Helping us out with the festival this year is our lovely intern Athena Lewis!
Originally from the United States, Athena completed most of her dance training at a CityDance conservatory where she gained exposure to artists such as Ronen Koresh, Rob Priore, Ronald K. Brown, Maleek Washington, and many more. She has also attended many summer intensives throughout the US, and she is thankful to have moved to Vancouver after finishing a year at Florida State University. Currently, Athena is taking prerequisites for naturopathic medical school as well as working towards her BFA in dance at Simon Fraser University. She hopes to someday become a permanent resident of Canada and continue to be a working artist in her field.
