Dancer of the Year Awards

Over the March 23, 24 & 25 Weekend, Claire, Veronica, Sydney, Hazel, Alexane and Eva all attended the 5678 Competition in Jasper, Alberta.  We're very proud of all of them; for the professionalism and honesty with which they represented Red Deer and Strive, as well as their sport of Dance; and for all the hard work they have put in.  They met new dancers, choreographers, Judges and more. They got to see a performance of Cirque Du Soleil Corteo, as well as meet some of the performers from Cirque and participate in Workshops with them.

As we always say, it's not about the awards, or the medals or the prizes, it's about the experience; the overall learning, growth and development that comes from everything they have done up to this point.  As Miss Judy always says, they've already won! Congratulations to all of you.
