New ballet ensemble in Winnipeg

By Brittany Duggan

Choreographer Peter Quanz officially launched his new ballet ensemble Q Dance / Quanz Danse with a triple bill evening on May 28th and 29th, 2010, at the Gas Station Art Centre in Winnipeg. The inaugural event revealed two world premiers as well as the Canadian premier of In Tandem, a piece commissioned by New York’s Guggenheim Museum in September 2009 for the launch of its 25th anniversary season of Works & Progress. A former student of Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet School, Quanz has been choreographing for over eight years for some of the world’s leading ballet companies. Joining Quanz in Q Dance / Quanz Danse are Vanessa Lawson, Jo-Anne Sundermeier, Amanda Green, Maureya Lebowitz, Alexander Gamayunov and Yosuke Mino; all dancers from Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet.
