back up onto your points, move onto some simple centre work and finish with exerpts from classical variations.

This is not a beginner class.
You should be taking at least 2 ballet classes a week, at least level 1, to maintain the necessary strength and placement.

Starting June 17:

Gamzatti variation from La Bayadere
(Hannah O'Neil)
