    5678 DANCE STUDIO A History of Innovative Dance Education in Kingston Where history and innovation thrive is not only the motto of the City of Kingston, but also, an excellent descriptor for the ongoing dance education being provided by 5678 Dance Studio. Dance is undeniably an activity with historical roots, where ballet, jazz, tap, contemporary and ballroom all have their own origin stories. Moving into the 21st century, dance has evolved alongside technology, knowledge about the human body and its development, sports, and recreation activities. 5678 Dance Studio provides dance education that exemplifies the thriving of both history and innovation. Some of 5678’s dance students audition for and are regularly accepted into professional dance programs at the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, The National Ballet School, The Joffrey School for Jazz and Contemporary and the Joffrey School for Ballet, while others dance or perform in professional dance or theatre companies both in Canada and internationally. These students are taking their places in dance history as the emerging artists of tomorrow. Those who study at 5678, benefit from innovative programming delivered by instructors who are at the forefront of dance education. These instructors have completed professional development programs in Jazz and Tap through the Associated Dance Arts for Professional Teachers (ADAPT), Acrodance through Acrobatic Arts and ballet through The Royal Academy of Dance in London (RAD) and The National Ballet School of Canada. These prestigious and internationally recognized qualifications require teachers to continue professional development to keep current with the latest research in dance education. This means that 5678 students are constantly receiving the benefit of international innovations in dance education and physical activity. Not everyone has a goal of becoming a professional dancer, but dance has benefits for everyone. Whether it is abilities in physical activities and skills or confidence in performance, 5678 wants to see the whole person grow and does so through promoting healthy, positive self-image, developmentally appropriate programming, teamwork, and community. 5678 nurtures its dancers in a professional, well-organized, safe and inclusive environment which creates a family-oriented community.

DREAMCATCHER FARM Take Back the Reins It’s Never Too Late to Begin Horse Riding Lessons It’s been said that in riding a horse, we borrow freedom. Carol Bisaillon, owner of DreamCatcher Farm, couldn’t agree more; ultimately, it’s just one of the reasons she began riding when she was just eight years old. In 2000, Bisaillon decided to pursue her dream of opening an equestrian centre that would offer programs for competitive and recreational riders, as well as enrichment programs. Some of these programs are designed specifically for adult riders. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a timid beginner, these enriching lessons – set on 110 acres of lush green rolling hills just minutes north of Kingston – are perfect for everyone. Think it’s too late to begin riding? Think again. “You are never too old to try riding a horse,” says Bisaillon. “There are all different levels of horses, especially ones for beginner riders. Like any activity, riding can range from very moderate to intense activity depending on your skill level and the level of difficulty of the horse.” Lessons — whether you’re interested in learning hunter/jumper, dressage or eventing disciplines— are offered seven days a week. Whether you wish for your lessons to take place indoors or out, all you need is a pair of boots with a heel. Through your interaction with horses, you’ll learn not only how to ride, but you’ll also develop confidence and gain valuable skills. “Our philosophy at DreamCatcher Farm is to leave our clients a little more enriched through experiences with horses,” says Bisaillon. Stay active, meet new friends and enjoy the experience of a lifetime – register today. Riding Lessons • Lessons offered seven days a week all year long • Programs available from 4 years to adult • Ongoing registration for small group, semi and private lessons • Lesson times available during the day, evening or on weekends • Coaching for recreational and competition riders • Coaching for the beginner through to advanced riders Facility • Spacious, bright indoor & outdoor riding areas • Large selection of horses & ponies • Qualified, knowledgeable staff • Minutes from Kingston • 110 acres of rolling hills • Expansive facility Programs • Lessons • Leasing • Courses about horses • Workshops • Leadership • Camps • Women’s enrichment sessions

    PETE PETERSEN BASKETBALL LEAGUE The Tradition Continues After 62 seasons playing at St. Pat’s, the Pete Petersen Basketball League is on the move to a new home this season at the new St. Francis of Assisi School on Wiley Street. “We are excited at the prospect of continuing to offer a safe and affordable place for children to learn how much fun the game of basketball can be” said league President Roland Billings. “When Don “Pete” Petersen started the league it was a focal point for the St. Pat’s area of the city, and we are hoping for the same relationship with the community around the new school.” Registration for the 38 team league is still only $10 for the season, and sign up this year will be on Saturday September 9, from 9-10:30am. “We don’t have preregistration or on line registration so that all families are on equal footing to start each year.” Billings explained. The league operates in five divisions - Little Gals for girls 8-10; Girls – for girls 11-14; Little Guys – boys 8-10; Biddy- boys 11-12; Graduate – boys 13-15. The Graduate Division plays at Ecole Cathedrale, all other games will be at St. Francis of Assisi, and all ages are the age the player will be on April 1, 2018. “The way we operate was developed at St. Pat’s and we are looking forward to continuing Pete Petersen’s dream at the new school, where we will maintain the traditions of play and create new dreams for the next generation of players”, said Billings.

    featured on local news and community-focus programs and in newspapers. TK Danceworx has a proven track record in training dancers to reach their full potential, with some of its dancers having gone on to become accepted at professional dance schools such as the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, Alberta Ballet School and Quinte Ballet School. If accredited instruction is something you’re after, dancers can achieve various levels through the British Association of Teachers of Dancing (BATD), enabling them to achieve professional certification. Select students have even had the opportunity to assist with instructional classes and build teaching and interpersonal skills. Students have been selected annually to attend BATD North American Scholarship competitions in Toronto, with some dancers having also gone on to the International Scholarships in the U.K. TK’s competitive team is regarded as one of the best in the province, having won numerous top studio awards and overall individual awards at competitions throughout Ontario. We make sure the team is ready by bringing in industry-leading choreographers and offering special dance-intensive weeks. The results are confident, technically strong dancers with the best opportunity in achieving their maximum potential. Even if dance is intended to be a recreational activity, dancers are encouraged to take advantage of the unique opportunities that are available throughout the year, including participating in the Santa Claus Parade. The highlight for every dancer is the year-end recital. On this special event, TK puts on three amazing shows with all the glitz, glamour, lights, music and costumes of a big stage production. No matter what level you aspire to, it’s time to train with the best. Come to TK and prepare to shine like a star. www.tkdanceworx.com Skate Kingston Come Skate with US!
