Hello Supporters and Fans!

I’ve decided I want to blog more. Rather than just thinking about doing it, I’m starting right now.  I will be posting on this blog once a week for all of 2011.

I know it won’t be easy, but it might be fun, inspiring, awesome and wonderful. Therefore I’m promising to make use of The DailyPost, and the community of other bloggers with similar goals, to help me along the way, including asking for help when I need it and encouraging others when I can.

If you already read my blog, I hope you’ll encourage me with comments and likes, and good will along the way.

Signed,

Kendra
Artistic Director

 

Kinetic Elements performed this year as part of the Take Two Program at Series 8:08. Here is a short excerpt of the second performance in November. Feel free to leave some of your feedback as well!

How did you first get into dance? Did your parents put you into a class when you were a kid? Was dance offered at your high school? Was it from watching So You Think You Can Dance?

For me I first got into dance like most children. My mom put me into classes when I was a kid. I eventually I asked my parents to pull me out, because of the teacher. After that I kept on dancing. In my basement my friends and I would make up dances and perform them sometimes for our parents, friends and sometimes for no one. Dance quickly became an outlet for me – happy, sad, angry I have always been able to pour all my emotions into movement and express myself when words could not. Down the road I went to school for dance and have been able to make it my career and the rest is history.

We want to hear from you! Tell us your story? Why dance?

A big thank you to everyone who has supported us throughout 2010. What a great year it has been. We could not have done it without the dedication of our beautiful dancers, the contribution of our stage manager, our new students, everyone who bought a ticket to see one of our shows and YOU our fans! Thank you for your support!

For the holiday season, we are offering a deal for our new beginner contemporary dance classes starting in January 2011. Due to rental price increases and the new HST tax, Kinetic Elements will be raising their price in the new year. If you register for our new session before January 1, 2011 you can still pay the regular price of $80 for 8 classes! After January 1, 2011 the prices go up to $100 for our 8 week session. Don’t wait!
