Student SpotlightSLS 8th grader, Brooke Sessler has been studying classical ballet since she was 5 years old. She has been a student at Ballet Royale Institute of Maryland under the tutelage of internationally renowned and American Ballet Theater National Training Curriculum Instructor Donna Pidel. Brooke has advanced to the pre-professional training curriculum.
Brooke trains five or six days a week, with most sessions three to four hours and finds the training both exhilarating and exhausting. The challenge of the physical demands along with the mental focus required to execute the proper technique while displaying beauty is tremendous. She dances in group pieces and is often selected for solo performances as well, including classical ballet variations and contemporary pieces.
Brooke’s tremendous effort comes together in the form of shows, competitions and benefit performances. She typically dances in four shows a year, competes in several intense regional competitions and generously dances for local benefits. Her two most recent benefit performances were for the victims of Hurricane Sandy and the Philippines Typhoon. She has performed “The Nutcracker”, “Alice in Wonderland” “Bravo” among others. In January, she competed in the NYCDA regionals and received the highest rating of Platinum for both her solo dances “Mary Poppins” and “Cupid”.
Most recently Brooke was selected to compete regionally at the distinguished Youth American Grand Prix in Providence, Rhode Island. Her group advanced to the final competition in New York City and will have the honor of performing at Lincoln Center in April.
Brooke also just traveled to New York to audition for a Summer Intensive Program at the famous Steps on Broadway. She was accepted into the prestigious program and will spend three weeks this summer training 8 hours a day learning with the best. She was also accepted into the American Ballet Theater Summer Intensive Program and will be spending three weeks training at The University of Alabama.
We are exceptionally proud of this lovely young lady and commend her for her hard work and determination, and congratulate her on her success!
Christ is the reason for this school, the unseen but ever present teacher in its classes, the model of its faculty, and the inspiration for its students.
At St. Louis School this greeting welcomes all who enter. It is a proclamation of our Catholic faith that drives the vision and mission of the comprehensive, high school preparatory education that St. Louis School has provided for more than 90 years.
