Winterfest Weekend is Fast Approaching

It's time once again for SCD's annual Winterfest peformance. This year we are joined by two of our class groups, from our classes at Orillia Dance Academy and Kreative Dance Company. These classes are offered in partnership with Simcoe Contemporary Dancers and are led by our very own Regan Mcquaid and Chrissy King respectively. Come see what they have been working in class. Maybe it will be the inspiration you need to get in on the fun yourself.

We are also showcasing two works in progress. We first saw "Disassemmbling Disregard" at Culture Days in September 2016 and again at our holiday performances. Each time, the work has evolved and is approaching the choreographer, Chrissy King's, ultimate vision. Our other work in progress is a piece by Shelby Thoms. Shelby has been exploring aspects of the Greek and Roman mythology of the Fates, in modern times. The Fates, three sisters, are said to be the creator, preserver and destroyer of a person's life. In the piece, we see an excerpt of them hard at work.

Mark you calendars and join us this Winterfest 2017.
