“When I first came to Ballet Bloch, I never thought I could pursue a professional career in ballet. Now, I have no doubt in my mind that this is the only career I want and I have learned the foundational skills that allow me to pursue my dream. Ballet Bloch gave me the experience of dancing in full-length ballets including Romeo & Juliet, The Nutcracker, and Alice in Wonderland. I now understand the complexity and the hard work it takes to be a part of these productions and what it means to truly work together as a company to make these performances a success.”

“At Canada’s National Ballet School, I could feel how my time at Ballet Bloch had made a big impact on me. If I had no such professional training on classical ballet, then I wouldn’t be here right now. I thank Ms. Tracy, Ms. Muriel, Mr. Tom, and Ms. Mariana for the best training there could ever be. For 4 years I have learned so much from them. Thank you so much Ms. Tracy, for everything. From the ballet classes, to the hours of hard working rehearsals, to the final performance. Every step of the way you had taught me patience, strength and how to handle the pain. During competitions backstage when I would get nervous you would always hug me tell me to just go out there and…”

“I love to be on stage and perform. I allow movement to speak for me and Ballet Bloch provided many performance opportunities over the years from festivals to galas. I will have those memories for a lifetime!”

Emily Hogan

“I have trained with Ms. Tracy since I was 8 years old. I followed her from Pro Arte Dance School when she opened Ballet Bloch Canada in 2012. I continued to train diligently under her tutelage, always trying to retain the wealth of knowledge she gives. Ms. Tracy was instrumental in helping me grow as a dancer both technically and artistically encouraging and inspiring a growing passion for dance. Her belief in me helped achieve milestones such as winning BC Arts Provincials Ballet II and III and getting accepted into the highly acclaimed San Francisco Ballet School in 2015. It was a huge accomplishment for me to be able to attend this international school…”

“Looking back at my journey in dance I’ve found ballet has allowed me to discover who I am as an individual. Ballet has taught me to be resilient, diligent, and independent. As much as dance has enriched my life, it has also presented me with some of my most difficult challenges. In the summer of 2017 I struggled with my confidence which led to burn out with ballet. I then decided to stop dancing all together. However, during that year I realized how much I missed the stage and how I feel when I dance. When I perform it gives me the opportunity to be the outgoing and confident person that I wish I could be in my daily life. During the following summer I worked…”

“Ballet has been the biggest part of my life for as long as I can remember. Since I was seven years old, hardly a day has gone by where I wasn’t dancing, whether it was performing in my kitchen, or rehearsing at the studio. Ballet has shaped who I am today through the lifelong skills I’ve learned, the amazing memories I’ve created and the friends I’ve made from all over the world. My 11 years of dedication to ballet have created too many memories to name. My first ballet solo where I was Bambi; numerous summer intensives such as Canada’s National Ballet (Toronto), École Supérieure de Ballet du Quebec (Montreal), The Rock School (Philadelphia) and …”

“I can hardly remember a time I wasn’t dancing. From preschool creative dance with Miss Lindy to my first real ballet class with Miss Tracy to my graduating performance— over the past 11 years hardly a day has gone by without ballet. Some of my fondest memories have been in ballet, whether it be performing my first duo (the milk maid and the cow!), participating in competitions with my teachers and friends, or simply working on technique in the studio day after day. I have received so many amazing opportunities through dance, and am thankful to have had experiences such as spending the summer in San Francisco at Alonzo King LINES Ballet or dancing onstage at Lincoln …”

“I took my first storybook ballet class at the age of 4. Through the next few years I enjoyed jazz, modern, tap, etc but once I added ballet back at the age of 8, I never stopped. At age 12 I learned my first variation from Coppélia and from that moment on I knew that ballet was the style of dance I loved the most. The studio has always been a second home to me. It has been a place I have always looked forward to going after school, a place I can be myself, and a place where I can express all my thoughts and emotions through movement. One of my favourite things about ballet is how it makes me feel most like myself. When I walk into the studio I can’t help but have a smile on my face …”

“I can’t remember a time in my life with out ballet, and I certainly would not be the person I am today with out it. Over the past thirteen years it’s taught me lessons that have, and will continue to shape my life. I can hardly believe that we’ve reached the end of this chapter, and I have to say good bye to Ballet Bloch. It’s truly become my family and I can’t imagine not seeing everyone everyday. I’m so grateful for each and every teacher. Words can not express how much their support and encouragement has meant to me over the years. Although it may be sad I couldn’t be more excited for what’s yet to come. I hope to pursue a career in Ballet…”
