Ottawa Dancers’ Newsletter – 2018/01/20

Experience Dance through Learning or Watching

Welcome back to the second blog edition of the Dancers Newsletter.  The week has flown by quickly for me, as I have had long days at the office and everything is pretty much a blur.  Luckily, I have the opportunity to teach dance again and cannot work long days on Monday and Thursday.  Thank you to everyone who have joined classes across Ottawa-Gatineau; it’s always great to see returning students and fresh faces.  At this time of year, it’s really beneficial to get out and move.  Although, I’m very biased, dance is probably one of the best ways to help push back the seasonal lows we can experience while the days slowly creep back to being longer and warmer.  It’s also a great excuse to get out and social with our dance friends and wear shiny skirts, belts or fun class wear.

Speaking of getting out to dance there are opportunities to learn and opportunities to watch some of the dance things coming up in our community, outside of the classes.

Last week I mentioned, the Workshop with Carina at Studio Oasis in Gatineau.  That is still happing and you can see the details here for your refresher.  I may see you there as I enjoyed her performance of the choreography she plans on teaching and I liked some of the combinations she does.

New things that are coming up after Carina’s workshop are the Shimmy Sangha event where you can participate in free dancing or socializing and the Fête Frisson that has a Bollywood performance by Puja and her Kids Bollywood class.  Details are below and as well as on the “Upcoming Events & Workshops” page of this site.  Happy dancing!
