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?

It is hard to pick just one favourite moment in my career, but I wanted to share with you one of the moments in the past year that ranks as one of the top 3 for me. This year that Kinetic Elements performed at FAT: Fashion Alternative week in Toronto. The atmosphere was incredible. The crowd was packed, the music was blaring – you could feel the vibration in your bones and I got to walk down the runway! It was an amazing experience!

Thank you to FAT for having us and a huge thank you to all the dancers that brought their wonderful talent to this event.

 

 

Thank you to the dancers and our Stage Manager Jennifer McKinley for making this production possible. A big thank you to everyone who came to see the show and that gave their support. It was a journey to bring this second show together, but it was an amazing experience!

Eye Weekly Reviews
“…even I can appreciate Kinetic Elements’ skill and artistry – including Kendra Hughes’ choreography, which contrasts jerk, robotic gestures with graceful, sweeping motions.”

Merge Zine added that we are refreshing.

Here is the first of many trailers of our production reSURGEnce presented this summer as a part of the 2011 Toronto Fringe Festival. Don’t miss it!

reSURGEnce is a collection of dances takes a look at society and examines the way that we view authority, power and beauty.
