“That’s Art” and “CDC Live” 2015
That’s a wrap on the Canadian Dance Company’s 30th anniversary year end shows for both the Oakville and Burlington locations! With 6 shows combined, it can truly be said that this conclusion to the 2014/15 dance season was an epic one, entertaining more than thousand audience members.
“That’s Art” featured dancers from the Oakville location, incorporating some of the most creative and high calibre recreational routines in CDC history, along with breathtaking Part Time and Full Time Competitive performances. Taking place at The Living Arts Centre’s Hammerson Hall, “That’s Art” featured performers from as young as age 2, all the way up to adults.
“CDC Live” celebrated the Canadian Dance Company’s first season operating the Burlington location. Showcasing the tremendous growth of dancers of all levels, “CDC Live” had audience members cheering and delighted by the compelling mix of a variety of dance styles.
Unique to CDC, both the Oakville and Burlington locations joined together to commemorate the 30th Anniversary at the annual Red Carpet event. Prior to this show, featuring the Canadian Dance Company’s top competitive and recreational routines, dancers and audience members were invited to walk the red carpet and have their photo taken amongst their friends and family. YTV’s Carlos Bustamente, along with Bree Wasylenko (Kate from “The Next Step”), hosted both the red carpet arrival and show portion of the evening. Intertwined with spectacular performances, the C.O.R.E. Team, along with some of the CDC faculty members, presented awards to students who stood out in their achievements this season. Amongst the winners were Devon Brown and Brittany Cayuga who were presented with the “Character First” awards for Oakville and Burlington respectively, and Myles Erlick and Josh Lamp who won the “Overall Full Time Achievement” awards for their studios.
Each year, the staff at the Canadian Dance Company work hard to improve and enhance the year end shows. We are already excited about what is being prepared for 2016!
