Congratulations to Miss Izel for receiving the Ultimate Definite Threat Award in the senior category at Triple Threat Dance Convention this past weekend (October 12 & 13) . Not only did she leave it all out on the dance floor, she got to do so under the tutelage of an amazing faculty - Michelle Dawley, Comfort Fedoke, Jillian Meyers, and Anthony Russo. Well done, Izel! Much deserved, and we’re so proud of you!
We’re so proud to be able to contribute to an organization like the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre with Candance North America. As you all know, Miss Hannah’s Season 10 Contemporary piece “Pressure” won the National People’s Choice Award for Candance; and as a result we were able to choose a charity to receive $1000 donation.
We chose the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Center. Debbie Noce, from Candance, came to our studio today, along with our Dancers, to present a cheque to Mark Jones, CEO of the CACAC. We would like to thank Mark, and everyone involved at the CACAC for all they do for children in our community. You are a vital part of Central Alberta. 💙 Please check out their website for more information and provide support in any way you can. You can learn more about them here.
We are so proud to have been awarded the People’s Choice Title Winner for Candance 2019. What an incredible honor and a beautiful cap to our Tenth Season. Miss Hannah’s Award-Winning piece, “Pressure,” won the Candance North America People’s Choice Award; which also means that $1000 will be donated to our charity of choice Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre. You can learn more about both of them through the links.
Thank you to everyone who voted for and enjoyed Pressure, and thank you for supporting us. We’re so proud of Miss Hannah and all of our Dancers who worked hard throughout the year on this number. You all deserve a standing ovation. Congratulations!!! 💙💙💙💙💙

There are so many memorable pieces of choreography from the past 10 years that we want to celebrate. When it comes to Halloween, one piece of Choreography from Miss Jaimie really stands out in our collective memory. Here is a look behind the scenes of this special number - the one that pushed Miss Jaimie way outside of her comfort zone; in the best way. Thank you for celebrating our 10 Year Anniversary with us; and Happy Halloween! 👻🎃💙
One of our Founding Members recently attended a 4 week Ballet Intensive at the National Ballet School in Toronto, after auditioning.

We couldn't be more proud of you and all you have accomplished so far in your dancing Veronica. Veronica has big goals that she is working towards, which you can read about in this article from the advocate. Keep Digging Deep, and Reaching High!
