My name is Andrew Kyrzyk and I have danced professionally in BTA’s Checkmate and Carmen. I absolutely loved working with Vlad & the other talented artists involved. I was introduced to Vlad & BTA through my friend, Jade Whitney. Being new to Toronto and eager to train and work, I was fortunate to be cast in Checkmate, one of my first professional shows in Toronto. I learned so much from the experience as Vlad trusted me as a dancer and he taught me SO much about partnering and artistry. This has helped with my career today as a working male dancer, as I am often partnering and lifting. I am now dancing and choreographing in various TV and film productions. I would highly recommend BTA to any dance artist wanting to continue growing & training from the best, while dancing in a show that feels like a family, like a community. As an audience member, I would highly recommend Vlad’s BTA shows to anyone who appreciates art and movement. I remember going to see BTA’s Alice, and I was completely moved by the performance. I was blown away! Thanks Vlad for everything!
