Dancer Claire Leske wants to reconnect with Wagga via the art form she has turned into a career.
Miss Leske was raised in Wagga and started dance lessons at Mina’s Dance Academy when she was in year two.
Her high school dance teacher encouraged her to pursue contemporary dance and Miss Leske was accepted into the Victorian College of the Arts.
“My dance teacher opened my mind to a different approach to dance, especially, contemporary dance, which I hadn’t thought of before,” she said.
“I didn’t really know what it was until I left Wagga and started university.”
Miss Leske said she is drawn to the correlation between brain and body that is fostered through contemporary dance.
She completed her degree last year and is eager to give back to the community where her career started.
Miss Leske will return to Wagga from January 11 to 15, 2016 with two professional dancers to choreograph and rehearse a new routine.
A class for experienced dancers aged 14 years and over will be held daily at upstairs the Masonic Hall from 9am to 10.30am.
Members of the public are then invited to come and watch Miss Leske’s dance develop from 11am to 5pm daily.
