Maegan Fram couldn’t be more proud of her dancers.

The owner of Project Dance recently had six girls selected to participate in the Quinte Ballet School’s summer program — something Fram calls a huge accomplishment.

The Belleville-based school opened its doors in 1972, and has since gone on to train countless renowned dancers.

“I’m very proud of them all,” Fram said. As an instructor, the accomplishment is “very reassuring and rewarding” for the school as a whole.

One of the dancers attending the three-week workshop is 13-year-old Olivia Colilli. “I feel special and honoured to be picked,” she said.

Despite her young age, Colilli has been dancing for 10 years. She said the opportunity to dance at Quinte is thrilling.

“I’m excited to work with these teachers who are known all over the world for ballet,” she said.

Of the 18 dancers that auditioned at Project Dance, six were selected. Joining Colilli are Hannah Longe, Gabrielle McGuire, Brooke Borton, Alexie Larochelle and Karine Boucher.
