Festival Information

Date: Saturday, April 13, 2019
Times & Location: 10:00am to 5:00pm at 7 Generations Event Centre (entrance at the lower level)

All DWK Dance Foundations, Primary, Junior, Senior, and Ensemble classes participate in KDFA. We are also joined by a number of entries from Dryden’s Stage Door Studio. Dancers perform their dance and then return to the stage, along with all performers in their session, to receive feedback from the adjudicator. After their adjudication dancers are free to leave (or can stay to watch).

If your dancer is sick or there is an emergency on the day of the performance
please notify Erin at info@danceworkskenora.com or by texting 807-464-3666.

Backstage helpers are needed for…
The classes below require 1-2 parents backstage to ensure they stay together, have their proper hair and costume, assist with any quick changes, etc. All other parents drop their dancer off at the backstage area and then proceed to the theatre area if staying to watch. This limits the distractions and congestion backstage for the dancers and volunteers.

If you are able to volunteer backstage please email Erin at info@danceworkskenora.com

Festival Workshops
Brenda Gorlick is leading musical theatre workshops (singing and dancing!) on Sunday, April 14 at DanceWorks Kenora. Workshop cost is $25 (including HST) and workshops are scheduled as Primary/Junior (ages 7 to 13) at 10:00-11:30 am and Senior/Adult (ages 13+) at 1:30-3:00 pm. Registration is open to everyone at danceworkskenora.com or through your DWK portal account.

There will be a $4 charge at the door, please be prepared with correct change if possible. In order to limit distractions to the dancers and the adjudicator please enter and exit only in the breaks between performances and not while dancers are on stage.

Costumes, Hair & Makeup
Please double check that you have all components of your costume, including your proper dance shoes, clean tights, hair supplies, and makeup prepared for Festival. You can review the requirements for each class in the 2019 Costume, Hair & Makeup note available under “News” on danceworkskenora.com

KDFA Dance Schedule

Dancers should arrive at least 45 minutes prior to their performance time with hair and makeup already done. Please plan to change when you arrive (costumes should not be worn to and from the performance). Classes need to be together, ready, and warmed-up 15 minutes prior to their session start time and will remain backstage immediately after their performance until the completion of the on-stage adjudication for their session. Once their adjudication is complete dancers are free to leave.
