• Breakfast Club of Canada

    Various - Various
    We are proud to support Breakfast Club of Canada. In Canada, 1 out of 5 children is at risk of starting the school day without breakfast due to inadequate access to food. This means that one million Canadian children are likely to go to school hungry. Insecurity and poor eating habits can have a significant impact on a child’s health and education, affecting their energy level, memory, creativity and overall behavior, as well as their ability to concentrate and solve problems. Offering students a balanced meal in a safe and nurturing environment where they feel respected has been linked to improved behavior and concentration, better grades, enhanced social skills and more self-confidence. Every breakfast is a step towards a better future for our children. Let’s reunite our kids with a healthy breakfast. When you donate $1 to Breakfast Club of Canada, that equals one healthy breakfast served in our schools! $1 = 1 breakfast. For more information and to get involved, go to www.breakfastclubcanada.org

  • Ballet Kelowna

    Kelowna Community Theatre - Kelowna
    Ballet Kelowna proudly presents exquisitely fast-paced and technically superb Alonzo King LINES Ballet on March 7, 2017, at 7:30pm at the Kelowna Community Theatre. Fresh off the stage following a triumphant appearance at Vancouver International Dance Festival 2017, the innovative ensemble will travel to the Interior to share two electric performances of Sand and Shostakovich from acclaimed Ballet Master and founder Alonzo King. SAND is touted as “transformative” – a sophisticated spectacle performed to the original, masterful score of tenor saxophonist Charles Lloyd and jazz pianist Jason Moran. The trailblazing jazz duo amplifies the virtuosity and potency of King’s incredibly talented company of dancers. Shostakovich takes ballet to extreme dimensions with its explosive athleticism. Set to four Shostakovich string quartets, the company is pushed to the limit, moving at fast, frenetic paces: one minute performing triple and quadruple pirouettes – tossed and spun into upside down lifts – the next, effortlessly balancing on pointe in gorgeous, long limbed poses. Ballet Kelowna is thrilled to announce that alumni member, Canadian dancer Robb Beresford, will be returning to Kelowna to perform with LINES Ballet. Beresford is also known for his previous work with Vancouver’s Joe Ink and Ballet Victoria.
