Future performers in the making! (From the SJASD Facebook Page)
St. James-Assiniboia School Division received a special opportunity today as approximately 50 students enjoyed a Cavalia Odysseo workshop under the big white tent!
Students from St. James Collegiate and George Waters Middle School were taught dance moves and performance skills this afternoon by Darren Charles, artistic resident director and choreographer for Odysseo.
In celebration of Odysseo reaching 100,000 spectators in Winnipeg, Cavalia added another week to their calendar here in Winnipeg and donated $10,000 to two local charities today, Sistema Winnipeg and The Winnipeg Jets True North Foundation.
The press conference for the donations took place at noon and concluded with SJASD students running down the hill onto the sand stage! Thank you Odysseo for this great opportunity! All the students had a great time and left with at least a few new moves! Odysseo-Cavalia Winnipeg
