Meet the PointePeople Mentorship Program Finalists



We've been wanting to start a PointePeople ambassador program for many months now but really wanted to do something special for dancers.

#FeelGoodDanceBetter is the PointePeople mantra and the basis of our new Mentorship Program. By doing good for yourself and others, you feel good, and dance better.

We reached out to a handful of professional dancers looking for the right mix of experience, interest, and enthusiasm and brought on seven of them as PointePeople Mentors:

  • Elizabeth Lamont of Royal Winnipeg Ballet
  • Tyler Donatelli of Houston Ballet
  • Julia Rust of Joffrey Ballet
  • Chelsea Thronson of CB2
  • Raven Barkley of Charlotte Ballet
  • Candy Tong of Complexions
  • Nardia Boodoo of Washington Ballet

We then launched a nationwide search of Mentees. 

We're excited to announce today that we have named 21 young dancers as Finalists in the program. Meet them below:
