January Workshop

SAVE THE DATE!!!  The RHDA is proud to welcome Rebecca Thow to Regina as the instructor for our January Workshop (January 18-20, 2019).

Rebecca’s dancing career began at the tender age of 2 with the Rosaline Hendry School of Dance in Ellon, Scotland.  Rebecca currently lives in Calgary, and dances with the Gillie Callum Highland Dancers.

She attends Mount Royal University studying Physical Literacy.  Rebecca loves to dance and has been afforded the opportunity to compete all over the
world, and she enjoys being a part of the Highland community in each spot she visits.

Throughout her competitive career, Rebecca has won many titles including
Commonwealth, European, British, Scottish, North American and Canadian
championships.  In 2017 Rebecca was able to achieve a dream she’s had since being a young dancer by winning the Adult World Championship title.

While she loves competing, she also enjoys performing in different events showing her love of dance.  Some highlights include the 2014 Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony and the SOBHD 60th Anniversary concert.

Rebecca is excited to be coming to teach this workshop in Regina and is looking forward to meeting you all.

Power

I hope everyone stayed safe and warm with yesterday’s major power outage!  I followed the SaskPower blog and saw all the red indicating the massive scale our province was experiencing.

If you work, or know some one who works for SaskPower, let them know I’m not prepared for a world without power!!!!  Thank them.

Celebration of Life

Imogen

Yesterday our community celebrated the life of a talented and lovely young dancer.  Our hearts were broken to hear about her passing, but warmed with the highland dance community that came from near and far to show love and support to her family.

We share the Dress Purple Lognidry ribbon in honour of this beautiful daughter, sister, grand-daughter, niece, cousin, and friend.

Thank you to all of you for being there for the family and each other, and continuing to be there.

Happy New Year

Okay, so I’m a few days late (or 30 <insert sad face>); either way, Happy 2018!!!

With that, sign-up for our March 3 &4, Competition and Workshop will open February 1, on eventry.net.  We hope to you see you there <insert smiley face>.
