The beautiful Washington Coast is an inspiration to many in the Pacific Northwest. While some are inspired to capture nature’s beauty through the camera lens, others try and recreate it on a blank canvas. Luis Mestas, the founder of Lighthouse Ballet Academy here in North Beach, has recently sparked a unique interest in ballet among the locals at Seabrook and Pacific Beach. So many kids enjoyed the ballet lessons that he is now holding a weekly ballet class at Pacific Beach Elementary!
Luis Mestas’ bio includes a masters degrees in education and teaching experience in the Los Angeles school system. He has studied in Russia, Latvia, and Estonia, and has performed with the Pasadena Dance Theater, the Asian American, Ballet company, and Marat Daukayev School of Ballet in LA. He is also a good friend of Arthur Egeli, a nationally recognized artist that moved to Seabrook recently.
Arthur is, in fact, working on an art piece of his own at the moment. He is in the process of completing his second mural – both will be hanging beside the entrance to Lil’s Pantry, Seabrook’s grocery store. Arthur’s work will be welcoming visitors to Seabrook since the Lil’s Pantry market is located at the beginning of Seabrook’ entrance, just across the street from the oceanfront Northwest Glen neighborhood.
