Hi DWK families,

I hope everyone continues to be healthy and safe at home.

Zoom Online Classes

The April Zoom class schedule continues through this Saturday with the same links as sent out previously. The schedule will be changing for May and that will be sent out this weekend. If you have any suggestions on class times or styles please let me know! If you haven’t been joining the Zoom classes but would like to start please feel free! We do new exercises quite often so you don’t have to worry about not knowing the steps and it’s a great way to connect with your fellow dancers. Remember, dancers can do any style – even if it is one that they don’t normally take.

Colouring Contest Winners

Congratulations to Azalea for winning the “Amazing Artist” award. Her entries in the colouring contest were fantastic! She has won a copy of Inglenook Studio’s “My Kenora” and “Lake of the Woods” colouring books as well as a DWK t-shirt.

Random draw winners, who have won a DWK t-shirt, also included Addaleena, Alyah, Ariella, Ellie, Elyas, Laura, Leia, and Maelle.

Congrats everyone and thanks for participating.

Studio Challenge #3

The next studio challenge is all about your love of dance and being part of the dance studio community. Every 10 points earns you one entry to win DWK clothing and an 8×10 print of one of your dance class group photos! Thanks to Colleen Serban for contributing to this draw prize. (PS. Thank you to everyone for your patience on the dance photos as they took a backseat to other pandemic related rescheduling, etc. The gallery link is being prepared now and we should be able to send that out to everyone soon!)

You can see an example of Ms. Erin’s “Pass the Slipper” video posted on the DanceWorks Kenora Instagram and Facebook pages.

Recital Update

While we had originally hoped to delay Recital and to at least be able to bring in each class individually to video their routine and create a Recital DVD we now know that just isn’t going to be possible in any time frame that makes sense. I am so proud of the dancers and the amount of work that they put in during the year and I am sad that they will not be able to perform with their classes and to showcase their progress together.

However, while we can’t dance together I am encouraging dancers to start practicing now for what will be the final studio challenge of the season. Dancers that send in a video performing their class routine, in costume and with proper hair, will be entered in a draw to win a $300 credit towards next year’s dance class tuition! The number of class credits awarded will depend on the total number of entries. Get practicing! (Need to review your dance, the links for the choreography videos are in FlipGrid for each class)
