The Ottawa Centre Class Party – what a way to end the season!

Hey Kids,
I have finally recovered enough to start looking at pics and video from our fabulous show on Wednesday June 10th. You ladies rock! Or Rak as the the pun goes!

So what does this mean for the blog post? It means that I will direct you all to the little final video clip that my good friend Linda took of many of us at the end of the show! Click on the still image to take you there!

Colour and motion - can you hear the music?

It also means I will say a huge sloppy thank you to so many people – I hope I have not forgotten anyone, but someone can leave me a word in the comments in case I did!

    Hi Tracey!

    I just wanted to thank you so much for all the work I’m sure you put in to organizing the show on June 10th. It was all so beautiful.
    I was one of Sha’Vega’s beginner students and when I signed up for that class, I never imagined I would be performing in front of anyone, let alone on a stage in front of hundreds. While I was very nervous before, during (especially), and even after we performed, I am so happy to be able to say I did it and I plan on performing with her intermediate class if there is another show!

    So thank you so much for giving us all such an amazing opportunity!

    -Anna F.

    P.S. Your performance was stunning!
