Contempo Dance Academy Welcomes "Breaking Pointe" Star
Katie Martin, star of the CW's popular ballet reality show, "Breaking Pointe" will be teaching a class open to intermediate/advanced students at Contempo Dance Academy in Lisle, IL on September 11, 2013.
Online, September 5, 2013 (Newswire.com) - Contempo Dance Academy, a nationally-renowned private dance studio in Chicago's Western Suburbs, announced today that Katie Martin, a celebrity from the CW's popular ballet reality show, "Breaking Pointe" will be facilitating a Master Class open to intermediate and advanced ballet students on September 11, 2013 at their Lisle facility. This special seminar for dancers ages 12 through adult will be held from 7:00-8:30 and will focus on refining elements of ballet technique.
Contempo Director, Kimberly Kovacevich, indicated that by providing enrichment experiences such as Master Classes and dance intensives for Contempo students and teachers, she encourages them to reach their maximum potential in a safe environment that is easily accessible to families in Chicago's Western Suburbs. With the continued popularity of dance programs on network and cable television, Kovacevich believes that aspiring dancers need to understand that behind the glamour and technical feats they witness on TV is years of hard work and disciplined training. She hopes that bringing a celebrity like Katie Martin to her studio will help reinforce that concept with her students.
"What produces outstanding dancers with long careers and healthy lives is balanced and careful training, and not repetition of potentially dangerous tricks that are designed to shock audiences and win trophies at competitions," Kovacevich said. "But with hard work and persistence, a world of opportunity can open up for dedicated dance students."
