Biographical history

Charlotte Wright was born in Trail, British Columbia on July 14, 1935. At the age of fifteen, she attended the Banff School of Fine Arts for the first time, after which she was invited to attend classes in Toronto at Gweneth Lloyd’s school. She continued to train at the Banff School of Fine Arts for six summers. After teaching and demonstrating with the Canadian School of Ballet in Toronto, she was invited to perform with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet in the Spring of 1953. She joined the RWB that Fall as a member of the corps de ballet. During this time, she appeared in a variety of stage performances in Toronto, including a University of Toronto production of Brigadoon. She also appeared on television. She was promoted to soloist in 1955, which was her final year dancing with the RWB.
