Huge thank you to everyone who came to help us celebrate another fabulous year of dance :)

From burgers and hot dogs to fabulous salads and desserts - we had more than enough food to feed a plethora of wild dancers and their families :)

A special thank you to the Irish Club for loaning us your bbq!

The annual PGSID games involved some trash talk, rope burn, and many potatoes (if you aren’t familiar with ‘poop the potato, you need to join us next year!) - thanks to Tanya and Victoria for arranging all the games! So much fun was had that the games carried on well into 5:00 pm!!

Fabulous Irish dance chocolate cake - tasted as good as it looks!

RECITAL 2019!!

We had another amazing recital this past Saturday!

Our talented young dancers danced their hearts out, and put on what we’ve been told was our best recital ever!!

These young performers practiced all year long to show off their great choreographies to a full crowd of family and friends.

A HUGE thank you to our sponsor Bushwakker Brewing Company - your delicious beers and amazing door prizes were hits! (I think we have some #beerhunters amongst our dance family!)

Grades

We will have Grades classes over the summer for dancers interested in challenging a Grade between 1 through 6.

Novice/Prizewinner/Preliminary Championship Workshop

Rather than run a one-weekend workshop for dancers in our Belfast & Dublin classes, we will be starting their classes early, on August 1st. For the month of August, these dancers will jointly attend class from 6:30-8:30 in preparation for the coming year, and our Tyler Schwartz workshop.


Tyler Schwartz Workshop

We are so excited to share with you that we have arranged for the incredibly talented, “Mr. 10 clicks” himself, Tyler Schwartz to come to Regina and do a workshop with our dancers! We are expecting 100% attendance from our competitive dancers at this workshop.

The dates for the workshop will be September 13-15, 2019 so please mark your calendars!

Dancers for whom this is applicable will receive an email once the schedule is set.
**There won’t be regular classes this weekend, so dancers in our performance stream will have a rescheduled class at a later date.

St. Paddy's Day 2019

WOW!

Another amazing weekend of dancing is under our belts. A huge thank you and shout out to our parents and dancers who enabled us to provide over 18 performances in one weekend, well done all!!

We had wonderful feedback from our audience, our dancers truly know how to put on a show (or 18 as the case may be!). We instructors greatly enjoyed the weekend and appreciate how easy our dancers and parents made the whole weekend for us, thank you!
