Sentinels – Kyrsten Blair
Gently moving sculptures hold space, guide, and serve to protect. Witnesses to sacred silence, postural feelings, stories, and understanding, we reflect back.
Kyrsten Blair graduated with her BFA in Drama and Dance from the University of Calgary in 1994, and is a prominent member of Calgary’s dance community. She has filled the roles of performer, movement educator, sessional instructor, choreographer, rehearsal director, yoga studio owner, arts consultant, and outreach coordinator. Having trained and/or performed across Canada, the USA, Cuba, and Indonesia, movement traditions rooted in Contemporary, Jazz, Improvisation, Yoga, Body Percussion, Musical Theatre, and Traditional Javanese Court Dance, are constant companions.
Her classes welcome students ranging in age from 4 weeks old to 92 years young, and embrace newcomers, emerging artists, late bloomers, and seasoned professionals. Recent presenters of her work include Equinox Vigil, Calgary Opera, Revv 52, The School of Creative and Performing Arts at the University of Calgary, Crossings Youth Dance Company, and The Professional Division of The School of Alberta Ballet.
