Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Justin Calvadores began his dance training at the Royal Winnipeg Ballet School in 2012. He moved to Vancouver to train at the Arts Umbrella Graduate program under the direction of Artemis Gordon and Lynn Sheppard in 2015. He has had the privilege to work with diverse artists such as Fernando Hernando Magadan, Crystal Pite, Aszure Barton, Michael Schumacher and Doug Letheren. Last June, Justin toured Europe with the Arts Umbrella Senior Dance Company, where he performed Chorus by Lesley Telford in the Nederlands Dans Theater’s Shortcuts XL’17. Justin is grateful for the opportunity to apprentice with Ballet BC this season.
