In early March, the Glendon Dance Team held its final showcases for the 2016/2017 year. There were many Glendonites, as well as family and friends in the audience supporting the dancers. We presented 25 wonderful pieces, including large group pieces, solos, and duets. The tech crew did an amazing job, and played a large role in the production of the show. This year, we added more lighting and background decor to make the production more complete and entertaining. As always, we introduced next year’s executive team. Seeing as our only returning executive member will be the Public Relations officer, almost the entire executive team leading the GDT through the 2017/2018 will be composed of new members. We are thrilled to introduce Alex Gimber as our incoming Head Coordinator, and Kaleriya Azov as our incoming Head Choreographer.
Our main events for this year have come and gone, but there is still more in store for the GDT. Our competitive tier will be competing for the second year at the Rhythm Dance Competition, against other post-secondary dance teams from Ontario. It will take place at the Milton Centre for the Arts on Saturday March 18 and Sunday March 19. The competition is looking fierce this year, as there are twenty other teams attending, but we are confident that our hard work will pay off, and that the support from the Glendon community will give us the boost that we need. We invite you to come and support us on the day of the competition. Admission is free! Our first entries will go on stage at 8:30am, so we hope to see you in the audience bright and early! It has been a great year, and we hope that everyone in the Glendon community will continue to support us like they have been doing!
