About the Artists:
The Gemini award-winning actor was a leading soloist with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet for many years before she retired to study acting full time. She starred in Dirty Dancing and was stunt double for Kate Beckinsale and Milla Jovovich and now appears regularly onstage and screen. She is thrilled to “back in the boots” in the city she called home for 10 years!!
“Calgary musician Evan Freeman’s debut album Luna is quite possibly one of the most ambitious and successfully so works of epic musical art to come out of this city in years if not decades — a masterfully sculpted piece of pop-informed shoegazing wonderment that is as intricate and realized and brilliant as it is pretty and pleasurable and spiritually uplifting. It changes things.”
-Mike Bell, Calgary Herald
DJ Sheen Sayer
Born in Brandon, raised in Winnipeg. Has loved dance music more than milk since his inception on planet Earth. Now, this prairie space cowboy or “Da Vinci of the Discotheque” spins this innate passion over dance floors for humanoids righteous enough to listen.

will explore what it feels like to have an idea through movement and music!
What do you do with an idea? Do you think about an idea and let it grow? Does your idea get bigger? Faster? Bouncier? Smaller? Harder to recognize? What happens if you let an idea go? Does it float away? What if you give it a little push?

The Mitzvah Technique and Itcush Method:
The Mitzvah Technique and Itcush Method is a new approach to learn movement and function of the body. Focusing on the alignment and mechanics of the body, we learn to release unnecessary tension and find efficient movement with minimum effort. Concentrating on fundamental movements by learning exercises on the floor and using a chair we allow the body to return to its ideal movement, function and freedom to expand movement possibility.
Specific benefits for dancers are:
• Learn exercises that help open and release unnecessary tension in the joints and muscles
• Bring more awareness of your own body and movement
• Find a better relationship with the floor so that you can feel and understand the forces acting in your body
• Return to an optimal postural alignment that will prolong your health and
prevent pain and injuries
