Guibord's dance students on June 8th performed a Public Performance.
Free admisssion...we support the arts and our community
& WE LOVE TO PERFORM!
The theme was learning choreography from different choreographers. We also performed three Sleeping Beauty variations which is an important part of a ballet dancers training!
Lillian auditioned, was accepted, and will attend summer training at
"Steps on Broadway, NYC via Zoom and will train with Rebecca Kelly in AuSable, She was also accepted at ABT.
Her summer will be busy!
Students who train at Guibord's are welcome to perform at the end
of the year.
Routines are not taught all
Costumes are provided by the school. Ask how we achieve this ? Ms. Guibord has supported the concept of providing demonstrations & or school performances her entire career starting as a dance studio production to events when she directed
The North Country
for 26 years!

Over the past five years of summer intensives, I have visited many schools across the US, as well as international programs. Each improved my artistry however I believe Boston Ballet was the best as I experienced their summer intensive on a full scholarship. The teachers exemplified their own unique skills which provided me with new ways to express myself. My technique was challenged allowing me to grow.
I appreciated every aspect of the program and recommend it to improve tech;nique and artistry. I have auditioned and been accepted into the year long pre-professional program where I will train six days a week and attend high school.
I have been cast as "Clara" in
Boston Ballets Nutcracker Ballet for the second year in a row! I am so excited to repeat the role
300 auditioned....3 cast as Clara for the 44 performances with a
Awarded December 2020
Boston Ballet School
Laura Young Scholar 2020-2021
Scholarship to honor Laura Young and reward and give inspiration to the students awarded. It symbolizes outstanding talent, discipline and motivation.
Summer 2018 I attended NYSSSA's month long program for Modern dance taking classes from Carolyn Adams, Julie A Strandberg, and Heidi Sperounis as well as master classes with Robert Battle & Earl Mosley. Each instructor gave me something important to work on. I have learned the proper way to treat a dancers body, how to choreograph using writings, how to perform safety rolls, how to strenghten my core. The history of dance was included. I have learned so much and am unable to choose a favorite moment because it was all truly amazing!! NYSSSA has helped me to become a stronger dancer...I am so thankful to have been able to attend.
I auditioned and attended the program again July 2019. I performed a duet, wonderful experience.
It was inspiring!
Also danced in a
Robert Battle piece.
He is artistic director of
Ailey in NYC
Ruth Andrien, Paul Taylor director/dancer commented on my lovely way of moving! Thank you!
I also passed my first teachers exam thru
Cecchetti USA this spring.
*Lily will assist Ms. Guibord in specific classes this year as she continues her training and seeks to take the next level teachers exam. Congratulations Lily!
We attended the Cecchetti Day Workshop in Cheshire CT. Held on Sunday Oct 13th. The girls took 4 classes for a full day of dancing!
Lillian worked extra hard in the Variations Class which Ms. Seibert set some from the ballet "Pas de Quatre"
Alaire & Grace enjoyed the Contemporary class as well as their ballet classes.
Grace was awarded a scholarship to attend next year or another workshop sponsored by Cecchetti USA
We had a successful trip!!!
