Artistic Director Kendra Hughes and Kinetic Elements are pleased to announce auditions for a new youth company called Potential Elements!

Kinetic Elements is looking for young dancers under the age of 19 for a junior company called Potential Elements. The Junior Company will be formed for a training program titled The Mirror Project and it will look at the whole dancer; mind and body. This 11 week program will start March 20 and will run every Sunday from 1:00 pm- 4:00 pm. At the end of this program Potential Elements will perform at the Guelph Contemporary Dance Festival as part of the Youth Move Series at the River Run Centre on Sunday June 5, 2011.

Our mission statement is to train young dancers not only physically, but mentally and emotionally as well. We are dedicated to these young dancers by training them in contemporary dance, while also taking a look at the concept of beauty, and transcending the conventional ideas of beauty posed by society. Each week through dance and movement, Kendra Hughes along with members of Kinetic Elements, will facilitate classes on self-esteem, confidence, and creativity.

Kendra Hughes is the creator and artistic director of Kinetic Elements. She is a graduate of George Brown College and is a certified life skills coach. Kinetic Elements is a new and fresh contemporary modern dance company committed to exploring modern dance and fusing it with other dance forms. Kinetic Elements has performed throughout Toronto and vicinity at such events as Nuit Blanche, Choreographer’s Snow Ball, The Bazaar, Dance Ontario’s International Dance Day at Pearson International Airport and last year presented their full length production Eternal Eclipse at Toronto’s Fringe Festival.
