This week Central School of Ballet Phnom Penh hosted two exclusive ballet master classes with San Francisco Ballet's Shannon Marie Rugani.
Shannon trained at San Francisco Ballet School on a full merit scholarship prior to being named as an apprentice in 2004. She joined the Company in 2005 and has performed featured roles in Tomasson’s Swan Lake and The Sleeping Beauty, Caniparoli’s Ibsen’s House, and Robbins’ West Side Story Suite. Her repertory also includes works by George Balanchine, David Bintley, Michel Fokine, William Forsythe, James Kudelka, Mark Morris, Paul Taylor, and Christopher Wheeldon, among others. Ms Rugani has danced all over the world including France, Iceland, China, Denmark and the USA.
Ms Rugani shared her knowledge, experience and passion with all the students both young and old challenging then to new heights and inspiring her love of dance in the next generation.
Thank you Shannon
