ALERT - Saturday March 14th, 2020
Good afternoon studio directors, dancers and families,
Since our last email concerning COVID-19 and the Aspire Dance Challenge there have been a lot of developments provincially. Due to the ministerial order to close all public schools until April 6th, the direction of the Minister of Health to cease gatherings of more than 250 people and the fact that our venue is closed due to COVID-19, we will be rescheduling Aspire Dance Challenge.
Please be patient with us as we work with our venue as well as potential alternate venues to confirm new dates.
This is an unprecedented time in our communities, as we have additional information to share please know that we will send it out to you as soon as possible.
Cathy, Jordyn and Fiona
Welcome to Aspire!
Saturday March 28th and Sunday March 29th, 2020
Rescheduled to COVID-19 - New Dates to be Confirmed
Georgian Theatre, Barrie, Ontario
After a successful first year in 2019, we are very excited to invite you to Aspire 2020! We are a Small Studio Competition and Workshop experience, for Novice, Recreational Pre Competitive and High School dancers ONLY!
With over 30 years of competition experience, we believe that dancers who train less than five hours per week deserve their own event. At many competitions, there are often so few entries, dancers are only ever competing against themselves. We are offering Novice, Recreational Pre-Competitive and high school dancers, a competition where they will receive a positive, supportive experience, will receive appropriate adjudication and have fun doing what they love to do – dance!
At Aspire we believe that dancers build important skills in a workshop environment, ones that aren’t possible through performing in a competition. For this reason, dancers competing in our event will be required to participate in the workshops on Sunday. Dancers will be offered four different styles of classes and will be split into appropriate age groups.
