On Saturday, November 19th the RWBS will be performing at Dance Manitoba’s annual Members’ Showcase. This event is dedicated to the promotion of dance and dance education in Manitoba. The Showcase Concert provides an opportunity for dancers to experience performing on stage in a professional environment and for Manitobans to sample the range and diversity of dance talent in Manitoba. The variety of dance disciplines represented at the Showcase Concert include jazz, modern, tap, ballet, hip hop, belly dance and musical theatre, just to name a few.
This performance will be held at the Pantages Playhouse Theatre and is open to the general public. The RWBS will be showing Celtic Spirits, choreographed by former RWB dancer and current RD teacher Patti Caplette and danced by Brigitte Baragar, Camila Schujman, Nina Huynh, Natasha Osawa and Giulia Severini.
We love sharing exciting news that happens to our very own staff!
Ms Laurie Alston was recently invited to perform with Cirque Du Soleil’s show Love (Beatles show) in Vegas as a dancer. She was unable to take the contract because...... she is expecting her 3rd child in early March! Congratulations Laurie!
The great news continues! Ms Aimee Brasko is ALSO pregnant and due in late March! Congratulations Aimee! We are happy that Julie Gregorchuk will be taking over her classes for the remainder of the year.
On October 13th and 14th, the RWBS was pleased to present contemporary guest teacher, Stephanie Rutherford to our Intermediate and Senior Jazz Dance Ensembles. Ms Rutherford, a native of Winnipeg, creates contemporary jazz work within the Toronto dance scene and is a resident teacher for Metro Movement Dance Studio in Toronto. The students enjoyed her challenging classes and were shown a new style of dance.
