CTV Winnipeg News at Six Feature on our Outdoor Recital Filming during COVID-19.
CTV Winnipeg Morning News Feature on How Phase 2 Restoring Safe Services Affects Dance Studios
Encore Guardians was meant to be a live performance as the year-end celebration recital for Encore Studios. It was significant because it was to be the 15th annual recital for Encore Studios. With the global pandemic of COVID-19, in March 2020, all live performances were cancelled for the foreseeable future.
What to do?
How were these performers supposed to go on?
Where will their hard work be showcased?
A new hope emerged with the transformation of the year-end recital to an outdoor venue, and instead of a live audience, the performances have been filmed, a new story line created, and a feature film was made starring the students - the Encore Guardians!
Encore Studios was awarded the Studio Spirit Award at View Dance Challenge! Chosen by the VDC Staff, this award is given to the studio who has demonstrated not only the most spirit throughout the weekend but the kindness and respect to their dance peers. So not only do we boast award-winnineg choreographers and dancers, we are also 'the nicest kids in town'! (Sorry for bragging - just so proud!)
