Laguna Dance Festival will offer a master dance class taught by New York City Ballet principal dancer and California native Tiler Peck on Saturday, Oct. 31 from 10 a.m. to noon at the , 625 Park Avenue, Laguna Beach. Ms. Peck, known for her extraordinary talent and outgoing personality, will lead a ballet technique class followed by a question and answer session.
Ms. Peck, a Bakersfield native, began her dance training at the age of seven, studying privately in Los Angeles with several well-known dance luminaries. She followed an uncommonly accelerated path to the spotlight, joining New York City Ballet as an apprentice in 2004 at age 15 and becoming a principal dancer in 2009.
“Tiler is an enormously versatile dancer with prodigious technical gifts,” noted Laguna Dance Festival Founder and Artistic Director Jodie Gates, who is also vice dean and director of the University of Southern California’s brand-new Glorya Kaufman School of Dance. “She is also a dear friend of Laguna Dance Festival. We love having her come to Laguna Beach every chance we can get, and we appreciate that she makes time for us in her busy schedule.”
Cost is $25 per dancer; observers $15. Space is limited; reservations are required. This class is recommended intermediate and advanced dance students age 12 and older who have at least two years of pointe experience.
