ORANGE SHIRT WEEK

At LT Dance Studio, we are committed to creating a safe and welcoming environment for all dancers.

Today is September 30th. National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. A day to honour survivors of residential “schools”, their families and communities and remember those who did not survive. Through orange shirt week, it has been our goal to actively promote awareness and help ignite important, meaningful conversations within our community.

To show our respect, there are no classes today. We hope you take some time to reflect and speak with your loved ones about what this day means.

Every child matters. 🧡

OCTOBER NEWSLETTER

Season 10 has started with a bang! What a wonderful first few weeks together we have had.

Next week marks the start of October and we have lots of valuable programs and fun activities planned for it!

The October newsletter is in your email inbox. Be sure to check it out for all the details!

ORANGE SHIRT WEEK

Orange shirt day is an Indigenous-led commemorative day that honours the children and families who survived Indian Residential Schools and remembers those who did not.

It celebrates resilience and affirms a commitment that every child matters. A message that is very important to us at LT Dance Studio. 

Students are welcome to wear an orange shirt to all classes this week.

THE JUNGLE BOOK

LTD is excited to partake in a production of The Jungle Book in collaboration with Shawnigan Kids Theatre Troupe!

This opportunity is open to LTD students ages 7-15 from ALL styles of dance. There are only 10 spots available. Participation will be on a first-come-first-serve basis. No audition required.

Dancers will have the opportunity to perform alongside the actors in the Shawnigan Kids Theatre Troupe. Together you will participate in a dance ensemble bringing The Jungle Book to life with fun costumes, professional choreography and a love for creative expression. Some dance experience is suggested. Acro dancers are strongly encouraged for monkey scenes in the jungle.

Registration opens Tuesday September 27th through the Online Parent Portal

WELCOME BACK!

We are so excited to give a warm welcome to our new and returning students for SEASON 10. It will surely be a fantastic season of dance for our LTD family.

Please let us know if there is anything we can do to make your transition into this new season a smooth one!

We Acknowledge

When attending the studio this week, you will see a demonstration of orange squares posted to the windows. June is National Indigenous History Month. We don’t have a flag to hang at half mast; these 215 squares are posted to honour all families and communities impacted by the Residential School System. Much like orange shirt day, the intention of this display is to promote awareness and help to ignite important, meaningful conversations within our community. Every child matters. 🧡
