Genette Terez received her early training at the Royeca School of Ballet in General Santos City under the directorship of Girlie S. Royeca. Barbara Rodriguez Rodge was inspired by the talent of the young girl and was instrumental in training her and supporting her dream of becoming a ballerina.
Artistic Director Girlie S. Royeca offered the then twelve-year-old Ms. Terez a scholarship to her internationally recognized Royeca School of Ballet in Davao City, Mindanao Philippines. In addition to training to become a professional dancer, she was enrolled in the Teacher Training program. She assisted at all levels graduating in 2011 and received her first post as a primary teacher, handling classes for pre-school, Ballet 1, Ballet 2, and Ballet 3. Her gentle disposition and inherent kind nature encourages students of all levels to aspire to do their best.
Aristic Directors Gregory Aaron and Nicolas Pacana first worked with Ms. Terez in 2005. Immediately she was put into special coaching sessions, working closely with the directors to mold and train her to achieve her true potential. In 2009, she was selected as the Davao City champion of the Regional NAMCYA (National Music Competition for Young Artists) Ballet competition and represented Mindanao at the Cultural Center of the Philippines held in Manila.
Her repertoire includes an eclectic mix of classical and contemporary ballets. Principal roles include: Clara, Arabian and Sugar Plum Fairy from the Nutcracker, Princess Arial in the Little Mermaid, and Princess Aurora from The Sleeping Beauty. She has the honour of being one of the last three ballerinas to dance with International Premier Danseur Nicolas Pacana as Juliet in his 2012 farewell performances of Romeo and Juliet.
On April 2013, she joined Balletcenter Cebu as a Principal dancer and debuted in the role of Odette in Artistic Director Nicolas Pacana’s Philippine premiere of Swan Lake.
