Whirlwind Month...

November has flown by so quickly and saw us split up into two groups several times this month.  We visited some pretty awesome schools and had a blast doing it.  I found this image on Facebook on The Cohes Falls and The Iroquois page.  They post some really interesting stuff there.

When we do school performances quite often we use the gym store room as a change room and I don't usually pay much attention to the equipment.  However this week at one of the schools I happened to notice this bin of rubber chickens and I thought to myself, "Now this is a fun school.  Clown class and everything."

One of the days Jacob came along to perform with us and we were split into two groups.  It was great having him and the students were so impressed to see a teenager on stage.

We were at Lisgar school and in the pod that we were doing our workshops in I saw this colourful wall of Morriseau style art.  They are all so beautiful.  Great job students!

Assumption College School

Yesterday was a busy day for us.  In order to work with school schedules we had to split the group and send 2 of us to Assumption and the other 2 to two other BHNCDSB schools.  (wow homonyms lol) Adrian and I had a great time at Assumption.  Because of space issues we ended up in Mrs Difelice's classroom for both of our workshops.  She was pretty great about it and several of her students would have had to take our workshop twice.  The three pictured above did elect to stick around and participate twice and we were grateful for the support.  They ended up leading out some of the dances and we had some good laughs.

Prologue for the Performing Arts: Tribal Vision

We are thrilled to doing performances in Toronto through Prologue.  We have completed our first week and it went quite well.  We haven't spent a lot of time in Toronto schools so this is new and exciting for us.  I must say the parking situation in the big city schools leaves much to be desired when you show up in a 15 passenger van.

We performed at the Prologue showcase in May and I found this video of our presentation.  Check it out here.
