Last week it was announced that our very own Graham Kotowich has been awarded the Indspire Métis Youth Award for his work in dance & career achievement and as an outstanding indigenous Canadian role model. The Indspire Awards, formerly know as the National Aboriginal Achievement Awards, are to celebrate the significant contributions of Indigenous people in Canada.
Ballet master Daniel de Andrade, Academy Manager Hannah Kirkpatrick, soloist Ashley Dixon and dancers Jessica Morgan, Rym Kechacha and Graham Kotowich tell of their romantic natures and celebrity Valentine's. Apologies for the variable audio quality in this video.
In honour of Shrove Tuesday 2010 (Pancake Day), we put our dancers pancake flipping skills to the test in the studio earlier today. Graham Kotowich, Tobias Batley, Sebastian Loe and Ashley Dixon limbered up for a pancake race, before displaying their individual flipping skills! Were still not sure who the clear winner was either!
