Sloan band playing in Lethbridge Average Joes

Canadian music legends Sloan recently came back to play Lethbridge and since it’s been 10 years since I’ve last seen them, I jumped at the chance! They are still as awesome as ever :) (more…)

An Explosion of World Dance and Music, our 2013 Lethbridge show!

Saturday, January 26th, 2013

Ammena Dance Company’s “An Explosion of World Dance and Music” 2013 will be taking place on Saturday March 2nd at the Yates Memorial Centre in Lethbridge.

Tickets will be on sale on February 5th and seeing as how they sold out within a week last year, make sure you pick yours up early! But don’t go until I get the tickets I need to pick up ;)

With Bollywood and Bhangra being back in a big way this year, our goal was to combine that with more of a burlesque style (another big feature of the show). However, when it came down to poster design, I wasn’t feeling that the Bhangra photos were blending in and just focused on the cute feather showgirl costume that was chosen!

Ammena did her own hair and makeup for the Bhangra photoshoot, and the super talented Jenn joined us the next evening to totally capture the classic showgirl look.

This year’s show is just as diverse as the others, featuring Afro-Cuban, Bollywood, Bhangra, dancehall, jazz, tap, and as usual, bellydance. Sadly I’m not doing a solo this year as I needed to focus on my own wedding planning, but I still found the time to be in four group pieces!

Lana | Lethbridge Exhibition & Dance Performance

Lana Gabor art opening and dance performance, Lethbridge, Alberta

I recently attended the reception for Tracing the Elusive Past of the Chinarians, featuring works from the collection of Lana Gabor, and highly recommend you go check it out at the Helen Christou Gallery! I used to dance with Lana when she lived in Lethbridge, so I was excited to hear she was coming back from Vancouver for her show opening at the University of Lethbridge. She performed one dance piece for the opening, showing off her amazing talent :) (more…)

Hawksley Workman | Live in Lethbridge

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

This was possibly the best Lethbridge show this year! The Geomatic Attic brought in the super talented Hawksley Workman to Lethbridge this November and due to popular demand, the show was upgraded to Southminster United Church. It was the perfect venue for his stripped down show, which featured him on guitar and Mr. Lonely on piano and no other band members. He told hilarious stories in between songs, and drew out the show and over-sang because of how great the audio was in that space. His performance was stunning and sounded just perfect. He was so expressive that I couldn’t help but take a few photos! (more…)

Lethbridge Zombie Walk 2012

Saturday, October 13th, 2012

Lethbridge’s most recent zombie walk was yet again a huge success! This year the weather was gorgeous so there were more summer themed zombies, and as usual the makeup and costumes were so impressive! It’s great that so many adults and children can get together and have such a great time while shuffling along and eating brains :) I love when spectators pull their cars over to watch and participate when all the zombies attack them!

City of Lethbridge Summer Photos

Wednesday, July 18th, 2012

For the next installment of my City of Lethbridge photos, here is summer! We had an amazing summer and the city put on lots of great events so I had plenty of things to photograph! The great thing about being surrounded by farming communities is that it gives us such a diverse landscape with colorful fields next to urban settings. I love how rich and blue our skies are here all summer.

This is by far the largest post because we had such a long summer and I just couldn’t put my camera down :)
