Classes start Sept. 14; registration open
Beacon’s Ballet Arts Studio announces a new addition to its ballet faculty, Eve Chan, who will be teaching additional technique classes at the studio, including an advanced leaps and turns class on Fridays.
Chan began her ballet training in the Royal Academy of Dance method in Hong Kong. At age 17, she was selected into the professional training program at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, majoring in classical ballet. Upon graduation, she became a ballerina with the Hong Kong Ballet, where she performed for nine years, rising to demi-soloist and becoming resident choreographer.
While with the company, Chan performed throughout Europe, the United States, Canada and China, and danced many featured roles in classical and contemporary ballets. Chan’s choreography has been presented in the U.S., Europe and the Far East.
Upon retirement as a professional dancer, Chan received an MFA in dance from SUNY Purchase, where she taught ballet, pointe and variations classes at the Conservatory of Dance, and taught ballet classes at the School of the Arts. Chan currently teaches ballet in New York City and throughout the Northeast.
In addition to the new ballet technique classes, Ballet Arts Studio will be adding an additional musical theater class, taught by Katie Bissinger, on Fridays at 5:30. Classes for the 2015–16 season begin Sept. 14. Registration is now open.
