Welcome to Spotlight - North Dakota Ballet Company’s (NDBC) docuseries that highlights individuals who make extraordinary contributions to the art of dance in the Greater Grand Forks community.
The series idea began in the summer of 2019 when Eller Bonifacio, director of ELITE Dance Crew and instructor at NDBC, pitched the idea to Laura Arneson, director of NDBC, to showcase different perspectives from people who all love dance.
Many of us think that dance is primarily steps and techniques but that’s only part of it. The first episode features Lauren Paulson who is newly appointed as school administrator and leads the Youth Ballet Program at NDBC. Her enthusiasm for dance and our youth is vital and it shows in NDBC’s many productions. We hope you get inspired to join the artistry of dance in our community.
