#MeetTheDancers
Sebastian Fairley is dancing in his second season with Ballet Victoria.

“My go-to meal to power me through a day of rehearsals, or to fuel a performance, is a wrap with three scrambled eggs, hummus, hot sauce, avocado, and arugula, followed by a coffee or coconut ...water.”

“A book I’m currently a slave to is Ernest Hemingway’s The Garden of Eden.”

“My two favourite (and very different) movies right now are The Big Lebowski and Nightcrawler.”

“As a young ballet student, Romeo and Juliet was the first ballet I ever saw live, so to now be on the other side as a performer is an extremely humbling feeling. For me, the most enjoyable part of Romeo and Juliet has to be the process of developing my character and immersing myself in the story.”

Julia Jones-Whitehead is a soloist with Ballet Victoria.

“One of my favourite pastimes is doing crosswords; they help me calm my mind, and I get to learn fun facts! I do the New York Times crossword every day. I also love to read, paint, and crochet.”

“My... go-to breakfast is a bowl of oatmeal with peanut butter, and fruit with yogurt. One of my favourite sweet treats is an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie from Bond Bond's Bakery.”

“My fiancé and I have a cute (and sometimes mischievous) cat named Loki.”

“I never get tired of the music from Romeo and Juliet. It matches the story so well and fuels my emotions when I am dancing and acting. I can distinctly remember the first time I heard the Dance of the Knights when I was young and the effect it had on me. It’s a great feeling now being able to perform to it as a professional dancer.”

Yui Watanabe is a Soloist with Ballet Victoria.

“My favourite food is CHICKEN (chicken wings, chicken karaage, fried chicken)! It is part of my routine to eat chicken wings before shows.”

“3 words to describe myself are… Funny, creative, and ...hungry.”

“Jumps and fouettés are my favourite steps. A few years ago I was injured and I could not jump for several weeks. I missed the feeling of flying through the air so much.”

“Romeo & Juliet was the first full-length creation I was part of when I joined the company so it will always be special. I’m thrilled to dance it again and see how much I have grown as an artist.”

Andrea Bayne is a Principal Dancer with Ballet Victoria.

“3 words to describe myself are…
Hardworking, sensitive, and dramatic.”

“My favourite pastimes outside of work are reading a good book (my fav series are Stieg Larsson’s Girl with a Dragon... Tattoo series), running (especially by the ocean), and spending time with my mom and my ‘Shutters’ family.”

“My favourite food is any type of seafood - I’m a true Maritimer through and through!”

“My favourite movies are Dirty Dancing and A Star is Born.”

“I love all animals especially dogs and horses.”

“My favourite aspect of Romeo & Juliet is hard to choose. The amazing music of Prokofiev is just as heart wrenching for me as the story. Being able to share this timeless classic with Victoria audiences is a true honour.”

This Canada Day, rather than fireworks and celebration, Ballet Victoria stands in solidarity with Indigenous communities across Canada. The injustice suffered by Indigenous peoples is indescribable and we mourn the children who never returned home. We now must take the time to reflect on what it ...means to be Canadian.
