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!
