Faculty Announcement

Dear Parents & Students,
Happy Thanksgiving!  Our 22nd season has just begun and we are very excited to see another season unfold.
To kick start the excitement, we are thrilled to announce that long time Faculty favorite, Heather Lewis, will take on the role of Associate Director at the Burlington Dance Company for the 2012-2013 season.
Heather has been a part of the Burlington Dance Company team since it began over 20 years ago, and we are thrilled that she we will be taking on this additional role, while continuing to teach classes as a member of our prestigious faculty.  Heather is a full member of the Canadian Dance Teachers’ Association, resident choreographer for Burlington’s Student Theatre, and a Certified Fitness Professional. Heather currently enjoys teaching as part of our Company & Recreational Programs, and is well known for her energetic, inspiring classes.   When Heather is not teaching dance, she works for the Halton District School Board as a Child and Youth Counsellor.
Congratulations Heather!

MacMillan’s Favourites Fundraiser On Now!

MacMillan’s is known for their frozen, ready to bake cookie dough and muffin batters and the name alone sells itself.  This season Burlington Dance Company is offering a “MacMillan’s Favourite” fundraiser which includes their favourite cookie doughs and muffin batters that are trans fat free and some are also peanut free.  They also have gourmet pizzas, “Holiday Time Savers” including mini cranberry and brie filo pastries, sausage rolls, and “Sweet Treats” including cheescakes, tarts, and pies.

Please speak with one of the competitive Company students if you would like to order some of these delectable selections.  Orders will be submitted by OCTOBER 15 so time is limited for this opportunity.  Company students will pick up the orders at BDC on OCTOBER 25 between 5-8pm to pass on to families who have ordered.    Fill your freezer in time for the holidays!
