There is a special exhibit of Art at the Kitiamt City Centre Mall. Dance Impressions opened on June 26th with Mayor Joanne Monaghan who unveiled the centrepiece.
”This is the opening of the Dance Impression Exhibit,” said Monaghan. “Leah Correia has Contemporary Dance Workshops in seven classes in Elementary Schools and the following week, Eileen Hutson followed up the dance workshops with art workshops. Encouraged their dance in abstract creative and experimental ways and this exhibit showcases their dance impressions and I think it’s a really interesting combination and I really applaud you for doing that.”
With that, Monaghan declared the exhibit open. Louis Avery, chair of Kitimat Arts for Youth stepped up to recognise the volunteers from the program, thank Correia and Hutson and speak about using Dance to inspire Artwork.
“This was a collaboration between Kitimat Arts For Youth and Made in BC to bring contemperay Dance into the classrooms and the kids respond to the workshop with art afterwards,” said Anna-Marie Carstens, the Made in BC Dance Coordinator.
The opening ended cake. There was a lot of hope expressed that this exhibit will grow through out the years.
