Friday Update!

What’s On this weekend??

From the Facebook updates online, I am so happy to hear that Shade’s Vamps in the Mist party went so well last night!  I am sure there will be pics online soon for those of us who were unable to attend!

And this time of year brings out so many fabulous events, it’s hard to be at everything! And this weekend has two workshop options for you as well as some fabulous pottery shopping – what to do, what to do!

In any case, have a great one!

Back by popular demand. This popular workshop provides instruction on all the techniques and skills required to use weighted veils in your favourite choreography. From basic movements to complex combinations, incorporating dance movement with the dynamic movement of the veils. Weighted veils are rapidly becoming the prop of choice for many performers wishing to achieve a more dramatic effect in dance or to add a new visual element to performances.

Cost for the first 2 hours, 1:15-3:15: $35

The 3rd hour, 3:15-4:15, is for those wishing to develop ideas for choreographies and freestyle performances. The cost will be $15 and there must be at least 6 participants. You must have attended the first 2 hours or have taken a previous Weighted Veils workshop.
