On this episode of DLEW, I talk with Bashaun Williams, dancer with Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company.
A dancer is always growing and learning throughout their entire career. It’s how you grow that makes the difference. Join us on this episode to hear about Bashaun’s journey and his pursuit of perfection.
Bashaun Williams started dancing at the age of 16 in Texas with Ballet Lubbock under Yvonne Racz-Key, Artistic Director. As a Junior and Senior, he was captain of his Basketball team and a member of Ballet Lubbock’s pre- professional Company. Bashaun attended the University of Utah of both academic and artistic merit scholarships, in the department of ballet. While at the U, he danced Principal and Soloist roles in the department’s resident company. Throughout his career, Bashaun has had the pleasure of working with renowned choreographers such as Eddy Toussaint, Stevan Novakovich, Edward Truitt, Val Caniparoli, Rick Tija, Johannes Weiland, Bill T. Jones, Charlotte Boye-Christensen, Doug Varone and Daniel Charon, among others.
