She’s dancing this summer

A dancer who’s been studying at a classical ballet school down south is fresh off a win at provincials and training with a program in San Francisco this summer.

Brenna Metzmeier, 18, begins at a ballet intensive this week for five weeks that culminates in a show at its completion.

The intensive will involve dancing for about 40 hours a week, she said.

And in her first time at provincials, she came in first.

She started dancing at Sophia’s Dance Studio and when the opportunity came to study at the Victoria Academy of Ballet in Grade 11, she took it.

Dance is just my passion. It’s a lot of fun, and a lot of work,” said Metzmeier, adding she likes neo-classical ballet, which is contemporary and ballet combined.

It’s fun and you can be creative and it’s exciting to learn and to do.”

In the fall, she heads back to the ballet academy for her second year, which will culminate in graduation with a diploma in classical ballet next year. Then she’s looking to audition for a job with a dance company.

For now, the intensive will provide her with more experience.

I’m not sure what it’s going to be like but I’m really excited. I’ve watched it on YouTube and they’re really amazing,” she said about the dance intensive.
