ON A PERSONAL NOTE>
Saskatoon’s winter held off until the end of November this year but has now hit full force. The dancers and I have braved -30 degrees weather to make it to rehearsals and now we seem to be getting an endless amount of snow too. Despite it all we have really warmed to each other and are truly enjoying our collaborative processes. I have been learning to knit (off the internet), madly making Christmas presents and am proudly sporting a knitting callus! I am really looking forward to spending some time in Ontario this holiday season with my family and friends. I hope to see many of you while I am there. I send out my warmest holiday wishes to all of you and may you have a wonderful new year!
Dancing across the Universe,
