The Choreographic Lab participants this year are First Soloist Robert Stephen, Second Soloist Christopher Stalzer, Corps de Ballet member Dylan Tedaldi, Ballet Master and Artistic Director of YOU dance Lindsay Fischer and The Royal Ballet’s Choreographic Apprentice and former student with Canada’s National Ballet School Robert Binet.
