So You Think You Can Dance?

Yes! We know that our students can dance! Or at least have fun trying.  So we are happy to have our Dance Program back again this year. Dance instructors Miss. G and Miss. S will be working with all our students for the second year to enhance our Dance Curriculum. 

We are back! Last year we had the wonderful opportunity to work with the students here at Westminster Public School, creating movement compositions and exploring creative dance. We are thrilled to have another opportunity to work with the students again in 2017!  During the month of February, we will be teaching a dance program where the students will learn choreography of the hip-hop/contemporary dance form that will later be performed. These workshops will occur on the following dates and will be followed by a final performance by all classes:  
  •      February 16th, 17th (classes 4/5 – 7/8)
  •      February 21st and 22nd (classes K-3/4)
  • ·   Dance Performance will be held on February 24th at 1:15 pm in the gymnasium.

The performance will consist of both live dancing from all classes and a video compilation of student work in class. Family members are welcome to attend and enjoy the show!

We will also be teaching an extra dance at our lunch hour Dance Club for Junior/Intermediate students who are interested. We will be performing this dance at the final performance February 24th as well. All this is included in your Arts and Athletics Package at no extra charge.

Please have students dress in comfortable clothing that students can move in as we will be dancing on the days. This can be anything with stretch or flexibility in the fabric, preferably not jeans, skirts, or dresses. We also ask that students come prepared to move in a safe space with others. This means for any persons with long hair, that it is tied back and off the face, and that any jewelry is removed.

Thank you,

Miss. Gutauskas & Miss. Sauve

New Year's Day

January 1 marks the New Year in the Gregorian calendar, and is celebrated by many communities world-wide. Korean New Year was originally a lunar festival, called Son-nal, held at the beginning of the second new moon after the winter solstice (December 21 or 22). Nowadays, New Year's is often celebrated on the solar New Year, January 1st. Many Korean families use this day to honor ancestors, have special food, and play traditional games. Oshogatsu (January 1-3) is an important festival for many Japanese people. Some gather with friends and families to say good-bye to the old year at forgetting parties. They also say hello to the New Year. Many Japanese, some of whom practice Shintoism, welcome in the New Year with prayers for renewal of hearts, good health, and prosperity. In North America, January 1 has become a day for Buddhists of all schools to attend a special service in the local temple. For many people, New Year's Eve is a secular holiday and has become an occasion fo
