UM Homecoming Show

UM Homecoming Show

On September 25th, I had the great privilege of creating the 1/2 time show for the Bisons’ Home Opener at IG Field. Featuring Jeremy Koz and his band – Deep Dark Cave, a cast of over 100 performers breakdanced, tumbled and strutted their stuff for an enthusiastic crowd. Many thx to my partner in crime –  Natalie Sluis, the Blue Bomber Cheer Squad, Monica Goermann’s Momentum gymnasts and my terrific squad of dance performers. And of course a BIG SHOUT-OUT to U of M’s Stacy Wyatt for giving me the opportunity to make it all happen!!

Time Cut Choreography

Time Cut Choreography

I’m extremely excited to be working as choreographer on Ace Entertainment’s production of Time Cut, the latest in our province’s successful run of horror flicks. My experience as “Flashmob Queen of Manitoba” scored me the role and the opportunity to work with 11 of Manitoba’s finest dancers. We’re all set to bring this scene to life in July!

 

Coming soon….Highlights from Be More Chill

Coming soon….Highlights from Be More Chill

Our StudioWorks Sr. Academy has been working diligently since September on the incredible Joe Iconis/Joe Tracz musical – Be More Chill. This project has truly been a labour of love. We have had to navigate a myriad of obstacles and life events which has brought our company of emerging artists even closer together. I am so proud of what we have accomplished thus far, not only with our production, but with the generous and loving spirits which have emerged en masse. Our hearts and spirits are still reeling at the loss of one of our dear cast members, Amélie Barreto-Labossière but we are ‘doing her proud” with the virtual production we are about to share with everyone on June 24th!

Creative Manitoba Mentorship Program

Creative Manitoba Mentorship Program

 

I have just completed an 8-month mentorship program with the lovely and talented- Natalie Sluis. It has been a great honour to share my arts practice through the mentorship program offered by Creative Manitoba. Since October, my “mini-me” and I have met virtually, in person, or even in my backyard to create choreography, tackle theatre projects, write grants, plan for the future and ultimately serve as mutual support systems to each other. It has been quite a ride and is only the beginning. I see great things in Natalie’s professional future and applaud her hard work, energy, commitment and above all, passion for everything she does!!
