Congratulations Carla!

I'm pleased to inform you that the 2011 Barrie Arts Award for Contribution to the Community went to fellow dancer - Carla Tucker. Carla is the Founder & Artistic Director of Moving Art

When I first moved to Barrie, Carla was one of the first dance artists I met. I phoned her studio and introduced myself and she took the time to talk to me, answer my questions and invite me to come see her studio.  She even made a point of introducing me to Nikki Russell (a founding company member of SCD) when she learned we both had studied dance in Chichester England.  Carla has helped me get to know the local dance community and has been an amazing supporter of SCD since the beginning.

We are proud to hold our classes at Moving Art and I'm so glad to be in the company of warm, approachable, supportive artists such as Carla. 

Congrats Carla! Truly deserved! - and a great honour to be nominated along side someone who has made and continues to make such a positive impact on our local arts community.
