As a special summer treat, Gold Pan City Dance studio is offering summer classes with former GPCD student  Calida Kuzek and professional dancer Nicholas Lydiate.

Kuzek, who is currently working and teaching in the Lower Mainland, brings a wealth of experience and professional skills to the five-day program. Her career to date includes principle dancer for the new Nickelodeon movie RAGZ, live performances around Vancouver and teaching at a variety of studios throughout the Lower Mainland, including Harbour Dance Centre.

Lydiate began dancing at the age 4 in England, training in ballet and tap. After moving to Canada in 1997, he added jazz, lyrical, hip hop and has performed in four Dare to Dance productions. He has also received professional training from both the National Ballet school and the Royal Winnipeg Ballet school. After moving to Vancouver in 2007 to pursue his career as a dancer and choreographer, Lydiate has enjoyed much success in both areas.

These two professionals are offering 4.5 hours daily, Tuesday – Saturday, July 3 – 7 with the option of additional hours for solos with Lydiate or Kuzek. All solos must be booked and paid in advance.
