Artistic director Brandyn Boyd of Sequim’s Aspire Academy of Expressive Arts presented her students in their first ballet demonstration in April at the Masonic Hall in Port Angeles.

Each of Boyd’s classes, Primary Level III prepared an entire class of exercises to demonstrate the techniques they’ve learned this year.

“The dancers learned so much this year, preparing for the demonstration,” Boyd said. “It was a very valuable process to go through for each of my classes. They performed with such pride.”

Aspire Academy includes the American Ballet Theatre National Training Curriculum, a nine-level program that combines high quality artistic training with the basics of dancer health and child development. Aspire is at 160 Harrison Road No. 1, Sequim.
