Goh Choo San, André Prokovsky, and Sir Frederick  Ashton.

 

Ms. Bagg has a diploma in biomechanics  and physiology from the University of the  Witwatersrand and integrates this knowledge into  her teaching. She is clearly able to assess the  structure and limitations of a young dancer and work  diligently educating through awareness and  encouragement. Ms. Bagg has been invited as a  guest teacher to various companies and schools in  the US, Canada and internationally. She was Ballet  Mistress of Ballet BC and Alberta Ballet and has  been instrumental in staging Swan Lake, Giselle and  Romeo and Juliet for South African Ballet Theatre  and Washington Ballet.

 

Miss Bagg is on faculty as  teacher of Ballet BC as well as various  

contemporary programmes in the city of Vancouver.  She runs her own drop in classes and is on faculty  at Inspired Movement Ballet Conservatory in San  Diego. Ms Bagg has also been appointed Canadian  Tutor for Progressive Ballet Technique, a unique  conditioning curriculum devised by Marie Walton  Mahon in Australia.  

In 2019 Ms Bagg was approached by Joshua  Beamish, Artistic Director of MoveTheCompany to  perform the role of Bertha in his staging of Giselle  and was invited to teach his company on tour in Germany as well as performing with an  

internationally renown choreographer Idan Cohen in  Vancouver. She has been invited to guest teach Les  Ballet Jazz de Montreal this summer as well.  

Specializing in Dance rehabilitation and with over 40  years of a passionate and very successful career as  a professional dancer, teacher and coach, Ms. Bagg  is able to draw on this experience and offer a rich  

and insightful approach to teaching and coaching.  She establishes an environment of positive energy  and demands excellence in a nurturing and inspiring  manner.
