We’re thrilled to welcome Tiler Peck and Robert Fairchild as guest teachers for the 2013 Summer Program. Both are Principal Dancers at New York City Ballet and were featured recently on CBS’s 60 Minutes.

Born in Bakersfield, Tiler trained in Los Angeles with several teachers including WSB’s Yvonne Mounsey before moving to the the School of American Ballet, the official school of New York City Ballet, where she is now a Principal Dancer.

Robert began dance training in Salt Lake City at the age of four and formal ballet training at ten. After training at the School of American Ballet he joined NYCB as an apprentice, rising quickly to Principal Dancer. Teaching schedules for Tiler and Robert will be announced shortly.

Our six-week 2013 Summer Program offers a well-rounded dance curriculum for two different age groups: Children’s (8-11 years) and Juniors’ (12-20 years), at all proficiency levels. Registration fees are structured to offer students the greatest possible scheduling flexibility. Visit Summer Program page or download WSB Summer 2013 Brochure (pdf).
