Winnipeg opened its arms to the rest of Canada on July 28th, 2017 with the Opening Ceremonies of the Canada Games ; I had the good fortune of working alongside PRP Productions in the role of Performer liaison which meant I helped secure and rehearse thousands of volunteer performers to dance and sing in the Canada 150-themed event. It was a complete blast! WST’s own StudioWorks Academy was featured as support vocalists in the “Tribute to Manitoba” segment featuring Bros Landreth and RWB dancers Yosuke Mino and Alanna Mcadie. The large production numbers choreographed by PRP choreographer, Jocelyn Peden wowed the crowd and allowed the talents of our local dance community to shine through. I was particularly proud of my All Abilities Dancers who danced in two segments: Electric Love (Serena Ryder) and Summer Heat (Coeur du Pirate). Hats off to the wonderful staff, crew and support team of PRP and Canada Games.
You did us proud!
