Master Class with Dale Shields



We are so excited to host our first monthly master class on Sunday. Our hope is that this series will foster unity and collaboration amongst the Atlanta dance community. We want to create an environment where students can dance alongside pros and we can all learn from + be inspired by one another. Hope to see you there!
Here’s a little more about our guest teacher.

DALE SHIELDS graduated from the North Carolina School of the Arts and Butler University before starting her career as a professional dancer. She rose to principal dancer with Indianapolis Ballet Theatre under artistic director George Verdak, and appeared in principal roles of many productions, including Giselle, The Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, The Nutcracker, Romeo & Juliet, Gaité Parisienne, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Coppélia, Night Shadow, and The Moor’s Pavane, as well as a great number of original works. She served as Principal Ballet Mistress for Ballet Internationale, where she assisted with the original choreography of several full-length ballets by artistic director Eldar Aliev and worked alongside Irina Kolpakova in staging many well-known classics. Accepting Artistic Director John McFall’s invitation to join Atlanta Ballet as Ballet Mistress gave her the opportunity to assist in mounting many full-length productions and to work with inspiring national and international choreographers.
