Lethbridge Dance Show Photography [An Explosion of World Dance 2022]

Yates Memorial Theatre live show, Explosion of World Dance and Music by Ammena Dance Company

After a one year hiatus due to COVID, Ammena Dance Company was back with their 2022 showing of An Explosion of World Dance and Music. Everyone was so excited to be on stage again, especially after months of attending classes not being certain if it would actually happen or not. Finishing the show was a huge emotional victory!

Cam once again did our photos and between his dance photography, Lise-Anne’s creative choreography, and Rob’s gorgeous lighting at the Yates Memorial Centre, the energy of each piece really comes through.

p.s. Like last time I’m in here a bunch of times! Can you spot me?


A Very Didi Christmas Carol [Lethbridge Live Theatre]

A Very Didi Christmas Carol in Lethbridge

Drag! Puppets! Christmas Spirits! I had the pleasure of photographing one of the two performances of A Very Didi Christmas Carol. This staged reading was put on by Theatre Outré and was a hilarious parody of the famous Christmas story. With catchy original songs by Jay Whitehead and Kathy Zaborsky, lots of dirty jokes, and puppetry, the fact I had to fight back crying near the end came a little unexpected!

This was definitely the most animated staged reading I have ever watched. We have such talented people here in Lethbridge theatre!


Lethbridge Promotional Band Photos [Jamani Duo]

Lethbridge promotional band photos of Jamani Duo

Last fall, Jamani Duo began working on the creatives for their new album. They loaded up their van with the instruments that were used on the tracks and we adventured throughout the city with all their instruments in tow. Normally when I do Lethbridge promotional band photos there may be a guitar involved, not a whole set up that takes 20 minutes to put together, so this was a ton of fun!

When they listed off the numerous instruments they had recorded with, the top down photo with their instruments surrounding them was the first image that came to my mind, and I was so excited to see it was the photo that made the album cover!


Lethbridge Dance Performance Photos [An Explosion of World Dance 2020]

Lethbridge Dance Performance Photos, Explosion of World Dance and Music by Ammena Dance Company

Cam once again rocked his Lethbridge dance performance photos of Ammena Dance Company’s 2020 show An Explosion of World Dance & Music. It’s so great to have him involved in my hobbies!

If you saw the poster from the show, you already knew there would be a bunch of retro elements going on. This year we had an American Bandstand theme with our show’s host, Gary, interviewing various dancers between each piece.

Everyone did an amazing job, especially the show’s creator and choreographer Lise-Anne, and the Yates Memorial Theatre’s lighting tech Rob.

p.s. I make a few appearances in this post. Can you spot me?


A Streetcar Named Desire [Theatre Outré in Lethbridge]

A Streetcar Named Desire Lethbridge

Lethbridge’s local theatre scene saw a standout production in 2019 with A Streetcar Named Desire. The production was done by Theatre Outré, whose intimate performance space at Didi’s Playhaus really added to the rawness of the play.

I was thrilled to be asked to photograph the show on its dress rehearsal night, allowing me to move freely around the U-shaped audience space. Every performer was outstanding, and I’m not ashamed to admit I jumped many times during Stanley’s outbursts, despite the detachment that comes from being behind a camera! (The only thing I am embarrassed about is that my only previous knowledge of the play was from the Simpsons!)


Lethbridge 2019 Diva Cabaret Drag Show at the Casino

Lethbridge Diva Cabaret 2019 in support of Lethbridge Pride Fest

It was truly a privilege to be able to photograph Lethbridge Diva Cabaret for a second year in a row! Once again the event was held at Pure Casino Lethbridge and sold out both of its Friday and Saturday shows. Many of the performers from previous years returned and we joined by new queens, hyper queens, and a few performers from Calgary.

This year marked the 5th anniversary of the Diva Cabaret’s start in Lethbridge. All proceeds went to support the 2019
Lethbridge Pride Fest. Each year the show continues to promote its themes of inclusion and body positivity.

I even spotted a few of my group’s former dance costumes among the performers!

p.s. If you missed the photos from last year’s show, you can check them out here!
