NIGHT AT THE CIVIC AWARDS

Congratulations to Annette Bakala who has received the Teen Honour in the Arts Award at the 44th Annual Kelowna Civic and Community Awards.

This is awarded to a youth who has made an outstanding contribution in Kelowna through cultural and/or artistic efforts.

The annual award ceremony recognizes volunteers, artists, athletes and business leaders that made significant contributions to the city in 2018. The award recipients were revealed at the City & Community Awards Night on Wednesday, April 24th at the Kelowna Community Theatre.

Yoga for Ballet Dancers

As a ballet dancer, you work very hard in the studio training certain muscles to do specific movements. This means that the targeted muscles will get sore and possibly affect your training. But now there’s a new class at MDC made for relaxing and training correct muscles! It’s for Jr. and Sr. Company dancers (typically ages 13 – 19 some exceptions may apply) and has been added to our Pre-Professional Program. We are calling it: STRETCH AND YOGA and it’s happening every Wednesday evening with Special Guests coming in to teach us stretching techniques! This class is a great way to unwind those tense muscles that seem to block your flexibility from progressing forward, and we will help you through each class while being mindful of YOUR limit. Each dancer will be in control of their progress with the help of our trained staff within this special class.
