    Celebrities Come to Bedance

    Celebrity Performance

    This season was full of dance education and inspiration. Our adjudicating panels were second to none. Each adjudicator took a special interest in the dancers who attended our events. They were sure to not only give well thought out critiques during each performance but, to work hard to make sure the dancers left having learned something. Each special awards session delivered dance "education" as the adjudicators used their years of teaching experience to bring their critiques to life. The special awards were also filled with inspirational words of encouragement and reminders of how to maintain a positive competitive attitude.
    To add to the inspiration that our adjudicators were diligently working towards delivering, we at Be Dance invited some well known local talent to perform for the dancers!!!
    The Next Step Stars Isaac Lupien and Brittney Raymond shared their talents on our Toronto stage, through solo performance and a brief Q & A session. The dancers LOVED being in the presence of these young celebrities, and most importantly they had FUN.
    We are looking forward to continuing to host special guests at Be Dance in our upcoming 2015 season!
