2014 Charlotte Glencross Scholarship for Professional Development in the Arts: Winner Announced

The Charlotte Street Arts Centre is pleased to announce that a winner has been selected for the 2014 Charlotte Glencross Scholarship for Professional Development in the Arts. A jury of arts professionals met to review the scholarship applications and selected Cara Roy as this year's recipient. Ms Roy is currently studying dance at École de danse contemporaine de Montréal (EDCMTL), which offers a full-time, three-year Diploma of Collegial Studies in collaboration with the Cégep du Vieux Montréal. She will be formally presented with the scholarship in late December when she returns home to Fredericton for the holidays.

The Charlotte Glencross Scholarship for Professional Development in the Arts, which honours the late artist, arts educator and activist Charlotte Glencross, aims to support developing practitioners in the arts. The scholarship is open to all age categories and disciplines, where an artist or craftsperson seeks to build upon a new practice or establish a new direction in their work. The scholarship is in the amount of $1,000.

Cara Roy began her dance journey at the age of three, and acquired her early formal dance training at Artemis Dance, in the Charlotte Street Arts Centre. She has trained with a variety of dance teachers in Fredericton, including Dianne Garrett, Julie Scriver, Lesandra Dodson, Ginny Steeves and Kyle Gartshore. She has also participated in multiple master classes and out-of-province summer intensives such as Dance Summer Dans and the 2012 EDCMTL Summer Intensive by invitation. In 2013, she was accepted into the EDCMTL's three-year pre-professional training program. She is also a passionate teacher, having worked as a teaching assistant to Dianne Garrett at Artemis Dance since 2007, and as a guest instructor during her visits home. 

The Charlotte Street Arts Centre offers sincerest congratulations to Cara Roy and all the best for her continued development as a professional artist!
