Perpetual Motion Dance Studio Inc. 2018 Christmas Demonstration and more!
Join us for an afternoon of dance at Convocation Hall, Sunday December 16thfrom 1 pm – 3pm as we share what our dancers, young and old alike, have learned this fall. Dancers will be performing short numbers in multiple styles including ballet, jazz, tap, contemporary, hip hop, breakdancing and more. Tickets will be available at Tidewater Books, Perpetual Motion Dance Studio and at the door the day of the event.
The members of the Perpetual Motion Dance Troupe will be performing solos, duos, and group pieces that were performed at DanceQuest competition this fall. The PMDT dancers won a total of 20 medals out of 25 entries, ranging from gold to bronze. Additionally, a scholarship was awarded to Myetta Breen, and a special award was given to Claire Reinsborough-Wadden and Nina Lundrigan for their duo, titled “Ode to Leonard Cohen”.
“Great things have been happening to our dancers and small-town studio.” Shares artistic director, Renee Rioux. “Aside from our overwhelming success at DanceQuest, two of our junior troupe members have been chosen for the Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s summer dance program, Brigid Morris of Springhill Nova Scotia and Naiya Istvanffy from Dorchester” says Renee Rioux.
Naiya – daughter of Mark Istvanffy and Amanda Feindel, owners of the Cackling Goose here in Sackville – was the only dancer from the Atlantic Provinces to be awarded a $2000.00 scholarship from the Royal Winnipeg Ballet towards the summer dance program. Naiya is one of 11 young dancers throughout Canada to have been chosen for this prestigious award.
“Also one of our graduates, Leah Wilton, is presently at the School of Toronto Dance Theatre in Toronto, where she is studying to become a professional dancer. All this beautiful growth at PMDS would not be possible without my wonderful talented dance instructors, parents’ support and the dancers themselves” Says Renee.
Rioux’s pride in the studio and sense of gratitude has spread to her senior level dancers who have taken the initiative to host some dance workshops for local dancers during the holidays. Each troupe member has prepared dance combos of various styles that they will be teaching on December 27 and 28 from 9 – 4pm at Perpetual Motion Dance Studio. The fee is by donation and all proceeds will go towards PMDS’ new production of “Pinocchio”, which will take place in May 2019. The workshops are open to all dancers with at least 3 years of dance experience ages 12 and up. Follow our Facebook page from more information with regards to this two-day event!
