Free Flow Dance Theatre June 2009 Newsletter
We have had a very busy start to 2009 so far and things are looking just as busy for the next few months ahead!
In March we held our annual Naughty Bingo which was a sold out hit! Thanks to all of our sponsors and to the DSI centre for helping to make it such a big hit! Check out the website gallery for candid photos!
We began Free Flow rehearsals in the new building in April and since then have started our first session of classes! We are offering: Sketch Class, Modern, Contact, Ballet, Yoga, Belly Fit, Booty Conditioning, Burlesque and a Dance Sampler class. The schedule is posted on the website on the training page. More classes will be offered this September including Mime and Advanced Ballet
April was also Discomania! For a first time event this party really rocked the town! Almost everyone in attendance arrived in their best Disco themed gear! Bad hairdos, flared pants and polyester abounded! The party goers strutted their stuff during the Hustle lesson and made waves during the disco dance contest! Prizes including a trophy for 1st place and silver and bronze medals were awarded to the top dancers. Pictures from the party can be seen in our photo gallery.
April 30 to May 2nd marked the 1st Movers and Shakers festival in Saskatchewan. Free Flow Dance Theatre was honored to be the host company for this wonderful showcase of professional SK dancers! Three days of jam packed performances and workshops was the fabulous result! We rounded it all up with a pancake breakfast at the new studio on the 3rd. Photos from the festival will be posted soon.
May was a month of serious training for the company as they prepare to present A Dark Faerie Tale in June at Saskatoon Schools. Workshops will also coincide with the performances. Performances will take place at Georges Vanier and The French School.
Back Alley Antics III is scheduled for Saturday June 20th at 7:30pm. Meet up at the Broadway Roastery Cul-de-sac parking lot and join us for a romp down the back alleys! A variety of artists will be featured along the way.
June 27th is the Grand Opening for Free Flow Dance Centre! Come join us and help to celebrate the official opening of our new home! Entrance is FREE! The event will begin at 7pm. There will be entertainment, dancing and a cash bar will also be available! Check out our new digs and enjoy a beverage!
July 5th Free Flow Dance Theatre will be featured at the Mendel Art Gallery in Saskatoon as a part of their Something on Sundays programming. We will present a new version of “a small piece of sky” with live music composed by Lia Pas. The performances will take place at a variety of times between 2-4pm on the Mendel grounds outside. This event is Free.
Also look for a special guest appearance by Free Flow Dancers at the Rosebud Burlesque Club's Fringe show at the Saskatoon Fringe Festival this summer!
The space is coming along very well! The floors have been refinished, bathrooms painted and all is looking very good! We are still in need of large mirrors and our antiquated stereo is on its last limbs… Our wish list also includes a vaccum cleaner and costume storage bins and racks. Gift cards to various &lqduo;Home” stores will also be happily accepted! If you are low on cash but stocked with Airmiles; Rona Gift cards can be purchased by redeeming Airmiles online and are super useful to us right now!
