During this past long weekend, Kai-Chi She, an award-winning young ballerina from Mount Pleasant’s GOH Ballet took to the streets on her bike as the lead actress in some dramatic scenes for the UpCYCLEd Stories movie. Here are some behind-the-scenes photos.
Kai-Chi (born 2006) is a passionate and cheerful young girl, as well as a devoted dancer who has been under pre-professional ballet training since the age of 5. She has been cast in two productions of Goh Ballet’s the Nutcracker, assuming the roles of the Little Mouse and the Party Girl, and she will appear once again as a Party Girl in this year’s upcoming beloved holiday classic. In 2016, Kai-Chi participated for the first time in the Chilliwack Lions Club Music and Dance Festival and placed first in both classical ballet and contemporary solos in the 9-year age division. She also entered the Youth America Grand Prix semifinals in Las Vegas and was awarded Top 12 in both classical and contemporary dance categories for the pre-competitive division. While spending most of her time training for dance, Kai-Chi also loves drawing, reading and writing very imaginative stories.
