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.
Every year the RWBS chooses a couple dance conventions to promote to our students in an effort to expose them to other teachers and styles of dance and choreography. It is necessary to attend these sorts of conventions, for any student who wishes to excel at dance and be the best dancer they can be. They also provide the opportunity for the students to meet other dancers and make connections in the dance world.
Both 5678 Showtime and IDance, are weekend events which provide the students with about 4-5 dance classes per day. 5678 Showtime also sports a competition over the course of their event, that our Jazz and Tap Dance Ensembles will be competing at. These extra performance opportunities are also important for the overall growth of the dancers in these disciplines.
These conventions are open to the majority of the levels within the school. Should you wish to register your child for these unique opportunities, all registrations must be done through the School Office, no later than December 5th. All Jazz and Tap Dance Ensemble students will receive detailed information in their Festival package regarding these conventions; however ALL RWBS students are invited to attend as outlined below.
Convention $122.00/per student – This convention is open to all students in Level 3 Jazz and up
$225/student age 13 and up as of February 5th
This convention is open to Level 6A jazz and up as well as Intermediate Dance Ensemble.
