Margie Gillis --Alberta Ballet

I took a master class from her in a town pop. 5,000 about twelve years ago; tubby, untalented, uncoordinated etc, etc. I almost didn't go after I actually saw her dance. She was so kind, and so encouraging that I continued dancing and have always been very grateful.
I know we have lots of Canadians on the board, is anyone going? If so, please tell me all about it.
(I'd love to hear memories too.)

I would love to see Gillis perform! Please do tell us about the performance if anyone out there sees it!

Her performance has faded in my memory (because I have terrible visual memory) but I remember the feeling I had, incandescent describes it well.

I'm so sorry to have misread your original posting, but glad that you were excited by Gillis' work.

Do we really not have anyone from Alberta who's seen the performance?

I saw Gillis a few years ago at the NBoC's "Inspired by Gould" program. She did a lovely solo to Gould's recording of The Goldberg Variations. The solo had real clarity to it; it was mercifully not bogged down by conceptualizing.

Recently I was able to see Edouard Lock's Amelia (La La La Human Steps). I loved it on many different levels and would go out of my way to see another of his productions.
