Every time I walk into a studio to take a dance class, or teach, or to rehearse. My senses are overwhelmed. Though I have little memory of my first dance class (ballet and I was 3), one of my strongest first memories of dance when I returned many years later was buying my first shoes. I was taking modern dance, so they were half-soles. They looked very different from what contemporary dancers wear today. They looked like this:

You can still purchase this style today!

I still can remember how they smelled and the feel of them on my feet when I would dance.

Tell us…..What is your first memory of dance?

This week’s post is about YOUR idea of the perfect Sunday.

Sundays for me have always represented dance. Here is my idea of a perfect Sunday:

In the morning I would get up late and meet up with some of my closest friends for brunch. Following that I would go to rehearsal for Kinetic Elements and then teach classes to my students. After an afternoon of rehearsal and classes, I would drive with Adam and Parker to my mom’s house where we would have dinner with my family. Where we would have roast beef (not Adam of course) and strawberry shortcake for dessert! MMmMMMmmMMMmmMM

The End

What would your perfect Sunday look like?

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! Sign up today at kendra@kendrahughes.com.

When: Sundays January 16 – March 6, 2011

3-4pm

Where: George  Brown College Casa Loma Campus

160 Kendal Ave, Toronto ON

Building C, Studio D

Stay tuned for announcements for the new year! Lots of good things to come!

Happy Holidays and Be Safe!
