I began adjudicating in 2006, varied Professional Arts Festivals across BC, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. I am honoured to participate, offer my opinion, and teach the next generation of performing artists and dance enthusiasts.
“My first dance festival as a competitor was in the late 70’s, I remember being scared, excited and most of all proud to have an opportunity to grow and learn from the guest adjudicators. I was excited to meet dancers from other studios, share stories, watch others to be inspired by… Festival was always the ‘treat after the hard work’. To this day I still have every adjudication form from every festival I ever participated in. Merits, Awards, Scholarships and challenging criticisms, the unexpected, the hardships, the most rewarding developments for young artists.”
