Celebrating our 34rd Year of Dance !
The Karen Luba School of Dance, Inc. (KLSD) was established in 1988, featuring 187 students. Since then, the school has tripled its size, expanding to various locations and three year-end recitals.
The beginning of the dance season starts out with learning lots of new steps, as well as mastering the old ones, and challenging each student to have fun, work hard and achieve their very best.
Three times a year, we have our Parent Viewing Days, when parents are invited to come view their child “in action” and be a supportive audience.
Parent Viewing Days will be on hold this season until health and safety guidelines permit this to occur.
In December, we have our Special Holiday Party where dancers are asked to bring a special someone to participate in class together and share their love of dance. Afterwards, dancers and guests are invited to share goodies, coffee and juice. It is a great time to be had by all! Holiday Parties will be on hold this season until health and safety guidelines permit this to occur.
After the holidays, we begin to learn our recital routines, incorporating the new steps we learned, and get into full swing for the recital with costumes, tickets, pictures etc.
In the spring, our younger dancers perform their recital dances at a nearby Seniors’ Home. This is not only a wonderful opportunity for the dancers to practice their routines and shed their “butterflies”, but it brings great joy to all the residents. Seniors' Home Performances will be on hold this season until health and safety guidelines permit this to occur.
Every year, we have our year-end recitals where all students can showcase all their new dance skills and the confidence they have gained.
In May 2015, Karen Luba School of Dance proudly received the Professional Conduct Award from the Manitoba Provincial Dance Festival.
The Dance School Staff is made up of very caring individuals who want to share and instil a love of dance in all of the students. It is very much a family atmosphere at KLSD – sisters Brenda and Karen are co-directors, as well as teachers. All of the teachers and assistants are longtime students of the dance school and all possess the kindness, love and patience needed to work with children - they are all equally as talented as they are caring instructors. Kendra Manness - who has been a teacher and student with the dance school for many years will continue to teach classes in addition to helping with emails, phone calls and other administrative duties.
