Uptown Dance Centre is excited to announce a ballet master class with Texas Ballet Theater principal dancer Andre Silva in January 2018. Andre returns to UDC to create two world premieres. The new works will be performed to live music during UDC’s spring show Hidden Dimensions with Axiom Quartet.

Born in Brasilia, Brazil, Andre Silva began training at age 4 with his mother at the Royal Academy of Dance. He continued his training at The Harid Conservatory and Houston Ballet’s Ben Stevenson Academy. He was a Company member of Texas Ballet Theater from 2003 to 2009, where he was featured in leading roles of Ben Stevenson’s Peer Gynt, Romeo and Juliet, Swan Lake, Dracula, Vivaldi and Brittain pas-deux, Bartok, Preludes for Van, Five Poems and Mozart Requiem. Andre was the first recipient of the Booz Hamilton international “Rising Star Award” for excellence in dance and was a Silver Medalist at the International Ballet Competition in Shanghai, China. He has appeared as a guest artist at Houston’s Dance Salad and TITAS’ Festivals.

He joined Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montreal from 2009 to 2014, where he toured and expanded his repertoire dancing title roles of European choreographers such as Jiri Kylian, Mats Ek, Ohad Naharin, Stijn Celis, Stephan Thoss, Christian Spuck, Didy Veldman and Marco Goecke.

He joined Germany’s Ballet Augsburg for one year, where he was featured in principal roles in Young Soon-Hue’s Romeo and Juliet, Georg Reischl’s Verflixte Nähe, Stephen Shopshire’s Murmul and Spill and Angel Rodriguez’ Medea.

In 2015, Mr. Silva returned to Texas Ballet Theater.
