January Activities

Usually a quieter month, there is a lot of activity going on at W&M.  We were happy to share our space with the Moving Series from Canada’s National Voice Institute; teachers Gerry Trentham (a guest artist in the Dance Division at the U of C), Drama faculty Dawn Marie McCaugherty, and David Smukler shared their remarkable skills in a full day workshop. Heard that it was a great success.  The Artists in Residence are hard at work and making good use of the studios.  Wojtek and I are working away with Calvin on season plans, grant writing, and in planning for the arrival of dancer Anna Krysiak (February) and the production of our March show.  Keep your eye out for Anna’s workshop, March 4th; she is a force!  As well, we have our heads down,  buried in the editing process, as continued work on our films gets some priority time.  As you might have noticed, we are also revamping our website.  Not an easy task but one that Mochniej and I try to enjoy.  The end of this month (January 28th) our space will host a meeting of the dance community with an aim to identify strengths, weaknesses, and needs in our community, to allow us to develop an effective plan for the future.
