Miss Charissa’s life long friend will be returning to Toronto this March as a guest artist with The National Ballet of Canada! Evan McKie is a Principal Dancer with Stuttgart Ballet, as well as a photographer, choreographer and guest writer for DANCE magazine, New York. Most recently he was a guest artist in Onegin at Paris Opéra Ballet and the Universal Ballet in Seoul, South Korea. “Of all of today’s dance stars, McKie is one of the very brightest” hailed Danse Magazine, Paris.

The Sleeping Beauty marked Mr. McKie’s debut with The National Ballet of Canada, and the first time he has danced in Canada since he was a child. Evan attended The National Ballet School of Canada, where his friendship with Miss Charissa first began.

This March, Toronto dance enthusiasts will have another opportunity to watch one of the very brightest international dance stars of today perform the lead role of Siegfried in Swan Lake on March 8th, 13th, and 16th. 

Hope to see you there!
