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."

Emily Noton

Emily grew up and trained in Edmonton, where she started her career with Citie Ballet after years of competing in all disciplines. She is a true multi-genre performer and teacher who holds a B.A. from the University of Alberta, and a diploma in Arts Administration from Grant MacEwan University that she completed while dancing. In addition to Citie Ballet she also performed with the Russian Vaganova Society and Mile Zero Dance Company in Canada. In New York she performed with the Graham-based Saba Dance Theatre and LiNK Contemporary Jazz Dance Company, and in Philadelphia with the Rebecca Davis Dance Company. Internationally, she worked with several ballet schools in Okinawa, Japan, and taught at Broadway Dance Centre in Tokyo. In addition to ballet and contemporary concert dance, Emily has performed with music legend Mannheim Steamroller, and Zach Galifianakis, star of “The Hangover”. She has modeled for the renowned dance photographer Lois Greenfield, and has been sponsored by Bloch dancewear and Sansha. While living in New York she used her diverse talents to collaborate with the creatively renowned Crunch Gyms to film dance fitness videos and do TV publicity for the company, and has also appeared as a background dancer in art films.

In addition to all of this exciting work, she has always remained very committed and enthusiastic about teaching dance at all levels and has branched out to training actors in New York as well. Emily is passionate about the pursuit of physical training in dance and has her Certified Personal Trainer designation from NASM in the US. One of her newest endeavors with colleagues in New York was the formation of PAC (Performing Arts Collective), which tours the North East area conducting performance workshops for pre-professionals. Recently, she has choreographed new work for Alberta's International Feats Festival of Dance, was the guest choreographer for Motif 2011 at the University of Alberta, and has been adjudicating across North America. She is excited to be back in Canada and Vancouver-based!

This class is for absolute beginners, learning the basics for ballet and is a good foundation for other forms of dance. Classes are with live piano accompaniment.
